1970s Movie with a haunted car

This movie is not “The Car”.

The movie has a black haunted car which looks like something from the 1950s, and it is set in the Pacific Northwest I think.  I remember two scenes, one where there are some totem poles and a sacred circle drawn by a shaman the car can’t enter, and in the other scene, the car crashes and catches fire, and a police officer opens the door to save the driver but it’s just sticky black goo.  Scared the crap out of me as a little kid.

    1. Awesome! Yes, that’s it. How in the world did you figure that out!

      I read through some of the reviews. So funny how a movie that scared the crap out of me when I was way too little to be watching them seem like such silly nonsense now! But nowi remember the ghost floating outside the window that Salem’s Lot stole a few years later, the rope bridge, etc.


      1. You are very welcome, Pete! I saw this movie when it was first released (Jan-Michael Vincent!) and have seen it about 5 or 6 more times. Yeah, perhaps a little silly now, but I think it influenced quite a few horror movies since then as well.
