After a comet causes a radiation storm on Earth, machines come to life and turn against their makers. Holed up in the Dixie Boy Truck Stop in North Carolina, a group of survivors must fend for themselves against a mass of homicidal trucks. A diner cook, Bill Robinson (Emilio Estevez), emerges as the unlikely leader of the pack, attempting to find an escape plan for himself and the survivors, who include his boss, Bubba Hendershot (Pat Hingle), and a newlywed couple. This pretty much sums up Maximum Overdrive which is neither a great movie nor a good movie, but it is required viewing nonetheless.
