Halloween is fast approaching, so why not get a little freaky? You might have thought about getting dressed up as a monster or a terrifying creature. But did you ever think about having a car that would scare the heck out of people? Numerous Hollywood horror movies have been made where cars have played a significant role. Want to check it out? Here goes:
Joy Ride (2001) and the Mad Trucker:
A prank played on a trucker turns into a nightmare for two siblings on an excursion. The swindlers thought they were pulling a trick on a clueless driver. However, they are in for an unnerving discovery. The trucker holds feelings of resentment, and now he is determined to raise a ruckus.
This was another spine-chiller in 2001 co-composed by one of the makers of the famous TV series Lost, J.J. Abrams, and Mud Tarver, who is most famous for his work on each of the three of the Joy Ride spine chillers. Steve Zahn, with the late Paul Walker, played the lead roles in the movie. This film is very much like Spielberg's Duel. The truck highlighted in this film is likewise a Peterbilt, yet this time it’s a Peterbilt 350 EXHD, a 1986-model. The long stretch semi-truck, unlike Spielberg’s red, is silver and dark. But like Spielberg’s, this truck and its heartless driver are hell-bent on causing chaos.
Jeepers Creepers (2001) and the Famous Chevy:
In the year 2001, the horror movie Jeepers Creepers was released. The famous model vehicle is a 1941 Chevrolet Taxi Over Engine, and its surprising horn is close to as startling as The Creeper inside. The Chevy's body was acclimated to transform into "The Creeper Truck." The wheelbase was abridged, a cage in the back was incorporated, and of course, you have the front watchman. Each perspective was meticulously created to realize Stephen Legler's conveying of the terrifying truck. Three trucks were used genuinely coming to the fruition of the film.
The Lethal Driver and the Stunt Vehicle in Death Proof in 2007:
Quentin Tarantino is known for making incredibly violent scenes in his movies, and Death Proof is no different. The blood and gore movie stars Kurt Russell, the man in the driver's seat.
The two vehicles utilized in the film are the 1970 Chevy Nova and the 1969 Dodge Charger. The 1970 Chevy Nova is very significant, being ranked #3 on Vehicle Choke's Rundown of Top 5 Chevy Film Vehicles Ever. The exemplary muscle vehicle, with its haunting matte dark paint job and frightening white skulls and thunderclaps painted on its hood, fits the executioner in the driver's seat.
Oldsmobile Delta 88 – Evil Dead:
This was a vehicle of Sam Raimi during his high school days. If you've never seen an Evil Dead film, you're in for a shocking treat. They're surely not for everybody, except the Oldsmobile Delta 88 utilized in each movie is certainly nice to look at.
1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo – Halloween:
While the film contains many vehicles during the times from 1950 to 1970, the Monte Carlo has an extraordinary, remarkable role to play in this infamous slasher movie.
There were many classic cars and vehicles used in horror movies, and most of them were massive hits. This is why cars had a significant role to play in Hollywood movies at that time (and even today).
