Some things just naturally go together – peas and carrots, dogs and fleas, Hooniverse and Hoons. And to that list you can add AC/DC and movies about mysteriously animated and murderously intended machinery. Maximum Overdrive is just such a movie, and the Aussie rockers just happened to provide the soundtrack to the Stephen King directed effort.
I remember seeing the trailer for this movie – King, all pasty and crazy-eyed, looking straight into the camera and stating that he was going to scare the hell out of you. Well, Maximum Overdrive is more hilarious than horrific, but there’s still a bunch of great scenes which this video compiles, and after all how doesn’t like Hells Bells?
The movie was based on a King short story called Trucks and you can ask yourself what the truck was he thinking after the jump.
