Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive blares onto Blu-ray this Halloween

Stephen King is one of the most prolific writers of all-time, and more than most of his short stories, novellas, and novels have been adapted to the big and small screen over the years. But the man has only tried his hand at directing one of these adaptations once - and that film is the eternally loveable and cheesy-as-all-hell 80's classic MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE.

And today we have word via Vestron Video that the film will finally be plowing and blaring AC/DC on Blu-ray this Halloween! Written and directed by Stephen King, the film is based on his short story "Trucks" and begins

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.
