Not sure if everyone knows but me, but Maximum Overdrive is now on Netflix. This movie is one of the most amazingly bizarre stories ever filmed. If you've never seen it, you need to stop what you're doing and watch it now - if nothing for Yeardley Smith's character yelling "CURTIS" every thirty seconds.
I'll admit, this movie kinda creeped me out as a kid. I remember watching it for the first time and then being terrified of the lawn mower.
Just out of curiosity, if this happened today, what machine would you be afraid of?
