Maximum Overdrive (25-Jul-1986)

Director: Stephen King

Writer: Stephen King

From short story: Trucks by Stephen King

Keywords: Sci-Fi/Horror

An unknown force causes machines to turn homicidal. No holds barred; witness a steam roller running over an innocent Little League player. Set to an AC/DC soundtrack, this is both Stephen King's directorial debut and finale, as nobody would permit him to direct anything after this. Cult classic which some find a guilty pleasure, though at no point do you realize it is not a bad movie.
