Rating:
R

Maximum Overdrive is a science fiction horror film based on the Stephen King short story "Trucks." As the tail of a rogue comet passes by earth, a strange force gives previous inanimate objects like lawnmowers, tractors, vehicles and electrical appliances a murderous life of their own. ATM machines talk back, soda machines fling cans and cars run without drivers. At the "Dixie Boy" truck stop just outside Wilmington, North Carolina, a group of people are going about their everyday business when several bizarre accidents nearly cost them their lives. Further chaos ensues when the patrons and truckers are held hostage by a group of rampaging 18-wheelers. Bill Robinson (Emilio Estevez) helps rally the terrified hostages as the trucks and a large mounted machine gun prevents their escape. Realizing that cops and anyone who could help are probably dead at the hands of their own machines, the patrons must find a way to save themselves.
