Editors Note
Note James Brolin stars as Sheriff Wade Parent, a man who must stop a large, black 2-door sedan from terrorizing a small New Mexican town. No one knows the car's origin, who is driving it, or how to stop it. After it kills three people, the Sheriff must find a way to stop this seemingly indestructible machine. Who is behind the wheel? Could it be...Satan? That may be the case given that late Church of Satan leader Anton LaVey was given a 'Technical Advisor' credit on the film! Though it was greeted by a chorus of jeers when it surfaced in 1977, THE CAR is an oddly gripping and altogether unconventional horror film. From the director of A MAN CALLED HORSE and a script co-written by Michael Butler, writer of PALE RIDER.

Review So there's a deadly, demonic, driverless car driving around a small desert town turning jaywalkers into pancakes and filling potholes with brain matter...Since everyone knows that possessed cars can't enter hallowed ground, the townsfolk camp out in a local graveyard so they don't get turned into roadkill while sheriff James Brolin and Small Desert Town, USA's finest (including John Marley from Deathdream and Ronny Cox from Robocop) track the car down and try to give it a parking ticket...Some of the scenes of the car stalking it's prey are pretty intense (especially the opening sequence) and feature negative POV shots of the evil auto. Unfortunately you got to sit through a lot of inane lovey dovey bullshit featuring Brolin trying to get his daughters to warm up to his new girlfriend (Kathleen Lloyd from It Lives Again), tons of boring police procedure malarkey and plenty of Indian mumbo jumbo before you get to the good stuff...Brolin is OK in the lead, but all his charisma is in his moustache. He would later go on to face the ultimate terror when he married Barbara Streisand. Lloyd is pretty hilarious when she taunts the car by calling it a "psycho idiot horse's ass!", but it's R.G. (Predator) Armstrong who gets the movie's best line: "I'm going to shove that horn so far up your ass you'll be farting music for a year!"
