A small desert town is terrorized by a powerful, seemingly possessed car, and the local sheriff may be the only one who can stop it.
Major stunts in the movie included a stuntman's first-time ever jump, a 196 ft fall from a bridge and a "barrel role" by "the car" over two other vehicles.
Wade... there's something I... I wanna tell you about last night. Well, the old lady... well, Chas, he didn't translate everything that she said.
Wade Parent: What do you mean?
Donna: Well, uh... she said... there was no driver in the car.
The dispatcher says the car has been spotted heading "north on Interstate 12". Even-numbered Interstate highways run east-west, and Interstate 12 is entirely within the state of Louisiana, running along the north side of Lake Ponchartrain.
The NBC TV version of this film was heavily edited for violent content. In particular, the scene where the Car goes into a barrel roll over the two oncoming police cars was totally removed, leaving the first time viewer with a major continuity problem. Other parts removed included the quick scene where the hitchhiker is shown being thrown through the air after being hit by the Car and later on, the Car blasting through the front window of the house is slightly altered.
