    As much as I like Christine, and as much as I enjoy the Car, gotta go with the best film and vote DUEL.

    I went with The Car. Duel boils the idea down to its essence, but The Car is just too much scary fun.

    I didn't care much for Christine, and I found Maximum Overdrive to be a terrible strain on the nerves.

    Duel is the better movie but Christine I enjoy more on repeat viewings as a "horror" movie - so Christine by a nudge

    I'd vote for Duel if the poll was for the BEST killer car movie. It's a simple premise. But I can't imagine anyone executing it any better. It's hard to sustain that level of suspense for that long. But Spielberg makes it look effortless.

    I voted for Christine. Duel's intensity actually works against it with me. I have to be in a certain mood to want to see that type of film. Christine, on the other hand, offers the kind of trashy fun that I enjoy on a daily basis. The bad guys are so bad that it plays almost like a vigilante film for a while. And Keith Gordon makes Arnie a very interesting character. I always enjoy Carpenter's music too.

    Christine isn't a great film. But it's hugely enjoyable and my clear favorite in this sub-genre.

    I love Christine, as both a carpenter flick and a king adaptation, its grown on me over the years. The Wraith I have very fond memories of as a kid. Maximum Overdrive is junk through and through (although if King could be pressured into recording a commentary for it, I'd pick it up in a second). The Car, I've never seen. In any event, I'll go with Duel. I watched it again recently, and it's a terrifically suspenseful little picture.
