Hail to the King, baby! We’ve been grinding gears, popping clutches and (insert your favorite automotive reference here) for weeks, and now we’re down to the final round. And the same damn horror writer is responsible for both contestants.
Yes, it’s Stephen King’s Christine vs. Stephen King’s Goblin Truck from Maximum Overdrive). Winner take all, hoist the trophy and throw the belt over your shoulder. Or maybe throw the belt in the back seat and move on to more slaughter and destruction.
This round it’s speed (Christine) vs. brawn (Herr Goblin).
