I wonder why the trailer neglects to tell us that the dog houses the reincarnated soul of the little kid's father, who croaked in a car accident. Read the synopsis of the rest of the film to learn of its heart-warming tale of death, malevolence, vivisection, and heartbreak. A feel-good pic!

Internet Movie Cars Database


Car buffs are fanatical. A group of them has compiled a database of car appearances in films, the Internet Movie Cars Database, to accompany the more famous IMDB.

With screen captures.

So suppose, like me, you once drove a Mercury Marauder, circa 1973. You can now nostalgically learn all the times that make and model of vehicle appeared onscreen.

My car looked exactly like the one below, down to the paint job.

Tarzan and the Rocky Gorge

No soundtrack, but it's still better than 90% of current Hollywood productions.
