One of the most successful metaphors of Stephen King books on tape is undoubtedly the "Christine". With the seal of the great Director John Carpenter will hardly fail after all. The script is original, successful execution and by many considered classic horror film anymore.

The central theme of "Christine" is the growing passion of the young Arnie for car ' Christine ' (the 1958 Plymouth Fury) which gradually evolves into a dangerous paranoia. The normally flwriko Arnie is a schoolboy who distracts the sneer of most rwmalewn schoolchildren. Unique friend Dennis in which go together in high school and exchange views on life and women. Everything will change radically when Arnie will detect the Red fatal car to an old estate where you will buy from the bizarre owner at high price. The Arnie is katagoiteymenos from his new acquisition and soon goes into a workshop for the necessary "lifting". Despite the grumbling of his parents who disagree with the choice of 17-year-old son, Arnie continues to obsessively deals with car while developing love affair with a presentable classmate.

Horror Trivia

In the film, I almost took the role of starring the then young Kevin Bacon but eventually the talented Kevin preferred the title role in "Footloose" that was released in 1984.

John Carpenter CHRISTINE

Along the way it is shown how dangerous it was Christine's market. The Arnie begins to lose his mind and passion with Christine in extent outrageous. Also the car is "alive" and possessed by diabolical tendencies. After an attempt to kill the girlfriend of Arnie, followed by assaulting four peers who earlier had secretly entered the garage who parked making her a smparalia and chwneyan not far from the driver. Restless Arnie's girlfriend with whom her relationship now bent, informs the glued (Dennis) happening, ekmystireyontas of bad premonition for the vicious nature of the car. The two of them must now stop the Arnie and Christine before caused new predicaments. Their mission is not easy, of course.

To emphasize that within the many positive elements there are some amateur interpretations without affecting particularly the good image of the film. I also believe that the film lifted slightly above blood after the murder is quite "discreet". With such lethal means could certainly become more impressive work in the field of gore. However the ' Christine ' seems to win the bet and time remembered as one of the most remarkable and unique efforts of the Carpenter who brought out a demanding endeavor transferring the hard King in cinema.

Rightly considered a classic horror film, although "technically" is definitely not a masterpiece.
