YMMV / The Car

  • Genius Bonus: The very idea of The Car being powered by Satan may be a Shout-Out to certain legends told about clever man-eating animals like the Beast of Gevaudan being possessed.
  • So Bad, It's Good: It's saved from being designated as a horrible movie mainly due to the fact that the actors seem to be portraying real people, done with far greater subtlety than is usual for one of these movies. Even the Jerkass Amos Jenkins has some Hidden Depths that are hinted at rather than shoved in our faces. And The Car itself manages to be cool and evil-looking, again without completely rubbing it in the viewer's face.
