“Evil has many forms, now it returns as, The Car.
A car possessed. Who knows what it wants? They all know nothing can stop… The Car.
There’s nowhere to turn, nowhere to hide. No way to stop, The Car.
What evil force drives, The Car?”
Happy Friday everyone! It’s good to be back in the swing of things after the holiday. I hope your new year is living up to the hype so far.
Before we part for the weekend, I want to share an amazing relic of our car-centric culture with you: The trailer for a 1977 movie called, The Car. I had never heard of this film until my brother sent me a link to the trailer (below). It’s an extraordinary relic of American car culture…
Isn’t that amazing? Meant as a cheesy horror film, this thing gives me all sorts of chills — especially in today’s world of zombie-like distracted drivers and AVs.
I didn’t watch the entire film, but the Wikipedia page says one scene depicts the demonic Lincoln Continental Mark III taking out two innocent bicycle riders trying to pedal across a high bridge.
And yes, I’ve already sent it to our friends at The War On Cars Podcast.
Try not to have nightmares!
See you back here Monday morning.
