Everyday I brave the deadly gauntlet that is Austin traffic. Beholden to my Nintendo-honed reflexes, I gamble my well-being with every lane change; every turn of the wheel. Recently, as I sat grinding my teeth and stagnating behind a line of semis, I pondered the immeasurable joy I would experience if one of these idling vehicles suddenly gained sentience and decided to mow down any object or carbon-based fool in its path. Of the innumerable sub-genres of horror to choose from, like a glorious buffet of cinematic slaughterings, one of my absolute favorites is the killer car movie. So I decided to to slide behind the wheel of five of my favorite entries and see if I could squeeze a few more miles out of them. Buckle up beasties, it's gonna be a bit bumpy.
