Product description

Product Description

THERE'S NOWHERE TO RUN, NOWHERE TO HIDE, NO WAY TO STOP... THE CAR

Made when Jaws was still the most successful film of all time, The Car has almost exactly the same premise, but replaces the ocean with the Utah desert, and the shark with a Lincoln Continental Mark III of possibly supernatural origin.

When two teenage cyclists and a hitch-hiking musician are killed in apparently deliberate hit-and-runs, the police department of Santa Ynez investigates, whereupon the seemingly driverless vehicle turns on its hapless officers as well. And when the car strikes rather too close to the home of Captain Wade Parent (James Brolin), he vows to stop at nothing to defeat it.

Director Elliot Silverstein (Cat Ballou, A Man Called Horse) keeps everything as slick and streamlined as the car itself, turning the desert landscape into a powerfully mythic backdrop for a potent clash between the forces of good and those of inexplicable but clearly implacable evil.

    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.

    One of those classic grade B horror movies, which might have been inspired by KILLDOZER and also pre-dates Stephen King's CHRISTINE and MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE by several years ! A mysterious black customized car is terrorising a small MidWest town and it's up to the local sheriff Wade Parent(James Brolin from Gentle Ben) and his recovering alchy buddy Luke(Ronny Cox - Vilas Cohagen in the original Total Recall) to find out exactly what's happening. First two cyclists are mowed down then a travelling tuba player is flattened by the car while hitch-hiking and interrupting the most unintentionally hilarious domestic row you will see on screen, including the line "If I hear one more peep out of that thing I'm gonna ram it so far up your ass you'll be fartin' music for a whole year!". Wade is tipped off that there was no driver in the car as its death rampage spins out of control, the police chief is killed and then the car attacks school band practice at the local racetrack . . . and Luke relapses back to the bottle as he becomes so unsettled. How will the local law enforcement officers stop the killer car? Yes, the plot is ridiculous but the movie contains a good sense of menace, some great stunts and visual effects, not to mention the action packed second half. What is great about the Blu Ray transfer is that the widescreen shots of the desert mountain scenery look fantastic - the customised car(which i will say inspired Bender and the Were-Car in FUTURAMA too) is suitable menacing in all its glory, the sound mix is spot on and picture quality so good it makes the movie look as though it was shot recently instead of 40 years ago. Well worth the money!!
