Formats: DVD / VHS
Released (US): July 25th, 1986

Based on the short story "Trucks" from the Night Shift collection. After a rogue comet which hides the presence of a UFO passes by, trucks and other machines come alive and begin killing people. The story takes place at the Dixie Boy truck stop where honeymooners, Connie (Yeardley Smith) and Curt (John Short) and several other travelers have gone to try to escape the carnage. Short-order cook, Bill Robinson (Emilio Estevez), and the other diners soon find themselves trapped. The restaurant owner, Bubba Hendershot (Pat Hingle) convinces Robinson to try to lead the group against the killing machines. King, who directed the film, also plays a cameo as a man attempting to use an ATM.
