An oddly fascinating jumble of incongruous deviousness, MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE is an 80's horror buffs wet dream come true; Stephen King in full creative control, completely unhinged and lost within his own headspace.
Featuring a soundtrack composed entirely of AC/DC hits and an armada of killer vehicles, King creates one of horrors most duplicitous entries, a film that plays entirely on the precedent that nothing makes sense and anything can happen.
The result is a drug induced nightmare about possessed technology signaling the end of the world as we knew it, akin to the rise of the machines in THE TERMINATOR but with the reckless abandon of MAYHEM. Have you ever wanted to see a movie featuring killer trucks that acted like pack animals hunting prey? If so you need to find a copy of MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE, like yesterday.
