In the film, the Earth passes through the comet's tail on June 19, 1987. On June 19, 1999, King would be hit, and nearly killed by a distracted truck driver. The number 19 has been prominent in his writing for most of his career. See more »
At the end of the movie Brett walks up and takes a ring from a dead woman's finger leaning his gun up against the side of the car, the gun is tall enough to be seen through the rear driver-side window but in the next shot from the rear of the car the gun is gone. See more »
Silly, Campy, Funny and Highly Entertaining Movie with a Great Soundtrack
When Earth passes through the tail of Rea-M rogue comet, the machines come to life and threaten and kill the mankind. A group of survivors is under siege of fierce trucks in the Dixie Boy truck stop in a gas station and they have to fight to survive.
"Maximum Overdrive" is a silly, campy, funny and highly entertaining movie by Stephen King with a great soundtrack by AC/DC. Despite the awful story, acting and direction, I saw this cult movie again yesterday afternoon and it makes laugh so stupid it is. Fortunately Stephen King has given up directing movies. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Comboio do Terror" ("Convoy of Terror")
