He portrayed two different characters in Creepshow (1982) and Creepshow 2 (1987). Helmed the 1986 feature Maximum Overdrive, based on his short story Trucks. The film was a critical dud and earned him a Razzie Award nomination as Worst Director. Dedicated The Dark Half - a novel about a writer who ends the life of his pseudonym - to Richard Bachman, which is his pen name. Performed with the Rock Bottom Remainders, a rock band comprised of writers including Dave Barry, Ridley Pearson, Scott Turow, Amy Tan and Simpsons creator Matt Groening. Collaborated with John Mellencamp on his first play, Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, which debuted at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta in 2012. A diehard fan of the Boston Red Sox.
