I remember seeing this film as a double bill with Day of the Animals on its release in 1977. Don't think it was ever on TV so I was really pleased when it was remastered on DVD about 5 years ago and now this cult classic film has come out on Blu Ray !

I simply love this film. The transfer is absolutely stunning, the Panavision shots of the car in the desert. There are some great faces in this film, James Brolin , John Marley (The Godfather), Ronny Cox (Deliverance) and RG Armstrong (Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid). The opening shot of the Car's first two first victims left me speechless, the quality is incredible, better than it did when it was shown theatrically. Arrow video have done a fantastic job, nice booklet and extras although the guy interviewing director Elliot Silverstein on the running commentary asks really pointless and stupid questions. Otherwise a superb and worthwhile release for this much loved classic.

A demonic-killer-car goes on the rampage and starts killing anyone who gets in its way. It's better than it sounds and has a good sense of humour. Some great stunts and a good cast keep it interesting. It's also beautifuly shot.
Highly Recommended.

THE CAR 1977
Review
Any movie that begins with a quotation from Church of Satan founder (the late) Anton La Vey, has to have something interesting going for it. In the case of The Car, the presence of a La Vey quote is extremely fitting, for the dark and demonic themes within might just get you thinking about the spiritual world. The film is an interesting and stylish attempt at taking a concept and making it more potent. It also predates both the book and film of Stephen King's famous "evil car" story Christine.
The Car is set in a rather non-descript Southwestern town called Santa Ynaz (filmed in Utah). One day, out of nowhere, a menacing, black car rolls into the town and starts killing people off. Sheriff Wade Parent (James Brolin) finds himself desperately trying to figure out a way to stop the mysterious car, but every attempt to do anything about it results in disaster. The car seems completely invincible and able to do almost anything. It comes and goes as it pleases, never being spotted or seen until it's too late. Wade is a man on a mission, but his police officers keep being killed off and hope is diminishing. Though some people have supernatural explanations on their lips, no one really knows what drives the car. The car lurks about the locality unseen until it suddenly appears and kills. Though people try and hunt it, the sedan always seems smarter.
Skilled direction turns this script into an above-average horror film. The central cast is filled with excellent dramatic actors like Ronny Cox, John Marly, and R.G. Armstrong, and some time is spent giving the characters some depth. We are given little peeks into their personal lives, for good or for bad, and it helps to flesh out the dynamics of this small town.

Arrow have done it again with another stunning package. The Car has never looked better, the picture is so clear it looks like the movie was shot this year.

Bursting with extras and with their trademark reversible sleeve this is one blu ray you NEED to pick up!

I love The Car this is a excellent film and this release from Arrow is just brilliant, plus the Blu-ray picture quality has been the best I have seen so far it gets a 5/5 from me and the opening scene when the car kills the two cyclist was near perfect, plus this release comes with a nice booklet plus a reversible cover, but for me the one you see on amazon is the best.

Forget John Carpenter's stuck-in-neutral Christine, the most enjoyable pulp horror flick about a demonic car is easily Elliot Silverstein's all-but-forgotten The Car, an early credit for the writers of Clint Eastwood's The Gauntlet and Pale Rider. Universal wanted a Jaws set on dry land - very dry land, since they decided to set it in the kind of small desert town that was a staple of Jack Arnold's sci-fi films of the 50s for the studio. James Brolin's the small town cop who gradually realises that the anonymous black car that's randomly picking off hitchhikers, cyclists and pedestrians may just be being driven by the Devil himself - after all, its appearances are heralded by an unearthly wind and it's unable to pursue its prey onto hallowed ground. That's pretty much it for plot, but with a few good setpieces that's all it needs for a tight 96 minutes of diabolically silly but straight-faced fun. Silverstein fills in the early scenes with some surprisingly decent character building, with Brolin and his romantic interest Kathleen Lloyd sharing an easy chemistry though there are a few moments with the supporting cast - particularly John Marley's sheriff and Ronny Cox's alcoholic deputy - where the odd missed beat draws attention to some awkward rewriting.

But for the most part this sells its high concept more than well enough, aided immensely by some superb 2.35:1 widescreen photography by Gerald Hirschfeld that makes the most of the huge open spaces of the striking desert locations and even belatedly (very belatedly: it's 87 minutes into the picture) manages to come up with a menacing shot of the rather dull looking car that transforms its fender into fangs.
