His books and short stories have been adapted into countless movies, but there’s only one directed by Stephen King himself: Maximum Overdrive. Based on his short story “Trucks”, this 1986 release features some of the most Youtube-ready deaths of all time (steamroller, anyone?), plus a bitchin’ AC/DC soundtrack. It’s been a cable/VHS favorite for years, but if you live in Los Angeles, you can experience it on the big screen in glorious 35mm! Our own BC hosts a rare screening of King’s opus at the New Beverly Cinema on Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles, this Saturday, September 18th, at 11:59 PM. Tickets are 7 bucks cash at the door, or online at BrownPaperTickets. BC will have a few DVDs to give away as well, so get there on time! See you there!
Check out the amazing trailer, which features King talking directly to the audience.
