I absolutely love Stephen King & everything he's done. Especially Maximum Overdrive. I grew up watching this movie & I'm completely disappointed it hasn't made its way to blu-ray yet! We wore out our DVD. Anxiously awaiting the release date!

I really think that their should be a maximum overdrive 2 movie and also a feature length box office hit movie for a remake of the first maximum overdrive movie and make it even better but still keep the AC/DC song in the movie

This movie is a total guilty pleasure of mine. I can't get enough of it. I really hope we get a S.E. blu-ray at some point. Remastered picture, original box art (with the corpse in the truck grill), deleted/extended scenes (though they are most likely lost, I need the uncut steamroller death!) and most of all a commentary track by Stephen King!

Though the movie was an epic fail, I thank King for nudging AC/DC along into creating their Who Made Who album (LOL).

What I would like to know is how Stephen King found out about my childhood game of hiding from cars passing by on the highway next to our house before the car could "find me" by reaching our property line? I've been wondering this since I saw the movie as a teenager. Stephen King got me hooked when I first opened FIRESTARTER and I've read his work since I was 12! BUT, this movie has got to be one of his best!! I want to watch this movie every Halloween with my own kids. Where can I find my DVD of MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE???? kelrod

I just finished watchin this movie cuz I love it and own it on DVD. One of my favorite parts is when Mr. Stephen King is at the ATM machine and it calls him an asshole!!! He is such a genious!!!!!

This is a great movie, as it does exactly what it sets out to do. Scare and shock us into another situation of otherworldly horror. This time it's the machines we built out to get us, nearly lost in the film becuase it appears as a script at the end is the information that a Russian "weather satellite" with missles shoots down a UFO. We are left to guess that aliens had perhaps figured out a rather novel approach to eliminating the human race. This movie is not The Bridge on the River Kwai and the is no Alec Guinness in the cast. That was not necessary! This is an action horror movie and I will never tire of it. It's 1980"s majesty at it's finest. I love the Who Made Who soundtrack by AC/DC and I would love to someday see a release of the non-album music recorded for some of the scenes, it's great music and sets a chilling tone for the events. We need a Blu-Ray of this one!!

I really liked this movie! It was not perfect or horrible but it was a just right film with a few plot details missing but other than that it was great!

Actually a really enjoybale movie, despite the bad critisism over the years. Some of the acting is a bit hammy, so what. Some of the effects are a bit shoddy, who cares! It's a great movie with a great soundtrack to boot. My only ctitisism is the trailer...Stephen King says that although many people have tried to make movies of his novels, he decided that if you want it done properly you should do it yourself. It sounded very negative to all those directors who actually made fantastic adaptions of his work ;Carrie, Cujo, Christine, Salem's Lot, The Dead Zone...were all hit movies.

I remember the trailer... Stephen said: "It's guaranteed to scare the hell out of you" - this is how I remember him saying it; I could look the trailer up on the Internet but I cherish my memory of it. I was young then and while I was unfamiliar with Mr. King's work, my interest was piqued. As it was when I beheld a classmate holding a copy of Cujo, discussing it with the teacher.

yeah.Stephen showed it to mr.Night of the living dead(George A. Romero).George said he felt nauseated

Awesome movie stephen but i heard rumors about a scene where the kid gets run over by a steam roller and his head exploded with blood everywhere but the MPAA demanded you to remove it was that really true?
Posted By: Dirty - April 15th, 2009 9:05:37 am EDT
it's my all time movie" kick ass that all can say" i'm a truck driver & i have a couple of drivers want to seat in my truck and watch the movie over & over again we never get tired of it love it !!!!do you have it on book?
Posted By: Ms. Diva - March 18th, 2009 11:21:31 am EDT
i really like this movie because its soundtrack is ac/dc and that's is my fav. band of all...thanks stephen king for making that movie...
Posted By: Steve - October 23rd, 2008 4:38:54 pm EDT
Wow, what can I say about this masterpiece from the 80's? This movie isn't really scary, if it actually happened it would be real scary. So the idea King has here is just flat out cool. Come on, a soundtrack by AC/DC? That's cool, over the top cool. I could go on and on about this great flick, it's just... yup, you guessed it...COOL.
