A fun, entertaining, schlocky seventies horror film...
December 15, 2015
"Jaws" ripoff or not, "The Car" succeeds at making a vehicle just as threatening as any psychopath or killer shark. It's no "Duel," to be sure, but it's pretty solid all the same.

The action centres on a remote Midwestern town where a demonic driverless car terrorizes motorists, pedestrians and, in one of the film's genuinely scary moments, cyclists.

The film eventually grows tedious, and the climactic showdown is truly awful.

There's nothing under the surface either, no pattern or primitive fear mechanism guiding the car. What you see is what you get, and it deserves to be thrown back.

As silly as it sounds, but strangely dull.

Good score, OK crash sequences, and lots of unintentional laughs are the only reasons to sit through this movie.

Interminably drawn out, with some good special effects but its characters hauled straight out of the cracker-barrel, it has nowhere near the same minatory charge as Spielberg's Duel.

The performances are terrible -- thin and overwrought in the manner of actors trying to improvise without an idea in their heads.

...with a script this silly, it's hard to maintain any sense of horror or suspense.
