MSN has a post titled, "Most Haunting Rides Of Film And TV." Who should take center stage? Christine. Now we're talking horror movies! I liked both the film and the book (in that order, since I saw the film first.)
Sharing the road with King's own Maximum Overdrive won't be easy for Christine, as that one comes in #8 of 14.
About Christine the MSN article notes:
To say that "Christine" (1983) is about a bloodthirsty car is true. But it's more true to say that it's an utterly demented love story about a boy and his restored '58 Plymouth Fury. Like so many codependent high-school relationships, it ends badly, with Christine going on a bully-killing rampage, while her nerdy teenage paramour takes the hint and becomes a callous, beer-drinking bad boy. The Fury winds up compacted but unbowed; the epilogue shows her cubed frame stirring, beginning the long road to demonic recovery.The article also mentions a movie called "Duel" (1971) -- which I found to be strangely engrossing. I can't explain it -- but it was cool.
But, alas. . . my favorite has to go to The Munster Koach, which "is a cobbled-together Frankenstein monstrosity of parts harvested from the Ford Model T. George Barris, the Koach's creator, used three of Henry Ford's seminal cars to create an 18-foot-long chopped hot rod."
