Director John Carpenter returns to the suburban landscape he explored so chillingly in Halloween (1978) with this lean, stripped-down adaptation of the Stephen King best-seller about a haunted car with a devilishly bad attitude and the teen underdog who falls head-over-heels for her chrome-accented charms. Shortly after geeky, horn-rim-sporting Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon) narrowly escapes a beating at the hands of shop-class bully Buddy Repperton (William Ostrander) on the first day of his senior year, he soon falls prey to a far more duplicitous villain in the form of a rusted-out 1958 Plymouth Fury nicknamed "Christine" by its crusty owner George LeBay (Roberts Blossom) -- who sells wide-eyed Arnie the old hulk despite the protests of best friend Dennis (John Stockwell) and the admonition of his domineering parents. As Arnie sets to the task of restoring Christine, his hobby grows into an obsession -- and the real power that hums beneath her hood begins to emerge, seemingly granting newfound coolness and sex appeal to the once-nerdy outcast, while simultaneously drawing away his very soul. A vengeful spirit, Christine lashes out violently at those who dare to stand between her and Arnie -- starting with Repperton and his gang, who completely trash the car, but are soon hunted down one by one and pulverized beneath the whitewalls of the miraculously-restored Fury. When Arnie's pretty, popular girlfriend Leigh (Alexandra Paul) begins to suspect she may soon be on the receiving end of automotive vengeance, she calls on Dennis for help... but a frightening midnight ride in Christine convinces Dennis that Arnie's only hope lies in destroying the demonic vehicle.~Cavett Binion

The storyline gets you hooked from beginning to end with the help of the great cast and dialog, plenty of quotes. Well written!!
Dolby Vision on an my OLED panel.
Steel case option.
Atmos mix was close to the 7.1 on my 11.2 (7.2.4) which is a pleasant one but not an upgrade.
Early Stephen King work. The story revolves around a high school boy and his evil car. Well written with plenty of suspense and horror. As usual, Steven King has an abundance of characters including the car Christine. It could be titled a boy and his car.
awesome 35th anniversary edition 4K HDR and Blu-ray release with digital copy .
I would recommend this to a friend

4K Steelbook / Christine
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
This review is for the 4K Steelbook version of Christine. I won't review the actual movie except to say that since I purchased it, the movie must be pretty entertaining, which it is. Instead, I will focus on the product itself. I have ordered many steelbooks from Best Buy and have always had positive experiences, both with the actual item as well as Best Buy's ordering process. This time was no different. The steelbook arrived as scheduled and the packaging was undamaged. The steelbook itself was undented, with no scratches or scuffs. Being a collector of steelbooks, this is very important to me. Also, the artwork on the outer cover of the steelbook is really cool. As for the 4K transfer of the film, aside from a few scenes of natural graininess, this is a very crisp and vibrant transfer. Definitely a step up from the regular bluray version. I would highly recommend this 4K version of Christine.
Video quality is incredibly colorful, detailed, very realistic and lifelike. Sony consistently has some of the best 4k transfers I've seen and this one does not disappoint. Audio is clean and clear with all dialogue, effects and the amazing soundtrack coming through perfectly. I've really come to appreciate Christine's soundtrack of classic rock music and its' faithfully delivered here. All special features such as film commentary and 25 minutes of deleted scenes are contained on the included Blu-ray version.
I'm always impressed whenever they can take an older movie and make it look so lifelike and Sony definitely did that here. Christine is one of the better Stephen King adaptations and also one of John Carpenter's best so I'm glad to see it get a 4K release. The added depth and detail and color make it all the more enjoyable. I am definitely pleased to add the new 4K version to my collection and recommend it to all fans
Excellent 4K presentation of the classic 1980s horror flick. A personal favorite, I thoroughly enjoyed rewatching this in glorious Ultra HD. The steelbook cover design is just adequate but the disc within is gold.
