Surprise: John Carpenter's new Christine short!

It was just the other day that we brought you guys the news that John Carpenter has read Danny McBride and David Gordon Green's screenplay for Blumhouse's new HALLOWEEN 2018 and today we have even more awesome news from the reigning master of horror.

Turns out Carpenter has directed an all-new short film based on Stephen King's CHRISTINE!

As you very well know, Carpenter helmed the 1983 adaptation of King's novel so this isn't exactly new territory for the man, but that doesn't keep the new short - which is actually a music video to promote his upcoming Anthology album - from being the coolest thing you'll see all week!

Between this new video and CHRISTINE showing up recently in the trailers for THE DARK TOWER and READY PLAYER ONE, it looks like the classic car from Hell is having quite the comeback. I dig it!

You can check out the video below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram!

CHRISTINE synopsis:

Unpopular nerd Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon) buys a 1958 Plymouth Fury, which he names Christine. Arnie develops an unhealthy obsession with the car, to the alarm of his jock friend, Dennis Guilder (John Stockwell). After bully Buddy Repperton (William Ostrander) defaces Christine, the auto restores itself to perfect condition and begins killing off Buddy and his friends. Determined to stop the deaths, Dennis and Arnie's girlfriend, Leigh Cabot (Alexandra Paul), decide to destroy Christine.
