Black Cadillac Reviews
(2003) Black Cadillac
By looking at the picture, it looks like a Stephen King's "Christine" but ends up being the icy version of Steven Spielberg's "Dual", based on some of the real life experiences experienced by the director himself of John Murlowski if one were to watch it with the audio commentary as well. Straight to rental made on a shoe string budget of 75,000, is a moderately entertaining stalking chase flick after three college males leave a bar. This is an ambitious filmakers film with a twist.
3 out of 4
Amateurish and mostly laughable horror film that apires to be something of a "Hitcher" meets "Christine". It had potential, but doesn't come close to living up to it.
Three friends are traveling on a dark, wintery mountain road when their car breaks down. As they try to make it down the mountain they are followed by a sinister black cadillac.
the acting is sub par so don't expect too much from this. overall a film with potential misses the mark and gives us a below par thriller
Not too soon after they drive away does a mysterious black cadillac start following them. After they pick up a stranded cop (Randy Quaid) things start to get dangerous as the cadillac starts to make it's intentions clear. It's hard not to compare the film to Steven Spielberg's classic "Duel", which carried a similiar, if not more menacing, plot. The movie works best when the car is at match with the cadillac- making for someone genuine intense action sequences. Everything comes to a halt when the mood attempts to change to "buddy drama" and the fellas start airing out their feelings for each other and so forth. Sadly, the movie is a 50/50 balance with only Quaid providing any charisma on screen. Still as far as direct-to-video thrillers go you could do much worse.
