All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Car that Ate Paris (1974)

AKA: The Car That Eat People

Starring: John Meillon, Bruce Spence, Terry Camilleri
Director: Peter Weir

A small, rural town causes car wrecks as a mean to provide themselves with finances.

My Take:
Like a lot of the director's early films, this is an unsettling weird movie.
While most of the carnage is shown off screen, the viewer does see some aftermath. But this movie isn't about the blood. It's really about the town dynamic. Everyone in the town is in on the situation but many aren't happy with how the wealth is dispersed, especially the younger ones who decide to take a stand against the elders.
A truly unique flick.

Rating: In the middle
