Learn Who Made Who With Vestron Collector's Series' New Blu-ray of MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE!


MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE may not be the greatest thing to bear Stephen King's name, but the film does have two things going for it: It's the ONLY movie ever directed by King (who was on a steady diet of cocaine at the time) and the only film (to my knowledge) that has an all AC/DC soundtrack. For years, this bad boy was only available on VHS or DVD, but Stephen King's ridiculous tale of mankind's machines retaliating against their creators is finally getting the love it deserves!

Synopsis: Get ready for the ultimate battle of man vs. bloodthirsty machine in this terrifying Stephen King classic! For three horrifying days, the Earth passes through the tail of a mysterious comet. The skies glow an eerie green as humanity waits to see what the fallout will be. But what they imagine is nothing like the nightmare the find - the comet's magnetic fields cause all the machines on Earth to suddenly come to life and terrorize their human creators in a horrific killing spree. Now, it's up to a small group of people trapped in a desolate truck stop to defeat the killer machines - or be killed by them!
