Maximum Overdrive

Audio problem: A soda can that is supposed to be full hits the man. When the can hits the ground you can hear that it's empty.

Factual error: The mounted machine gun fires far too many shots for the limited supply of ammo it has in the box attached to it.

David Mercier

Visible crew/equipment: In the closeup shots of the soda cans shooting out, you can very clearly see the the two hoses which are making the sodas shoot out.

Trivia: The Dixie Boy Truck Stop was built strictly for the movie, and was not a functional stop. However, there were so many real truckers trying to pull in, that the film crew had to put up signs directing them not to stop by. After the filming, people got together and revamped it into a working place and tourist attraction, but closed it after a few months of bad business.

Bill Robinson: What the hell are you doing in there?

Question: One of the early posters of this film shows a bearded guy (who is not in the film) coming through a wall crack and holding puppet strings with one hand. Who is this guy supposed to be and what does he represent?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: He does bear a striking resemblance to Stephen King. King was both the writer and director of this movie, and as such, was certainly the guy in charge of all the character's fates and pulling all the strings.
