For 8 days in 1986, the earth passed through the tail of a mysterious Rea-M rogue comet. During that time, machines on earth suddenly come to life and terrorize their human creators. A small group of people in a truck stop, surrounded by "alive" semi-trailers, set out to stop the machines before the machines stop them. Written by

If you listen closely you can hear the ice cream truck's tune is "King of the Road". See more »
When Wanda fires off the M72 during her death scene, it shows it firing while angled upwards. It then cuts to a shot of the rocket hitting a tractor trailer at a far lower (near horizontal) angle. See more »
A classic, I know the acting wasn't all that great, you had to love the AC/DC soundtrack. When you mention Maxiumum Overdrive you think of AC/DC, trucks and machines killing and injuring anyone in their way. I liked this movie and really had nothing bad to say about it, I thought it was a good idea for a horror film and maybe not executed out like it could have been, but still very good and entertaining.
