"Her name's Christine." "I like that." 'Christine', like most Carpenter movies is an under-appreciated thrill ride with a twisted sense of humor. Solid performances, excellent score and John Carpenter can any movie stylistic despite the absurd concept. However, I wish Harry Dean Stanton had more to do.

I remember the lead overreacting in most scenes, which makes it laughable instead of scary. The car had more personality than the characters present. Pace of the whole film was sluggish though there were a few spooky moments particularly when the car was brought to life. Christine could have been better if it had believable artists, better dialogue and the element of suspense.

Popular car based horror that has the same weakness all Steven King adaptations have; Steven King's ideas are really, REALLY lame. What is scary about an old car, exactly...? Competently executed, but nothing more.
