  • Description

    Made when Jaws was still the most successful film of all time, The Car has almost exactly the same premise, but replaces the ocean with the Utah desert, and the shark with a Lincoln Continental Mark III of possibly supernatural origin.

    When two teenage cyclists and a hitch-hiking musician are killed in apparently deliberate hit-and-runs, the police department of Santa Ynez investigates, whereupon the seemingly driverless vehicle turns on its hapless officers as well. And when the car strikes rather too close to the home of Captain Wade Parent (James Brolin), he vows to stop at nothing to defeat it.

    Director Elliot Silverstein (Cat Ballou, A Man Called Horse) keeps everything as slick and streamlined as the car itself, turning the desert landscape into a powerfully mythic backdrop for a potent clash between the forces of good and those of inexplicable but clearly implacable evil.

"Keep the road blocks up, get all the other guys. Get 'em down at the station right away."

I recall seeing this movie in my younger years and felt it compared very well to the Spielberg movie "Duel". The bluray version of this film a a big step-up in quality over the old dvd release and is one of those classic movies of the 70's. Highly recommended!

a classic

great transfer in high definition from previous DVD release . the blu ray image is clear an sharp , anf this is a 1977 movie . a must have !!!

The Car.

The Car is a great Film, Guillermo Del Toro's favourite vehicle finally gets the Blu-ray release it deserves all in Hi-Def and highly recommended with good extras and was a film that I waited a long time to see in a home media format.
