About this item

John Carpenter DVDs done right are a pure joy, as evidenced in Columbia TriStar's Special Edition of the car-gone-mad Stephen King classic Christine. This release sports a new commentary with the director and actor-turned-director star Keith Gordon, and it's safe to say that it does not disappoint. There are people who pull off good commentaries and then there are people like Carpenter, who have literally mastered the art with a healthy mix of wit, filmmaking lessons, and adept interviewing skills. Here, he and Gordon meet on similar terms as professional peers as they share fond stories of the production and their careers while making their way through a nearly 20-year-old picture. A whopping 20 deleted and alternate scenes have been included on the disc as well, with most adding good meat to the film and others that serve as a fine example of smart editing. The fun does not stop there, with three incredibly well-done featurettes on the film totaling over an hour's worth of new cast and crew interviews as well as exclusive behind-the-scene photos. Literally the only thing this edition is missing is the trailer, which most likely was tied up in legal issues with other companies at the time. The gorgeous anamorphic picture presents the film in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio, and its Dolby Surround audio track does a fine job with the dialogue, action, and Carpenter's score. This special edition is plenty worth it for fans of the film and those waiting for this solid of a DVD release.

    Christine the movie

    Owned for 1 month by when reviewed.

    I forgot how great this movie was, and the creepy the music made it! Christine was always one of my all time favorite scary movies growing up...I really felt how easy it would be to lose control and if a car like this could take down bullies in High school. The temptation to a still young mind would be very hard to turn away without the right guidance!

    A decent looking steelbook for an older film. I never would have thought that they would bring a movie, such as this, unto the realm of 4K.

  • Rated 4 out of 5 stars

    Has always been on my top 10, 80s Horror list.

    Owned for 9 months by when reviewed.

    Pros: 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. Cons: Atmos mix was close to the 7.1 on my 11.2 (7.2.4) which is a pleasant one but not an upgrade.
