A souped-up car with demonic issues indiscriminately mows down the folk of a small Utah town in this daft horror from 1977. James Brolin and his gloomy set of coppers (including John Marley) are charged with taking the driverless vehicle down. After a strong first half-hour, which attempts to imitate Steven Spielberg's light touch, the plot spins out of control and women get a very raw deal in this muddled film.
