Arnie Cunningham falls in love with “Christine”, a bright red 1958 Plymouth Fury which has seen much better days.

If you only watch one thing in Supernatural Week and you’ve not seen it for a while, this is the one.
An experiment too far
Another classic film on Tuesday 18, Flatliners (1990), starring Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. Here’s the IMDB take:

The week ends with a contemporary title: It Follows. Here’s the synopsis:
For 19-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe), the fall should be about school, relationships and weekends out at the lake. But after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, or something, is following her. Faced with this burden, Jay and her teenage friends must find a way to escape the horrors that seem to be only a few steps behind…
There’s plenty else to choose from, but try not to watch on your own!
