I just read the short story Trucks, and found out there is a movie based on it. Has anyone seen it, and is it worth watching?

Here's a short discussion about it. Search the forum or use Google for more information.

There are actually 2 movies made from the story. Maximum overdrive and trucks. I prefer Trucks personally but at the time Maximum Overdrive was made(I was in my late teens early 20's) I did enjoy it

Trucks is one of THE worst movies I have ever seen.
Look, Maximum Overdrive is a bad movie, too, but it's one of those bad movies that is a heck of a lot of fun to watch. Trucks is just plain bad.

I enjoyed Maximum Overdrive when it was released. Not sure how it has stood up to the passing of time and when I saw it I was a self confessed King junkie.
I would check it out though as it was even directed by the man himself.

Trucks is a cheap TV movie, and the only good thing about it is the scene with the mailman.

I've heard of it but I don't think I've seen it.

I have not seen the movie trucks but I love maximum overdrive. Stephen King had to go to court over the movie because it was so grusome that the movie was going to be rated xxx. so he had to cut abunch out

I tried to watch Trucks about a week ago, but it didn't held my attention. For me, it's a bad movie.
I have read the short story once, and, although it was a long time ago, I still remember that this story impressed me. I liked the story. But I absolutely don't like the movie!

I watched it a while back on Chiller channel. It was not near as good as Maximum Overdrive. But that happens to be a favorite of mine anyway. Can not figure out while they don't put it on DVD or ever show it on tv.
I wish I had the money, I would start a movie channel strictly devoted to late 70s and 80s movies. Like MO, Night of the Comet, and so many others that never get shown on tv.

They're both so cheesy they could trigger an attack in someone who's lactose intolerant-but are a ton of fun if you're looking for campy entertainment-coz celluloid genius they ain't...:biggrin2:

sometimes the stories are alot more detailed then the movies. I like parts of each movie I guess. My son loves Maxium Overdrive and hates Trucks. so I guess it is all a personal choice.

I've heard of Trucks but never bothered actually watching it. The thought that it was made for television makes me not want to watch it...but I probably will, inevitably. Maximum Overdrive was good, though.

i have never heard of Trucks...will someone please tell me what its about? :confused:

I have seen both Maxium overdrive and Trucks. But were good but Maxium Overdrive became my choice of the two. But check them both out and let me know your choice.

I've read the short story, seen both Maximum Overdrive and Trucks. I like 'em. I have to side with M.O. because of the menacing White Western Star, aka the goblin and Happy Toyz (btw, White was part of the brand name, nothing to do with the color). But both WS rigs did their part and terrorized the humans they held captive.

I love Maximum Overdrive, but found Trucks to be a complete waste of time. Both are bad movies, but Maximum Overdrive is a hell of a lot of fun, whereas Trucks is just boring. Not an AC/DC song in sight...
