While filming the scene where the ice cream truck flips over the stunt didn't go according to plan. A telephone-pole size beam of wood was placed inside so it would flip end over end but it only flipped once and slid on its roof, right into the camera. Gene Poole, dolly grip on the film, pulled the cameraman out of the way at the last second. -Subsequently, Gene Poole's name is listed on one of the time cards when Bill is putting his card back after being told by Bubba that he must work more hours than he is going to get paid for.

True this movie is stupid. True it is dumb. But I found it to be a guilty pleasure and a lot of fun. I don't understand why this movie is so underrated and why it gets all the negativity it gets.
The plot is excellent. I thought the idea of motor vehicles and other types of machinery being possessed was amazing. There are a lot of scenes of people getting killed by vehicles and other kinds of machinery. If you like that kind of stuff, you will like this movie.
The acting in this movie is so bad it's good. I have met some people that told me the people who acted in this movie did a bad job. When I saw the movie, I just laughed at how bad it was. Like I said, so bad it's good. There is also another category for the acting, so stupid it's funny.
I thought this movie did a very decent job with the pacing (unlike the sixth sense which I thought was very slow paced). There is lots of action, lots of explosions and it does not lag. But before I saw this movie, I was expecting it to be so terrible. But I am glad I saw it. I think anybody who sees this film could enjoy it if it is not taken seriously.
This movie falls into two categories: So stupid it's funny and so bad it's good. If you like those kind of films, you will like Maximum Overdrive. But if you want to see something more serious, I would recommend 8MM or American History X. This movie is a must see for anybody who can enjoy a movie with silly acting and silly dialogue.
