I just watched the clip and had the same thought I had watching the movie years ago. "How much would you have loved to be one of the grips who got to throw cans at a mob of fleeing softball players?"

Stephan King is a master of what he does, which is writing the world's best horror novels.
sorry, please shoot me down but just want to raise this minor point that has nothing to do with the movie... you mis-spelt "Stephan King" ... should be spelt "H. P. Lovecraft"...

He left the Epilog ,Wherein it states a armed,killer satellite(it may say whose) shoots down a UFO that was hidden in the comets trail and that shortly after ,the machines go back to being normal.

Hi there!

Maybe somebody has mentioned this by now, but the comet that turns big machines murderous was totally ripped off from Killdozer.  Which can be watched on YouTube, search under "Killdozer 1974".
both were King's stories, so there's no need to fret. Wink

yeah no.

Yeah, that looks exactly like the Green Goblin. SPeaking of Spider-man and the clone saga. They should just issue an apology for the last three years of horrible comics and maybe just bring in Ben Reilly again. Those Ben Reilly solo books weren't too bad.

This was one of the first bad movies I ever watched.  I bought the DVD from the $5 bin at Wal-Mart and I knew, from that moment onward, that I was destined to watch cheesy movies.  Best movie ever!

I have always found Maximum Overdrive to be a great late night movie to watch and I'm not afraid to say it. I remember watching it on TNT back in the day. What's not to love? AC/DC soundtrack...Directed by Stephen King...Killer coke machines.......I AM In!   

For true fans of the film, you got to check out the Monstervision/Joe Bob Briggs episode of this, it makes the movie 25% better

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
