Best Tv Movie Movies of 1987 : Christine
10.

Christine

3.3
7.5/10 IMDB

Drug abuse is the subject of Christine, but once again neither the characters nor the approach would be too familiar to viewers. The hero (Vicky Murdock) is a pasty-faced teen in a windbreaker and ill-fitting striped shirt who walks endlessly from one peer-aged client to another during the deserted daytime of the suburbs. Needless to say, from the first shot, Clarke is on the trail: Steadicam shots of Christine walking take up the majority of screen time, with the journeys culminating in affectless shoot-ups in empty homes.

Starring: Vicky Murdock, Kelly George, Mark Harvey, Joanne Mapp, Anthony Smith ..
Directed by: Alan Clarke
Release date: 1987-09-23
