Anna Rydell returns home to her sister (and best friend) Alex after a stint in a mental hospital, though her recovery is jeopardized thanks to her cruel stepmother, aloof father, and the presence of a ghost in their home.
Highschool geek Arnie Cunningham falls in love with "Christine", a bright red 1958 Plymouth Fury which has seen much better days. Setting himself the task of restoring the car to its original condition, his friends notice that the car is not the only thing that is changing. Arnie seems to spend more and more time with his car. He's also developed a sort of cocky arrogance which does not seem like the real Arnie at all. Written by

The possible origin of the killer car's name could possibly be from Christine (1958), another movie called Christine which was made in 1958, around the same time the Plymouth Fury was made. See more »
When Christine is crushed and dropped from the junkyard crane, the side facing Dennis, Leigh and Junkins shows a steel wheel very prominently. As they talk, they are looking right at it, and when the shot returns to the cube, the wheel is gone, replaced by Christine's mangled grillwork and front bumper- as if the cube has spun 180 degrees. The viewing angle is unchanged, evidenced by the crane's tread belts and the area in the background, and if the cube were 'morphing', the 3 characters would have seen it and reacted. See more »
John Carpenter adapts Stephen King's novel with skillful precision. A high school kid becomes obsessive in his feelings for a very strange car he has bought. The car is given the name Christine and repays her owner's adoration by "taking care of" his enemies.
It is fun watching Keith Gordon, owner of Christine, go from wimp to self proclaimed stud. Also in the cast are: John Stockwell, Alexandra Paul, Harry Dean Stanton and David Spielberg.
It is super cool watching Christine repair her damaged parts. This is an underrated movie that deserves a repeat viewing.
