It’s Monday! And that means it’s time that “you shall enjoy being horrified to the point of sheer panic” with a new horror trailer culled from the musty, murky depths of the super spooky YouTube.
Here’s a couple of quick things I learned about MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE (1986) thanks to Wikipedia:
“In a 2002 interview for the book Hollywood’s Stephen King, King stated that he was ‘coked out of [his] mind all through its production, and [he] really didn’t know what [he] was doing.'”
“A radio-controlled lawnmower used in a scene went out of control and struck a block of wood used as a camera support, shooting out wood splinters which injured the director of photography, Armando Nannuzzi. As a result of this incident, Nannuzzi lost an eye. Nannuzzi sued Stephen King on February 18, 1987 for $18 million in damages due to unsafe working practices. The suit was settled out of court.“
Well, you know what they say…
Anyway, I’m sure it’s no surprise to y’all that I actually like MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE…and that Green Goblin truck was pretty boss.
Of course we all know that AC/DC was King’s favorite band and that he used them exclusively for the soundtrack.
