Review:'s beautifully filmed...that's a good thing because that is about all it has going for it. A strange dark car shows up in a small town and it's trying to run everybody down...unless you hide in a cemetery of course! It's bloodless, thrilless...the car wouldn't frighten a squirrel! The most irritating part was the lack of explanation...why was this car evil, why was it after people...some back story was required...but no we get NONE! It's funny that James Brolin is in this one though...also strange is that it appears to have a decent budget. It was drenched in stupidity but I suppose bad movie fans will want to take note.

Availability:  On DVD
