Maximum Overdrive

A group of people try to survive when machines start to come alive and become homicidal.

After a comet causes a radiation storm on Earth, machines come to life and turn against their makers. Holed up in a North Carolina truck stop, a group of survivors must fend for themselves against a mass of homicidal trucks. A diner cook, Bill Robinson (Emilio Estevez), emerges as the unlikely leader of the pack, attempting to find an escape plan for himself and the survivors, who include his boss, Bubba Hendershot (Pat Hingle), and a newlywed couple.

"King is an expert at mixing horror and humor and he does a nice job of creating some deliciously macabre comic moments." -Los Angeles Times

The screenplay was inspired by and loosely based on King's short story "Trucks" and is King's only directorial effort.

Maximum Overdrive is a silly, campy, funny and highly entertaining movie with a great soundtrack by AC/DC.
