Two bicyclists are chased by an ominous black sedan and driven off the road to their deaths. A horn-playing hitchhiker is run over by the same car a short time later. This small town’s police force isn’t used to such blatant brutalities, and when the sheriff is killed next it’s up to Officer Wade Parent to stop the hulking metal beast from lowering his town’s population any further. Suspicions arise as to who could be driving the car, but when an old Navajo woman suggests there’s no one behin...
It’s the future, Blade Runner on a non-existent budget, and violence fills the neon-lit streets. A district attorney guilty of his own crimes of grift and bribery pushes for stiffer penalties and quicker executions for the “real” criminals. How quick? A man is convicted in court, a tube drops over his body, and he explodes within. So, yeah, pretty quick. A local gang murders the D.A. in pursuit of an encryption chip, but when his body plummets from his office window onto his new car’s hood hi...
A surly James Brolin fights off the devil’s wheels in The Car, and he’s joined by a roster of familiar faces in supporting roles including Ronny Cox, R.G. Armstrong, John Rubinstein, Kathleen Lloyd, Kim Richards, and more. Brolin’s no stranger to genre fare with films like Skyjacked (1972) and Westworld (1973) on his resume, and two years after this film he faced off against Satan once again in The Amityville Horror (1979). Director Elliot Silverstein also dabbled in horror (Nightmare Honeymo...
Well, there’s a car. And it’s killing people. It’s unfortunately the DA’s possessed sports car for most of the movie, but – spoiler! – the original 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III black coupe returns for the third act. (Or at least a reasonable facsimile of one anyway…)As with the original, we do also get one pretty spectacular car kill, and while it’s not quite on par with the drive through the walls and rooms of a house it is guaranteed to leave a smile on your face. A bounty is declared...
The original movie is a straightforward Jaws riff with a supernatural bent as a large, fast-moving killing machine arrives in town with no explanation, proceeds to slaughter locals and spread terror, and is then itself killed by a cop and others. The lack of reason and motivation raise the horror and suspense as anyone can bite it at any time. Even the suggestion that the car’s motivation was powered by hell itself is left more than a little open-ended. Road to Revenge eschews all of that and...
Per the Death Race 2050 mention above, The Car: Road to Revenge feels like it was filmed in between camera setups of that direct to video stinker. To be clear, it wasn’t, as the former was filmed in Peru and the latter in Bulgaria, but the feel of the film’s world is very much the same. It’s rundown in a way that screams set availability rather than artistic design, the performances are exaggerated for effect, and the focus seems more on car action and topless strippers than on creating an en...

Jan 18, 2019 · The 1977 original ended with a perfect set-up for a sequel, during the end credits we saw that The Car had survived being blown up by Brolin and Cox, and was now heading into Los Angeles, but the filmmakers behind The Car: Road to Revenge decided to ignore such notions, and instead made a movie that is more a mash-up of Robocop 2 and John ...

‘The Road Not Taken’ is more than a poem about someone trying to decide which road he’s going to take on a stroll through the woods. It is a poem about the journey of life. The two roads diverged in a yellow wood forest symbolizing a person’s life.
The film tells the story of Jennifer Hills, a fiction writer based in New York City who exacts revenge on each of her tormentors after four men gang rape and leave her for dead.
But I can tell you that if you do go the revenge route, you’re destined for failure. It will come back around to you, even if the other person or persons completely deserves it. Just don’t seek revenge. That’s all. Before You Embark On Your Journey Of Revenge, Consider This.. There’s a reason why I wanted to talk about revenge for a moment.
