The Shiny Car
Big Earl's cigarette habit has caught up with him when he touches the door handle of an old Pontiac GTO and he becomes the victim of a supernatural phenomenon that makes him a witness to the past deaths of two star crossed lovers after an innocent night out at the theatre. More
On a hot Summer night, Big Earl is enjoying a tall can of beer and watching Hitchcock films with his shotgun across his lap when he begins loud booming sounds, like shots out of a canon, coupled with flashing lights that send him back to the days of the war and scare him half to death. He cocks his shotgun and peeks through the blinds, finding nothing out of ordinary, before he opens the front door and creeps outside to get a better look. He discovers what appears to be a 1960's Pontiac GTO in mint condition, except for a blood stained pack of cigarettes, a yellow ribbon with spots of blood on it, and more blood stains on the seats and rear view mirror. Big Earl, being the simple man that he is, decides he could use a new pack of cigarettes and grabs the door handle of the shiny car at which point Earl is bombarded with vivid flashbacks of the gruesome events leading up to the present moment. He is unsure whether he has been transported to the past or is experiencing everything from right where he stands, but he knows that he is the victim of some supernatural phenomenon that has revealed the horrible deaths of two young star crossed lovers the night after leaving the local cinema.
