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

Christine [Includes Digital Copy] [4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray] 
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 .

An Underappreciated Carpenter/King Film
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
This is the best available presentation of a film that is criminally overlooked in John Carpenter's oeuvre and the long list of Stephen King film adaptations. It's the story of a young man and his relationship with a demonic car that serves as a perfect allegory for an abusive relationship. In terms of special features, nothing has been added to this release that wasn't in the blu ray release but the upgrade to audio and video are appreciated and the price is right.
Nearly everyone already has their own opinions on this movie. But if you happen to be a fan, then you'll want to own this beautifully transferred 4K UHD version. Simply the best this movie has ever looked. Well worth the money for anyone who wants to have the best.
This classic horror flick, scary, but very well put together, and has many great, fantastic special effects throughout the movie. We also love the fact that this movie is now available on the 4K format. Best Buy has it all, under one roof.
