“It's headed right for you”

Films: Wheels of Terror (1990)

Alias: None

Type: Man-Made

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an old Dodge car.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: We are pretty familiar with killer cars. We're even familiar with killer unknown people in killer cars. For today, we look at the latter subject, along with his pimped-out ride.

History: Somewhere in the outskirts of Arizona, a mysterious driver in a modified Dodge known as the Charger is going around, killing people and sexually molesting the ones who get lucky. Bad news for the new school bus driver, who finds herself and her little daughter stalked by the malevolent being.

Notable Kills: This mad being is most certainly not above killing children.

Final Fate: After almost kidnapping the driver's daughter, the Charger is rammed into going off a cliff. It then appears again...only to miss its mark and go sailing off the edge of a higher cliff and straight into a bunch of explosives.

Powers/Abilities: Insane durability.

Weakness: Heavy artillery.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-You may have once thought that the Big Rig from "Duel" was bad, and you were right, but at least that thing didn't have the intentions of kidnapping youngsters for the sake of depravity! The Charger itself has lights that make it look like it has a permanent scowl, and its driver is horrifically evocative of real-life rapists.

Trivia: -The Charger is a hybrid of the 1971-74 Dodge Charger.

-This film was originally going to take place in Nappa Valley, California, but that fell through due to budget limitations.

You forgot 'The Car', you uncultured swine!
This 'Magic School Bus' episode is getting way out of hand! And they had an episode where they fought a giant mantis!
