with horror stretching limits this is still classic.

To this day, I still haven’t seen the movie, but I’ve heard it’s a reasonably good adaptation.


Before I read the book, even as a King fan, I thought to myself, “A ghost car that kills people, seriously?”


It’s such a fun ride (bad pun intended), though. It has some charming elements of Young Adult fiction, combined with one my favorite lines in any Stephen King book ever, and great chemistry between characters.


In the beginning, Dennis says that the story is a tragedy. Arnie’s rise from meekly nerd, to confident young man falling in love for the first time and his descent into sanity was indeed that. I genuinely pitied him.

I noticed that from the very first time I saw the movie....remember when Arnie drops off Leigh after their movie date, when Arnie comes back to Christine she jealous and doesn't start until he talks to her and assures her if their relationship never changing, then she plays the same song she played at the end " We Belong Together "....lol that's my girl..
My favorite moments are when Christine 'communicates' her feelings by different songs. Listen carefully to the lyrics of each song when watching it again. I thought this may be an obvious point (why point it out?) but many viewers don't always catch it. It'll leave a grin on your face.

What if Christine could play any song in any genre from 57" up until today.... equipped with a satellite radio that played From Rock'n roll to pop...what's your opinion ?
I wonder about this.

Christine was such a child of her age, and what do young lovers want more than for things to stay just the way they are? It's important to the story, it seems to me, that Christine's music is not Arnie and Dennis and Leigh's music. That said, I think an updated version could have an awful lot of fun with different music, and also with an updated idea of how many of us create entire insular worlds inside our vehicles nowadays.

Think about how jealous Christine might get today if you were spending too much time on the phone behind the wheel?

There are endless possibilities. :eyebrow:

Yes, the example you gave was the exact one that popped into my mind, lol. "Don't know why I love you like I do. Don't know why I love you, don't know why I care!" Haha.
I like Christine when she played only oldies from 58 or before. I do think it is interesting to think about your question, just by the sheer volume of songs she'd be able to choose from.

Yes, like when Arnie drops of Leigh and whould not start, and the song is something like "I love you"
