    Duel, although Christine is a close second followed by The Car. Have never seen The Wraith or Maximum Overdrive.

    HOOOOOOOOOOOONNNKKKKKKKKKK, The Car!

    The Wraith is also a guilty pleasure.
     
  3. Hard one for me. I love Christine and it has a lot of memories for me but I had to pick Duel just because I think it's a better film.....and I had a lot of fun with it too.

    Christine definitely, with Maximum Overdrive close second.

    Went with Christine since I'm such a Carpenter nut, but The Wraith was a close second.

    Tough call between The Car and Duel, but I went with The Car. I got the Anchor Bay DVD shortly before it went OOP in 2004.

    Christine and Maximum Overdrive are both very fun too.

    I enjoyed them all, with the exception of "The Car" which I haven't seen yet. Out of those John Carpenter's Christine is easily the best, IMHO.

    Speaking of "The Car", I just found out about that movie a few weeks ago in an old Fangoria article on Kim Richards...was gonna rent it but Netflix doesn't carry it. Then I foolishly realized it was OOP. :mad:

    In my opinion, I wouldn't call The Wraith a killer car movie.

    For the chesse factor alone, Maximum Overdrive.

    You know a bulldozer is possessed when it can run over a kid. Most bulldozers you could walk out of the way from. But not a POSSESSED bulldozer.

    The world is a better place with Maximum Overdrive.

    Christine and Duel are both excellent though, in their own rights. Though, technically, Duel is a killer truck movie.

    Went with The Wraith. That movie has always held a special place in my heart. It's just so cheesy and ya got the hot babe and her a-hole boyfriend and all the heavy metal music and the cool Dodge Interceptor and all the bad acting and shit blowin' up; it's got it all.
