So what makes one of these four-wheeled, or more-wheeled asskickers stand out from the crowd? Easy. Look and power. Added weaponry isn't necessary, but certainly doesn't hurt.
So c'mon take a ride with me. And if I've missed you favorite driving demon, then spit those bullets below!
Maybe it's just the luck of the draw that world events have made the concept of this flick so appealing, but damn if I wouldn't seriously consider getting me a car that runs on blood. I mean that lawnmower in the trunk is just awesome! And fuel efficient! So you get the chance to go green and red all at the same time. Love it!
Let's just ignore the limp dicked re-imagining that assaulted our eyes recently and go back to the original which is a razor sharp political satire filled with massive mayhem and as high a body count as you could wish for. Leading the pack is David Carradine driving a brutal, toothy killing machine. I can't imagine how anyone other than nursing home attendants could not love this people pummler.
I love Mickey Rourke, but whatever the reason that he dropped out of this project I gotta say I'm glad, because Kurt Russell was the perfect fit to drive that absolutely beautiful car into a group of lovely ladies who turned into a group of lovely limbs. Oh, and Rose McGowan gets the business from this "death proof" car too. Man she dies pretty.
How amazing is the Green Goblin/Happy Toyz truck? Well it's a big part of turning a largely unsuccessful movie into a cult classic. Let's be clear. This is a movie that features death by soda machine, yet the grinning mug of that comic villain adds enough creepy personality to the goings on that it all kinda works somehow. Impressive.
Christine is one mean, single-minded bitch and ya gotta love her. The concept of a self-regenerating, supernaturally possessed car may be a tough one to swallow when you first hear it, but the strong hand of John Carpenter took a pretty sweet Stephen King tale and turned it into one of the few successful cinematic adaptations of King's work. I'd put this girl up against anything else on the list without hesitation.
