John Carpenter Remade His Classic Horror Movie ‘Christine’ Into a Freaky Music Video
Plymouth Fury and all.
In October, horror legend John Carpenter will drop Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, a compilation of his most iconic movie themes. Classics like Halloween, The Thing and Escape From New York all get play.
In his first music video for the album, Carpenter payed homage to one of his most overlooked films, the 1983 gem Christine.
Based on a Stephen King novel of the same name, Christine told the story of a geeky high school kid Arnie who falls so hardly in love with his vintage Plymouth Fury, whom he calls Christine, that she falls in love with him right back.
Too bad for Arnie, Christine is a sentient killing machine who mauls down anyone who wrongs her.
The music video shows—in typical Carpenter fashion—a blonde beauty getting chased down by Christine over the film’s remastered soundtrack. Then, it is revealed Carpenter himself—in a black bolero hat no less—is sitting in the driver’s seat.

Let’s hope he releases similar music videos for all his classic themes.
