THE CARS THAT ATE PARIS (1974)
Director Peter Weir
THE CARS THAT ATE PARIS is an iconic Australian cult movie directed by Peter Weir. A precursor to the ‘Mad Max’ films, the award for the craziest Australian automobile movie definitely belongs to this 1974 film (released in the US as ‘The Cars That Eat People’). This first feature from veteran director Peter Weir belongs to a pantheon of films focused on poor unfortunates stuck in scary outback towns (think ‘Wake in Fright’) where dark things happen, particularly at night.
‘… nothing can top ‘The Cars That Ate Paris’ for sheer weirdness’ (The Guardian 5/4/2015).
