...I learned from the movie Maximum Overdrive. For example:

- An ATM machine printing the word "asshole" on its screen over and over again is really pretty funny.

- If you're ever attacked by a killer gasoline nozzle that's been animated by sinister forces in the tail of a comet, step back. The hose is only, like, six feet long or something.

- Same goes for animated killer carving knives. They stop attacking when they reach the end of the power cord. Evil extraterrestrial animating forces can make knobs and levers move on their own, but can't make the blade of a knife move without electricity. Or something.

- The redneck owners of out-of-the-way diners can always be counted on to have a cache of weapons in the basement.

- Coca-Cola is bad for you. Especially when fired at you from a vengeful vending machine.

- Don't let Stephen King direct anything.

And most importantly:

- If you're a truck driver in a Stephen King horror flick, it's never, never, never a good idea to put a gigantic, demonic Green Goblin face on the front of your semi rig.

Heresy! Maximum Overdrive is one of the finest pieces of modern cinema* EVER MADE!!!

I really did enjoy the movie. Of course, any movie that has machines slaughtering stupid humans appeals to me. As a cautionary tale, you in particular should take note. ;-)

Hey, I maybe the Green Goblin Truck should post on NUKM. :-)

*(that has Emilio Estevez and a psychotic tractor-trailer)

I had that very thought, but I can't find a pic of that truck anywhere. So much for the Internet as the repository of all human knowledge!

I must agree
this movie was needed to launch the legendary career of Emilio Estevez.... This paved the way for Great movies like.... Jonny Freedom? I think its called.. with Demi more..And don't EVER forget the incredible "Repo Man"...
