Crash! (1976)

Group 1 International
Directed by Charles Band
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Full Moon)

Sue Lyon is married to a much older Jose Ferrer, who is wheelchair-bound due to an accident he blames on her. He plots her death, but is foiled by an amulet she buys at a swap meet. Not only does it protect her, it possesses her car which goes on a rampage, all without a driver. She wakes up in a hospital with amnesia. Her doctor and nurse help her uncover her identity. Bizarrely entertaining first effort from the prolific Charles Band. Oozing 70s atmosphere, check out those KISS albums at the drive-in swap meet. The car crashes are repeated (albeit in a hazy glow) in a long flashback sequence when she regains her memory, padding the running time.
