Review of Maximum Overdrive (1986)

Stephen King is better known for writing classic horror/thriller novels that have been adapted into the big screen. So went it came down for him to direct a feature based on one of his short stories, fans were pretty stoked. But then "Maximum Overdrive" hit theaters and critics and audiences were not pleased with how the end result turned out. King eventually revealed in an interview that he was going through a nasty cocaine addiction at the time during shooting and declared this film as a "moron movie". Needless to say, this flick is pretty awful but it is entertainingly bad. There are a bunch of unintentionally humorous moments ranging from the death scenes as well as the subpar acting from the likes of Emilio Estevez and Yeardley Smith (Lisa Simpson herself). It is no wonder that King hasn't directed another movie ever since and writing is mainly the best thing that he is good at. Nonetheless, it's best you would just avoid it and instead watch clips from the movie just to see what on Earth things were going on.
