Director – Stephen King
Starring – Emilio Estevez, Pat Hingle, Laura Harrington, Yeardley Smith
What’s it all about? – Machines come to life and a group of random folk trapped at a truck stop by their own trucks, attempt to defeat the machines and make their escape. It’s a very silly film.
Notes & Scribbles
- While it was pretty creepy, I did think the Green Goblin on the front of the toy truck was pretty cool.
- Loved the AC/DC soundtrack (and the AC/DC van on the bridge). Apparently King is a big fan.
- Lisa Simpson in a horror film!
- It didn’t take Emilio and the girl long to get it on, despite the obvious danger. Maybe they just needed to distract themselves for a wee while? Or maybe Emilio thought ‘What would Charlie do?’
- Pat Hingle calling everyone Bubba got quite tiresome very quickly.
- Apparently King was coked out of his nut while directing this. Explains a lot!
