In Maximum Overdrive they talk about going to an island named Haven where there are no cars. In 2010 on Syfy a TV show called Haven premiered like, Maximum Overdrive, it too is based on Kings work and in the season 2 episode "Love Machine" cars and boats are seen coming to life attacking humans much like they did in Maximum Overdrive.

Get sick of movies with intricate plots, outstanding acting, and multiple Academy Award nominations? Then go grab Maximum Overdrive! 90 minutes of mindless truck attacks, rocket launchers and A STEAM ROLLER RUNNING OVER A LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYER!!! Now, most readers are probably thinking that this is a pretty sick review, but keep in mind that this is A MOVIE. Not real life. Even with all of this in mind, I think it is fair to say that Stephen King did a fair job with the directing. It's by no means fantastic, but it is far better done than most Cult Classic, B-flicks. Happy watching!
