Plot
The main plot of Christine happens between high school students. This is more than a movie about a geek and his car. It’s a twisted coming of age story. It is also so much more than what the first act foreshadows. There is a constant ambiguity as to who the protagonists and antagonists are. What makes someone evil? Are bullies truly evil in a film about a possessed car?
The lead character’s values sure deteriorate fast when he starts feeling he’s in control. He’s played by Keith Gordon, a perfect casting choice. John Stockwell plays his best friend. He's the real hero. Their arcs are both fascinating. Most of the other performances are rather flat. Most of the actors are only here for the slasher aspect, which acts as a double-edged sword on the audience.
Christine is the masterpiece you obtain when you combine the talents of masters of horror John Carpenter and Stephen King. Considering the stellar special effects, photography, score and the palpable ambiance, this is one of their best portfolio pieces. It’s a scary movie filled with commentary on society, but you can miss or ignore it all and you’ll still have a good time.
