Decades of Horror 1980s Episode 140 â€“ Maximum Overdrive (1986)Filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina, Maximum Overdrive brought not only the Stephen King short story Trucks to the big screen but also had the maestroÂ himself behind the wheel providing the screenplay and sitting in the director’s chair. While the film tanked at the box office upon its 1986 release, it has garnered a cult following over the years with the “Green Goblin” truck becoming iconic, the bombastic AC/DC soundtrack, and the legendary rumors of on-set turmoil & chaos. The cast includesÂ Emilio Estevez, Pat Hingle, and Laura Harrington. Christopher G. Moore and Dave Dreher revisit the classic/no-so-classic monster-piece recounting the time they saw the film for the first time and how it holds up today. They discuss its path to becoming aÂ cult classic and the troubles and rumors along the way. The cast and the effects are examined along with the conflicting internal logic the film sometimes follows. It’s all here for a special episode demanded by the DoH listeners: Maximum Overdrive.
