'Maximum Overdrive', 1986.
Directed by Stephen King.

Maximum Overdrive is the first and only film written and directed by best-selling novelist Stephen King. After a freak cosmic occurrence, machines come alive and turn against their human-makers. Described by King himself as a ‘moron movie’, this so-bad-it’s-good sci-fi/horror/comedy is accompanied by with a soundtrack by AC/DC.

Presented as part of the ninth annual Southend-on-Sea Film Festival and the public programme for 'Maximum Overdrive' at Focal Point Gallery.
