Maximum Overdrive Turns 30 Today!

07/25/1986:

Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive is released in theaters.

The film was written and directed by King, his directorial debut. It is loosely based on King’s short story ‘Trucks’. The film starred Emilio Estevez and had a fucking killer soundtrack from metal legends AC/DC. The film was considered to be a bomb at the box office, but has since left a mark on the horror community and has achieved cult status. Still one of my favorite of King’s adaptations.

Which of Kings’ films is your favorite?

Hey there boils and ghouls! My love of horror films came on a dark and stormy night.... ....Truthfully, it probably happened in 1980-something during a sunny day when I was 5 or 6. That movie was JAWS. I had never been so terrified to go swimming and I live in a land-locked state! I have been a Horror Hound ever since. Having seen hundreds of films, some good and some downright dreadful, my love for horror cinema has grown stronger than ever! I have a Sci-Fi nerd wife, which allows us to share movies with each other(while she puts up with MOST of my movies). A couple of my favorite directors are Lucio Fulci and John Carpenter. Contributing here at T.H.S and being able to work with these other folks will be a treat I look forward to. I will share secrets after a few drinks and I also enjoy long romantic walks in dimly-lit cemeteries. My fave top 5 films are: 1)Dawn Of The Dead (Original) 2)The Thing (Carpenter's Remake) 3)Zombie 4)Texas Chainsaw Massacre (O.G.) 5)Friday the 13th pt IV: The Final Chapter Stay Scared! -ZombiSurvivor
