    This movie is deserving of an unrated bluray release. We love it! The edits detract from the film. Bravo Mr. King. Please put your hat in the ring again. If you look at other movies from this golden era of horror, Maximum Overdrive defines the era along with Evil Dead, Videodrome, Re-Animator and others. Please give us the gore that made Romero puke.

    Ga! We were all 28 years younger when this movie came out! I liked it - "Do Stephen King right" - oh yeah, baby!

    Yes indeed! This needs a BluRay release badly.

    It's one of those movies that I've gotta watch if I stumble across it on late-night cable.. I'm a Emilio Estevez fan (mostly because of "Repo Man"), and the soundtrack is perfect for such a campy movie.

    I remember listening to the soundtrack for hours, during our road-trips back in college while staring out the window of the bus/van at the trucks..

    Not sure I've seen this. Parts I have, but the whole thing, I don't think so.

    I remember watching this one over and over back in the day. I'm just going to have to have myself a SK film marathon soon. Haven't done that in a long long time. This pesky thing called life keeps getting in my way.

    Hi, I agree that Maximum Overdrive is underrated. Stephen King did a good job of expanding the Trucks short story into a feature length.
    I just found out a TV movie was made of Trucks too! Trucks (TV Movie 1997) - IMDb

    The phrase when she enquired after some other fella - "Is he dead?!" made me laugh so hard! :rofl:
