KHFF Presents

Christine (1983)

Directed by
John Carpenter

Christine posterUnpopular nerd Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon) buys a 1958 Plymouth Fury, which he names Christine. Arnie develops an unhealthy obsession with the car, to the alarm of his jock friend, Dennis Guilder (John Stockwell). After bully Buddy Repperton (William Ostrander) defaces Christine, the auto restores itself to perfect condition and begins killing off Buddy and his friends. Determined to stop the deaths, Dennis and Arnie’s girlfriend, Leigh Cabot (Alexandra Paul), decide to destroy Christine.

Knoxville Horror Film Fest Presents the sole meeting of two undisputed masters of horror, as John Carpenter brings Stephen King’s killer car pulp to the screen in one of his most playful movies.

“If the ’80s were partially defined by revenge-of-the-nerd narratives, Christine is more about the horror of the geek-id unleashed.” – The Ringer
