    The Car

    ★★★

    It was probably inspired by Duel and it could have inspired Christine, but this is the story about The Car that was up to no good and started making trouble in his neighbourhood. James Brolin plays the local sheriff tasked with taking down this rogue vehicle. Ronny Cox plays his emotional wreck deputy with the all the crackpot theories about the car's origin and motivation.

    ★★

    Cenobites are people, too...

    I hate that I've started to need more out of my horror film viewing experience. I used to be fine with a movie only having gratuitous violence and nothing else.

    From the future director of Dirty Harry comes the original "body snatcher" movie. You know the story. You've seen this or one of its three remakes. I've now seen all of them. I saw them in the following order: 3, 4, 2, 1.
