June 16th, 2011: The Car (1977)

Cast and Crew:  John Marley, R.G. Armstrong, Roy Jenson, Kim Richards, Ronny Cox

What It’s About: When a mysterious, seemingly driver-less car arrives in town, it’s up to Sheriff Wade Parent (James Brolin) to stop it.

Why Watch it Today?: The Ford Motor Company was incorporated today in 1902.  The Car is one of the more amusing Jaws rip-offs that also touches on the late 1970s fear of Satanism, by substituting a car that is literally evil and from the Devil for a voracious Great White shark.

Where to Get It:  Rent it from Netflix or Amazon
