Blu-ray Review: Maximum Overdrive (Vestron Video Collector’s Series)

Maximum Overdrive
Vestron Video Collector’s Series
Written and directed by Stephen King
Starring Emilio Estevez, Pat Hingle, Laura Harrington, Yeardley Smith, John Short
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release Date: October 23, 2018

Maximum Overdrive marked the directorial debut of the most successful horror author of all time, Stephen King. The film and King’s direction were widely panned to the tune of 24% on Metacritic and a measly 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Time has been kind however, as the film built a cult following over the years and now there’s a brand new collector’s edition Blu-ray out by Vestron Video.

Based on King’s short story “Trucks,” Maximum Overdrive is about a rag tag group of survivors battling sentient machines sprung to life due to a mysterious comet. While no one will confuse this with an Oscar-winning classic, or even a top King adaptation, there is a certain charm about this weird movie.

Happy Birthday Stephen King! Encore Celebrates With September Marathon!
  |  @   |  

Stephen King‘s birthday is September 21st, but it’s the fans who will receive gifts! Encore TV will show one Stephen King movie a night (sometimes one part a night) through September 30th, and on Mr. King’s actual birthday there will be an all-day marathon starting at 8AM.

Check out the full schedule here below.

It is not every Stephen King movie and there are some notable ones missing, but if every single one was my favorite, I would not leave the house in September at all! You do get to enjoy The Running Man with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the worst game show ever, and Secret Window with Johnny Depp as an author accused of plagiarism and then terrorized for it by an excellent John Turturro. Salem’s Lot scared the crap out of me as a kid. Why was I watching Salem’s Lot as a kid? Oh yeah — it was 1979.

Happy Australia Day: Looking Back On Aussie Music From 1986

I thought that for this Australia Day (which is celebrated every January 26 down under), I’d link up with our recent Geeks of Doom theme of celebrating the 25th anniversary of some of the music and albums released during 1986. That year was a big one for Australian artists, with some key releases stamping their mark on the history of the Aussie music industry and the rock scene down under.

From Metal to Pop, from Traditional Alternative to Post-Punk, join me in a look back at some of the biggest and more memorable music releases from Australia 25 years ago in 1986.
