Christine Reviews

September 5, 2019
If the '80s were partially defined by revenge-of-the-nerd narratives, Christine is more about the horror of the geek-id unleashed.

One of the more effective screen treatments of the era, however corny or preposterous it may remain on paper.

Between the smartest effects and Gordon's canny performance, [Christine] is more diverting than the material probably deserves.

I love Carpenter, and I like Christine well enough, but I'm not as enthusiastic about it as I am about other King films.

Relatively artless when compared to several other King adaptations around the time (Carrie, The Shining, The Dead Zone) or even with Carpenter's previous picture (1982's career-best The Thing), the film still delivers the goods as entertainment.

Proves Carpenter's mastery of both mood and the widescreen frame.

Fifties fetishism here is not nostalgia but critique, the cultural residue that deforms consciousness

Tight editing and some decent scares make this one of the better King adaptations.

This is the kind of movie where you walk out with a silly grin, get in your car, and lay rubber halfway down the Eisenhower.
July 22, 2004
Tense and faithful adaptation of the Stephen King classic.

It manages to entertain.

Carpenter's classic concerning killer cars.
