Stephen King’s only stint in the director’s chair was deemed an unqualified disaster by many, not least the man himself, who flippantly described it as a ‘moron movie.’ Looking back now, King’s unruly adaptation of his short story Trucks, about a army of homicidal lorries, is a hell of a lot of fun. Wickedly amusing, unapologetically campy, and with a killer AC/DC soundtrack, this is a true cult classic.
