About the Movie

She was born in Detroit on an automobile assembly line. But she is no ordinary automobile. Deep within her chassis lives an unholy presence. She is Christine a red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury whose unique standard equipment includes an evil, indestructible vengeance that will destroy anyone in her way. She seduces 17-year-old Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon) who becomes consumed with passion for her sleek rounded chrome-laden body. She demands his complete and unquestioned devotion and when outsiders seek to interfere, they become the victims of Christine's horrifying wrath. John Carpenter brings Stephen King's best selling novel to life in this chilling thriller.

Fresh: Between the smartest effects and Gordon's canny performance, [Christine] is more diverting than the material probably deserves. – Gary Arnold, Washington Post, Apr 24, 2018

Fresh: 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. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Tight editing and some decent scares make this one of the better King adaptations. – Film4, Jun 24, 2010
