When the fat kid is standing in the little parking bay, which is too small for Christine
It was actually a loading/unloading bay, but I know what you mean. Actually, that's always been a [email protected]
moment for me, in the movie; that bay was too small for a car to fit into, how in the hell could they load and unload cargo trucks there?
I guess they thought it was a more interesting way to kill Moochie than just having Christine run him down and then run back and forth over him about five times, the way she did in the book.
I like the leadup to that scene, when he glimpses her prowling around under the bridge, with 'Little Bitty Pretty One' starting to play, and then, yes, that priceless moment when he's face-to-grill with her, and says the immortal line: "You ain't mad, are ya?"
I kind of played out that scene, once. I went to a concert by French Horn Revolution, a synth-tech band from South America. Their lead plays French Horn soloes during some of their songs; he has a really nice horn that he plays, then he switches it out for an old clunker that he smashes on the stage.
They had a camera crew with them, so I approached the band after the show and offered to run over the clunker horn with my '83 Caprice, if they wanted to film it. They loved the idea, and I set the scene up like the one in Christine
: The horn is on the pavement, about twenty feet away from my car. The headlights are off, and the engine is rumbling. Then suddenly, the headlights come on full bright, the engine roars, the tires squeal, and I totally flattened that horn. Great night.
- Crazy. All crazy but I'm.
