Arnie Cunningham exists on the bottom of the high school food chain. Even his friendship with the high school Quarterback doesn't seem to earn him cool points. And what's worse is Arnies domineering mother who get's upset if he says boo.

    But everything changes when Arnie catches sight of an old rusty Plymouth covered in weeds. Instantly he wants this car. And the car wants him! Despite concerned parents, a concerned buddy, and a concerned and hot girlfriend, Arnie falls into an obsession as he restores the 57 Plymouth Fury to unseen glory. Arnie would kill for this car, and the car does kill for him as Arnie becomes darker and darker throughout the movie.

    John Carpenter took a short story by Stephen King and made it so much better on the silver screen. No remake can do this film justice.
