FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: The Car

Co-presented by SCREAM FACTORY

Before Christine and Maximum Overdrive there was…The Car! One of the wildest and weirdest of the post-Jaws unstoppable killing machine boom of the late 70′s, The Car takes the simple and brilliant premise of a driverless car on a murder rampage to its most awesome and hilarious conclusion. Director Elliot Silverstein (Cat Ballou, A Man Called Horse) brings his flair for Westerns to this modern day tale of vehicular manslaughter, aided by the sturdy, manly presences of James Brolin and Ronny Cox. But what you’ll really appreciate is how gonzo crazy the movie is from bumper to bumper, a literal non-stop thrill ride with a dash of supernatural horror tucked in there under the hood. It’s a rare treat to catch this on the big screen, so pop the top down, rev the engine and take this monster for a ride!

Dir. Elliot Silverstein, 1977, 35mm, 96 min.
