Maximum Overdrive review

Maximum Overdrive
Vestron Video Collector’s Series
Blu-ray
Written and directed by Stephen King
Starring Emilio Estevez, Pat Hingle, Laura Harrington, Yeardley Smith, John Short
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release Date: October 23, 2018

Maximum Overdrive marked the directorial debut of the most successful horror author of all time, Stephen King. The film and King’s direction were widely panned to the tune of 24% on Metacritic and a measly 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Time has been kind however, as the film built a cult following over the years and now there’s a brand new collector’s edition Blu-ray out by Vestron Video.

Based on King’s short story “Trucks,” Maximum Overdrive is about a rag tag group of survivors battling sentient machines sprung to life due to a mysterious comet. While no one will confuse this with an Oscar-winning classic, or even a top King adaptation, there is a certain charm about this weird movie.

James McAvoy Image Marks IT: Chapter Two Production Start

‘IT: Chapter Two’ Eyes Bill Hader and James McAvoy

Bill Hader and James McAvoy in IT Chapter 2

We were always going to go back to Derry, Maine, to revisit the sewer-scuttling terror known as Pennywise in IT: Chapter Two. After the success of the first IT, Warner Bros. made it a priority to get a sequel out. Since this was going to take place years after the events of the first movie, director Andy Muschietti would have to recast with adult actors. And that didn’t stop any of us from creating our very own dream cast.

Currently, Jessica Chastain is the only one confirmed for IT: Chapter Two. She would reunite with Muschietti after they worked together on Mama. And now you can add two more.

According to new reports, Bill Hader and James McAvoy are currently in talks to star in IT: Chapter Two. More on the story here below.
