Written and directed by legendary horror author Stephen King, 1986’s Maximum Overdrive is getting new Steelbook Blu-ray release this May.
Featuring music from iconic rock band AC/DC, this release marks the first time the film will be available as a collectible SteelBook.
The official synopsis: Get ready for the ultimate battle of man vs. bloodthirsty machine in this terrifying Stephen King classic! For three horrifying days, the Earth passes through the tail of a mysterious comet. The skies glow an eerie green as humanity waits to see what the fallout will be. But what they imagine is nothing like the nightmare they find — the comet’s magnetic fields cause all the machines on Earth to suddenly come to life and terrorize their human creators in a horrific killing spree. Now, it’s up to a small group of people trapped in a desolate truck stop to defeat the killer machines — or be killed by them!
