Dir John Carpenter
With Keith Gordon, John Stockwell, Alexandra Paul, Harry Dean Stanton
It’s boy-meets-car in John Carpenter’s darkly unconventional love story. When affable nerd Arnie buys a 1958 Plymouth Fury he gains a new found confidence, but it soon becomes clear his mystery machine is really the one in control. Shot with cool precision, Carpenter’s prowling camera lingers over his chrome-plated leading lady with fetishistic longing, effectively bringing to life one of King’s most idiosyncratic villains.
