NOT WORTH THE R RATING!! Boring, forgettable, with uninteresting characters, little resemblance to the actual book, and the actress who played the main female lead looks nothing like her book counterpart, which really undermines half of the movie, in the sense that the transition isn't very interesting when the strange stuff starts happening. Not very engaging, slips by without any impact... But the effects were very impressive and hold up so well, even better than any of the CGI anywhere. Also the guy who goes nuts is very entertaining when he goes around the bend. Overall, a bad movie that is worth checking out if you are in the mood for stupid, mindless filler. JUST DON'T SAY IT'S WORTH THE R RATING!!! I expected some real great gore and got none. Not even blood!

A great mix of horror, drama, and tragedy.

Robert Prosky who plays Will Darnell, the owner of Darnell's Do It Yourself Garage, was great. Considering the low budget, I would rate "Christine" at 5.0 stars. The Featurettes under Special Features were terrific.

Ooh, I love John Carpenter. He made the best horror films, always with a hint of the psychological that makes you think and squirm way after the credits have rolled. CHRISTINE is a great psychological horror, based on the King novel, of course, tapping into the feelings of adolescent isolation. Arnie, a geeky high schooler, happens upon a beat-up old car and buys it on a whim despite the protest of his best friend. He gets to work beautifying her and she gets to work manipulating Arnie. Soon, he is bedazzled by Christine, possessed even, as he forsakes everything but her in an attempt to preserve his relationship with his car. She has a mind of her own and flies into a jealous rage at a moment's notice. She's bad to the bone and her engine is running. It sounds daft, but the experience of watching CHRISTINE will have you on the edge of your seat. I recommend giving it a watch.

A really-really-really demented and truly preposterous horror movie about a possessed car with attitude. This total nonsense could only have come out of the head of that over-rared, hack-writer, Stephen King.

Decent, if predictable, adaption of Stephen King's novel about a homicidal Plymouth Fury. There's really no explanation as to why the car is murderous. Keith Gordon ("Back to School") plays the kid who buys the car and soon becomes obsessed with it. He's a bit annoying. I spent the first half hour of the film trying to figure out where I knew John Stockwell, who plays his friend, from and finally had to look it up. He's Cougar from "Top Gun!" Cougar, who was holding on too tight and lost his edge! The only other actors I knew were Harry Dean Stanton as the jaded cop whose seen too much (but he's never seen this) and Robert Prosky as the jaded garage owner whose seen too much (but he's never seen this). It's too slowly paced to really work as a thriller, but the car regeneration scenes are cool. John Carpenter's direction is efficient, but far less personal and engaging than on better films like "Halloween" and "The Thing."

I really liked it! This movie was so good, but I'd recommend any edited version(s) because there was a lot of langue, however, I really enjoyed it! Is it a bad thing that I was on Christine's side? Lol. This is now one of my favorite movies, Arnold reminded me of my Dad, too. :)
