The Darkling
(2000) TV
F. Murray Abraham, Aidan Gillian
A truly awful film, but for a car-nut worth watching just for a laugh! The films hero (a highly skilled car restorer possessed by the Devilish "Darkling"-something that looks like an 18 month tot in a bird cage) has the opportunity to restore the long lost Jimmy Dean Spyder)!! Now, here's where the fun begins because rather than get an old 550 kit and smash it up a bit, the films producers deemed that a Karmann Ghia ragtop would suffice!!!!!!!!! Grab a video and have a look-it's absolutely cr*p! Turkey factor: 9/10 (By SpyderOwners Member - John S.) Neither
