Super Hybrid (2011) – By Brian Morton

If you didn’t know it by now, I’m a big fan of car movies. Anything with a car, either as a central piece or the bad guy and I’m with you. So, I was pretty excited with the new movie from Anchor Bay, Super Hybrid (hitting shelves August 23), dropped into my inbox. And, I have to admit, I was pleased.

The story here is (naturally) about a killer car. The car can change its shape and lure people to it, and then it eats them! It’s like Christine, but with a bigger appetite. But, when all is revealed, the car might not be a car at all, but a monster in car form…yes, it’s very SyFy Channel, but, trust me, it’s worth it.

With top shelf acting and pretty good special effects, Super Hybrid isn’t what I’d call an instant classic. It’s more of a drive-in movie, and that’s just fine with me, it’s fun, it’s entertaining, it’s got some thrills, some chills and it’s a great way to spend an evening!

I’m giving Super Hybrid 3 1/2 out of 4 cigars, it’s not for everyone, but if you can get past the sheer camp of a people-eating car, then you’ll love Super Hybrid. Put this in your tank by heading over to http://www.anchorbayent.com.
