John Landis on

The Car

Released 1977
Distributor Universal

In Universal’s long history of memorable monsters, the least personable must surely be the devil-possessed automobile that hits and runs through the southwest in one of the worst reviewed movies of its decade. Nonetheless Elliot Silverstein directs as if he believes it and Jaws-With-a-Car has survived as a goofy artifact of the auto-obsessed culture of the period.
