Product Description

Product Description

John Carpenter brings Stephen King’s best-selling novel to life in this chilling thriller. 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.

She can't (and won't) drive 55.... Stephen King's novel about the twisted love affair between a boy and his car gets transferred to the screen, courtesy of suspense master John Carpenter. Although lacking some of the more outré supernatural elements of the source material, this high-octane cinematic tune-up more than delivers the goods, horror-wise (Christine's midnight rampages will never be forgotten)--as well as being a sly exposé of the random cruelties within the high-school pecking order. Keith Gordon (who has gone on to become a stellar director in his own right, with films such as A Midnight Clear and Mother Night to his credit) gives a wonderfully controlled central performance. Carpenter's atmospheric original score is backed up by a well-chosen collection of rock classics, including George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone" (the titular character's all-too-apt theme song). --Andrew Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One of the better John Carpenter movies. Great special effect considering this before the fake looking digital effects of most movies today. The way the car would destroy itself or return back to form was done exceptionally well considering its all real, no digital effects. Even though this a DVD, not a Blu-ray, it has been re-mastered for high definition and the quality was very good. Definitely one of the better quality re-mastered DVD's that I own. Great period music! Never read the King story so can't compare it to that but a good and complete story. Some of the actors playing the senior high school students seem a tad old but other than that good acting all the way trough. When you think about it there isn't anything much scarier that a car that's possessed. That's 2000lbs of taking no crap from anybody.

Extra features include commentary by Carpenter, Filmographies and deleted and altered scenes. Didn't look at any of these so can't say anything about them.

Print quality and sound are very good on the new BluRay. The only part of the movie that rubs me wrong now is the dreadful bad language -- never noticed in when the movie came out, but wow it makes me feel uncomfortable if I'm showing it to people. The beautiful cars are the stars of this movie .. one of my favorites growing up.

the Twilight time blu-ray of Christine is long out of print
and the cost to buy a copy is close to $100 or more, so don't bother with it

the U.S. branch of Sony/columbia pictures
has finally released their blu-ray of John carpenters Christine
i bought myself a copy the day it was released to buy at a very affordable price $14.90, not the ridiculous Twilight time price
and i tell you the cost was worth it
the HD transfer looks beautiful, very nice sharp & clear picture quality in 2:40:1 hardly no Grain or Dirt
sony/columbia made the effort with this film
plus the sound quality has been boosted to a new 5.1 master audio mix which sounds excellent
much better than the old dvd version which had Dolby 5.1
plus all the special features, i mean all of them from the old special edition dvd
have been carried over to this new blu-ray version
you get all 3 featurettes, CHRISTINE: IGNITION, FAST AND FURIOUS, FINISH LINE
plus all the Deleted scenes with optional commentary by John carpenter
plus the old dvd commentary by Carpenter and Keith Gordon
plus stills Photo gallery, TV spots, original trailer
all on one Blu-ray Disc, incredible!
so for all those fans who missed out buying the Twilight time blu-ray
just buy this new U.S. edition of the film which is ALL REGIONS by the way
much more affordable than the sold out Twilight time blu-ray
5 stars for the film, 5 stars for this new blu-ray version

Arnold Cunningham (Gordon) finds just that car, which happens to be Christine. It's broken down, rusted and in overall poor condition when he sees it, but he doesn't care. He is going to own this car, and nothing is going to stop him. He spends his college money he's been saving over the summer to fix her up, and in a relatively short time Christine is back up and running.
Shortly after getting Christine, Arnold starts changing from the nervous unsure nerd into someone who has a lot of confidence. He even loses his glasses, and starts dating the new student Leigh Cabot (Paul), tagged by the other high shool guys as the most beautiful girl in school. Christine has a symbiot relationship with her owners, where each draws from the love they have for each other. Of course, owning Christine is destructive, as even a mild-mannered kid like Arnold is seduced by the car's evil, eventually not caring who gets hurt when it comes to Christine.
The school is populated by all the same kids you went to school with if you were in high school in the early eighties, like me. The jocks, the nerds, the toughs (Ostrander's Buddy Repperton) and the tough's click of groupies, who feed off his energy. Strangely, just the same type relationship that Christine has with her owners.
The writing is really good, especially the scenes where the high schoolers are interacting with each other. Took me right back to my own high school days. The music is also extremely effective, although the music composed for the movie is very reminiscent of the music for HALLOWEEN. The best part of the music for me, though, is how the music that Christine plays fits the action that is currently happening. One of my all-time favorite movie soundtracks.

King's books frequently don't translate well to the silver screen. This movie tries very hard to overcome that stigma. "Christine" does well, but the book is far scarier. Perhaps having read the book a few times has poisoned my view of the movie. Somehow the terror that Stephen King so artfully creates with words just hasn't translated well on the big screen. I still like the movie though, and will watch it again some quiet night when I need a little spark in my entertainment.
