Trucks is a 1997 Canadian and American television Horror film directed by Chris Thomson. It is based on Stephen King's short story "Trucks", which also serves as the source material for the earlier film Maximum Overdrive, the only film directed by King.


In a small American town, the town residents live peacefully in a small community. But one day, trucks mysteriously start to come to life and develop their own minds, but they end up prompting violence, starting to destroy houses and kill people, and the rest of the townspeople have to figure out a way how to destroy them all before they kill all the residents of the town.
