Stephen King’s MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE
(R, 1986, 98 min)

After a comet causes a radiation storm on Earth, machines come to life and turn against their makers. Holed up in a North Carolina truck stop, a group of survivors must fend for themselves against a mass of homicidal trucks. A diner cook, Bill Robinson (Emilio Estevez), emerges as the unlikely leader of the pack, attempting to find an escape plan for himself and the survivors, who include his boss, Bubba Hendershot (Pat Hingle), and a newlywed couple.

Followed by:

George Romero’s CREEPSHOW
(R, 1982, 120 min)

The most fun you’ll ever have being scared! George Romero and screenwriter Stephen King serve up five delightfully frightful stories inspired by the E.C. comics of yesteryear. Leslie Nielsen, Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, and even King appears in the stories, which include tales of a sinister Father’s Day celebration, a mysterious meteor, seaweed-draped zombies, a monster in a crate, and a cockroach-phobic millionaire.
