What It’s About: Nerdy Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon) gets a fantastic deal on a classic car-a red 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine. There’s just one problem: the car was born bad, exerting an evil influence on its owners, and killing anyone that gets in the way of the hold it has over them. Can Arnie’s girlfriend Leigh (Alexandra Paul) and best friend Dennis (John Stockwell) save Arnie before it’s too late-and will Christine let them?
Why Watch it Today?: Arnie buys Christine on this date in the film.
