No, not another rant about Maximum Overdrive.
Now, there’s some debate as to whether or not a movie can qualify as “worst movie ever” if it tries to be bad–and this movie tries to be bad, really, really hard. It’s a parody of everything from Plan 9 from Outer Space to Creature from the Black Lagoon, and it manages to throw in every single science-fiction/horror cliche known to man. The script allegedly took five days to write, and as near as I can tell, the other four days were spent making the dialog worse–nobody, but nobody, gets dialog that awful on the first go-round.
“We gave up messes eons of your Earth years ago.”
“If I wanted a safe life, I wouldn’t have married a man who studies rocks for a living!”
If you like that kindof thing, it’s the kind of thing you’ll like.
