Storyline

A racecar driver returns from the dead to seek revenge against his former rival. Seventeen years ago, Cutter McCullough and JJ Sawyer were burning rubber on the tracks when McCullough perished in a fiery crash. In the aftermath of that accident, Sawyer was riddled with survivor's guilt, and vowed never to race again. Almost two decades later, Sawyer is making his living transporting racecars to the track when he decides to pay a visit to his old hometown. There, he sees that McCullough's car has been mysteriously restored, and senses a familiar presence in the driver's seat: McCullough is back, and he's determined to settle the score. When Sawyer becomes the prime suspect in a gruesome series of murders, he realizes he's not the only one in danger; his ex-girlfriend and her daughter have somehow ended up on McCullough's "to kill" list as well, and if Sawyer fails to save them, the highways will soon run red with blood.

Phantom racer sure, but a dead car!
8 November 2010 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

This movie reminds me of the novel Christine by Stephen King, where a haunted car goes on a killing spree. That book gave me the chills from start to end, but this movie pales so, so much in comparison.

The story showed lot of promise at least in terms of thrilling car chases and blood-curdling violence between man & metal but the execution was disappointing. Very average action and a lame climax. Maybe the budget of the movie was an issue? Can't say much about the performances too, decent though.

At least one good aspect are the initial murders committed by the car, which's quite wild & gory.

Verdict: Naaah. Dump this ghost ride!
