The Killer Vehicles Collection

Subgenres are beneficial to their parent genre. Without them there's a risk we'd get inundated with even more clones. That’s almost as bad as accepting whatever’s popular at any given time; i.e. pure hell for me. The killer vehicle subgenre is an odd one. I mean ‘killer’ as in the vehicle has a mind of its own, occupied with murderous intent or demonic vengeance, not that it looks sexy. Although, it can fit into both categories, I suppose. Mostly they’re B-Movies; but not always bad movies, even if the concept is pretty bat-shit crazy. Here’s what we've got so far:

01. Killdozer (1974)
02. The Car (1977)
03. Death Ship (1980)
04. Christine (1983)
05. Maximum Overdrive (1986)
06. Trucks (1997)

This one doesn't quite fit the definition but it’s too similar not to get an honourable mention:
01. Duel (1971)
