It’s like “Predator” with Arnold Schwarzenegger, complete with heat-seeking “Predator”-cam, but instead of a killer alien hunter from outer space, it’s a killer car. Hopefully it wasn’t made in Detroit. God knows that industry doesn’t need anymore bad press. Starring Oded Fehr from “The Mummy” films, and directed by Frenchman Eric Valette, who once upon a time directed “Maléfique” and the remake of “One Missed Call”. I guess you could say his career isn’t exactly hitting on all cylinders. (See what I did there?)
In tradition of such “car from Hell” films as Christine, The Car, and Maximum Overdrive, Super Hybrid has been dubbed “a fun monster movie” (Blueprint Review.) From the producer of Punisher: War Zones and the director of One Missed Call comes the next generation in killer car movies with Super Hybrid, a high-speed thriller pitting man against the ultimate driving massacre machine! Anchor Bay Entertainment releases the parking brake with the August 23rd Blu-ray™ and DVD release.
Late one night, a mysterious car is brought into the Chicago police impound garage after a deadly traffic accident. The on-call mechanics soon discover the car has a mind of its own. With hundreds of horsepower and two tons of reinforced steel at its command, it’s a seemingly unstoppable killing machine capable of outrunning — and outwitting — humans.
Co-starring Shannon Beckner, Ryan Kennedy, and Melanie Papalia. The film was at one point known as “Hybrid”, but Anchor Bay Entertainment apparently thinks tacking a “Super” to the title made it more, you know, super-y. Works for me.
