Christine – la macchina infernale (film di John Carpenter del 1983)

CHRISTINE – LA MACCHINA INFERNALE è un film diretto da John Carpenter nel 1983.

Tutto parte dal 1957 alla catena di montaggio della Plimouth, dove un operaio si occupa della messa a punto di una Fury, quando il cofano della vettura gli chiude la mano frantumandogli le dita. In seguito un suo collega di colore siede nell’abitacolo e poco dopo ne viene rinvenuto il corpo senza vita. Vent’anni dopo il giovane Arnie Cunningham acquista la vettura ormai fatiscente da un anziano che gli racconta del fratello, della moglie e della figlia uccisi dalla maledizione della macchina ma il ragazzo, chiaramente colpito dal fluido malefico della vettura, provvede all’acquisto scatenando il risentimento dei suoi genitori. Christine comincia la sua opera sinistra mietendo vittime fra coloro che oltraggiano Arnie o si sovrappongono tra essa e Cunningham: perfino la ragazza che il giovane frequenta rischia di morire all’interno dell’auto salvata per il rotto della cuffia da uno sconosciuto. Alla fine inevitabilmente la fidanzata ed il migliore amico di Arnie decidono di distruggere la macchina infernale, ma la drammatica resa dei conti ucciderà il suo folle pilota, dopodiché Christine viene ridotta in poltiglia e scaraventata in uno sfascia carrozze ma, mentre sopravviene il lieto fine dalla carcassa della macchina, qualcosa si muove: è davvero distrutta?

Carpenter firma un film magistrale, tratto da un classico di Stephen King, creando un’atmosfera inquietante e rendendo una macchina in apparenza come tante altre una macchina di morte, capace di prendersi mente cuore e fisico di un ragazzo di sani principi in cerca di una sferzata alla propria vita. Benché la protagonista è una Fury, in quanto rara da trovare, la Plimouth rimediò fornendo gratuitamente alla produzione la Savoy e la Belvedere. Inoltre, a differenza della macchina a quattro porte citata da King nel suo libro, nel film Christine ne ha due. Tra gli interpreti troviamo Keith Gordon, Alexandra Paul, Harry Dean Stanton, John Stockwell, Robert Proski e Kelly Preston, futura moglie di John Travolta.
