A Movie Called “Rubber”

Sometimes when I walk through a dvd section of a store I like to browse the horror section because

  1. I like to know what is out in horror.
  2. Sometimes I find a movie that I want to watch.
  3. Sometimes I find a movie I can’t believe was actually made.

Number three is what I happened upon today. The movie is called, “Rubber.”

I can’t say what exactly made me pick up this movie except that I thought the one word title was intriguing. As I read the synopsis quietly in my head I realized I had to share it with Squire but I knew that reading it out loud was too implausible for me to do. So I just handed him another copy of it (there were about four copies) and watched his reaction.

This is the synopsis:

Robert is an inanimate car tire that has been abandoned in the desert and suddenly and inexplicably comes to life. As Robert roams the bleak landscape, he discovers that he possesses telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything he wishes without having to move. At first content to wreak havoc on small desert creatures and various lost items, his attention soon turns to humans.

I’m going to try to get him to do an audio on it for my post but for now here is the trailer.

I just might have to watch it now.
