The cars that show up most often in horror movies


Written by:

From epic car chases to lone killers in the rearview mirror, cars feature heavily in Hollywood horror movies. But have you ever stopped to think about the pattern of which cars you see most often on the big screen?

According to car insurance company Uswitch, some cars appear far more often in horror movies than others. After drawing up a shortlist of some 152,303 popular U.S. horror movies using data from Internet Movie Cars Database, analysts discovered that the Ford Crown Victoria is the most commonly used car in Hollywood’s horror movies. Appearing in some 1,514 feature films, you might recall this model from ‘Children of the Corn Two: The Final’ (1993), ‘Bright’ (2017) and ‘The Invisible Man’ (2020).

Other popular car choices include the Ford Mustang, appearing in 710 movies, followed by the Chevrolet Caprice with 606 movies, Chevrolet Impala with 594 movies and the Jeep Cherokee, as seen in 362 movies.
