The Car 1999 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
In 1977 I was still young enough to fall for hype; Starlog magazine claimed “Star Wars” was going to be “Everything a science fiction fan ever wanted to see on the screen,” so I went in expecting Asimov, Bester & Clarke and got Flash Gordon instead. It took me several years to appreciate that film for what it was.
Shortly thereafter a film I had never heard of played in the theatre down the street; a thriller called “The Car.” I went to see it having no idea what it was or where it was going, and it took a surreal, supernatural turn I didn’t expect… so I can truly say I liked it better than “Star Wars.” That really isn’t the case any more, but “The Car” is still a great little B-picture, unapologetically weird and clever enough to avoid any explanations for the bizarrerie.
And The Car still looks meaner than Darth, even with his helmet on.
