Christine (1983)

Car: 1958 Plymouth Fury

Leave it to Stephen King and John Carpenter to make a 1958 Plymouth Fury the scariest thing in theaters. The gorgeous automobile somehow has a mind of its own and is for some unexplained reason set on killing people. Regardless of how ridiculous that premise may sound, this movie was genuinely terrifying in 1983, leaving car enthusiasts everywhere sleeping with one eye open and on their garages. The poster effectively gives the car's grill a menacing look, giving the term "badass ride" a whole new meaning.
