This deja vu premise [from the novel by Stephen King] combined with the crazed vehicle format, makes Christine appear pretty shop-worn. Full Review

Herbie Goes Satanic in John Carpenter's adaptation of Stephen King's tale....The car's the star...

...[The] flashy auto dominates everything, its jealousy is effectively, and sometimes humorously conveyed....Technically, the film is outstanding...

Between the smartest effects and Gordon's canny performance, [Christine] is more diverting than the material probably deserves. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Relatively artless when compared to several other King adaptations around the time (Carrie, The Shining, The Dead Zone) or even with Carpenter's previous picture (1982's career-best The Thing), the film still delivers the goods as entertainment. Full Review

...The film is made with spectacular efficiency....CHRISTINE turns out to be full of Carpenter landmarks...

Rating: 3/4 -- This is the kind of movie where you walk out with a silly grin, get in your car, and lay rubber halfway down the Eisenhower. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on the best-selling Stephen King novel, CHRISTINE is a dark and violent film about the dangers of obsession. When a unpopular young man, Arnie (Keith Gordon), buys a vintage car to restore, it changes his life completely. The more he works on the car, which he names Christine, the more his personality changes. He becomes moody and dark, spending more and more time with the car and less and less with his friends. The friends become concerned as Arnie's passion for the automobile turns to extreme, and he becomes unstable. But the car has powers over the young man, and takes on a life of its own, becoming as obsessed with its new owner as he is of it. Their devotion to one another quickly becomes violent, and separating Arnie from the car is a deadly task for his friends. With CHRISTINE, director John Carpenter delivers a faithful adaptation of the book by Stephen King. One master of horror adapting another's work seems ideal, and the results are as powerful as expected. With Carpenter's ability to make the supernatural seem plausible, even commonplace, the film excels in evoking plenty of scares and nail biting from the audience.
