Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Sit down, buckle up and enjoy a joyride to Hell as the 1977 cult classic THE CAR will be hitting Region 2 Blu-Ray next week, and to celebrate we've got a new trailer from the fine folks at Arrow Video for you to check out below.

Often referred to as “JAWS on Wheels”, THE CAR has been lovingly re-mastered by Universal Pictures and, for the first time in its history, will finally be available on the Blu-ray format. This landmark release also marks the first time the film has been available with extras.

Starring James Brolin (THE AMITYVILLE HORROR) alongside Kathleen Lloyd, John Marley (THE GODFATHER), and Ronny Cox (DELIVERANCE), THE CAR tells the story of…

a mysterious automobile which goes on a murderous rampage, terrorizing the residents of a small town.



In addition to the HD restoration, Arrow has sourced a host of bonus material and special features, something which has never been done before for this film. The deluxe Blu-ray package includes Audio Commentary with director Elliot Silverstein, two exclusive featurettes on the making of the film and its history, the original theatrical trailer with commentary by John Landis (director of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON), extended collector’s booklet and, as is becoming customary with Arrow Video’s classic film releases, an exclusive reversible sleeve, containing both the original and newly commissioned artwork. THE CAR’s brand new sleeve comes courtesy of acclaimed illustrator Joe Wilson. A complete list of the special features included on the deluxe Blu-ray release of THE CAR is as follows:

  • High Definition presentation (1080p), on Blu-ray for the first time in the world!
