Most drivers want nothing more than to have a safe, reliable car. But what happens when your vehicle takes on a mind of its own, or even a soul? You get a “killer” vehicle, the likes of which appear only in movies. With the ’70s and ’80s being the heyday for the muscle car, it stands to reason that folks started wondering what might happen if the cars themselves could flex and fight back.
We hope reading through our list of fictional vehicles out for blood serves as a reminder to take care of your baby. Wash it, service it and kick the tires every once in a while. You wouldn’t want to make Christine mad, would you?
1. CHRISTINE (1983) — 1958 Plymouth Fury
Adapted from the Stephen King novel of the same name and directed by horror legend John Carpenter, “Christine” is about a sentient car that’s pretty much pure evil incarnate. Homicidal, jealous and possessive, the Plymouth Fury known as Christine is rotten to the core from the moment she rolls off the factory line. Cherry red and brutal as all hell, this cinematic killer car is easily the most iconic of all time.
