Come on guys, this movie is a violent work of art. I love this film because of the over the top violence. Trucks that kill because of the green s**t! Good enough for me. Plus its got AC/DC music. All this movie needed was some tits, and it would have been perfect. Kill, Kill, Kill!!!!!!!!!

I read the short story and was disappointed in the movie translation.  However, when one does NOT expect Gone With The Wind one can have much more fun with a film like this.  Campy, cheezy, should've been riffed by Mike (or Joel) and the bots!

Come on dudes, this movie is priceless.  The violence is so fake and gratuitous that you can't help but laugh.  The cameo by Stephen King was pretty good.  I got a kick out of some guy being killed by a clock.  The movie wasn't supposed to be serious!  It's a comedy diguised as a horror flick.  The AC/DC tunes were an added bonus.  I agree, the steamroller and the pop machine were sheer genius. ^_^

Truly one of the most misguided movies ever made. But, in a strange way, oddly compelling.Kinda like watching neighbors fight, you know you shouldnt, you know its wrong, but you just cant help yourself. As a movie, its a piece of crap. As a guilty pleasure, A MASTERPIECE!!!!!

I love this classic. Great soundtrack by AC/DC. This is a true bad classic from the 80's.

Truly a classic among great horror movies. I truly fell in love with the violence and suspense of this movie, and yet it was such a low quality it provided comedy at the same time. Surely one of the movies i can watch over and over again.

Maybe I need to get a life, but....
1. the reason the cars didn't turn against the people is cuz cars in the 80's weren't electronic. Rhea-M (the comet) was an electromagnetic frequency.
2. yes, the toy truck had the Green Goblin's face, also, inside the truck was a Green Goblin jack-in-a-box.
3. why didn't anyone question what was going on? they all just accepted it, just as they accept we have to breathe to live. "oh, well, there's an alien comet taking over our electronics b/c their planet has no resources left and they need to kill us. RUN!" no questions asked.
4. did you notice they went to save the creepy salesman & then just left him there anyway when they found the kid?
5. this movie shows how naive humans really are, the trucks spared the people's lives in Dixie Boys so they could have someone to feed them, and when the people gave them their last drop of fuel, the trucks attacked. stupid idiots.
6. did anyone notice the jet crashed into the school bus? that was awesome! almost as cool as the steamrolled kid!

With AC/DC , Yeadly Smith, killer electric knives and pin ball games, fat guy on a toilet, how can you wrong.  Take the movie for what it is.  Loved it.

This movie might of dragged on at parts, but it had a little bit of something for every part of me. I love bad movies, Stephen King, ACDC, The Simpsons (Yeardley Smith)- not to mention the amount of stuff I won't see in any other film (steamrolled kids and projectile vending machines: sweeeet)!

This is too awesome for words. Death by electric knife? Soda machine? Toy car? Arcade game? f**king cool!
