There are some movies that you have watch on premise alone. Doesn’t matter if the movie’s good or bad, big-budget or woefully independent — as long as the concept is rooted in the strange and unusual, yours truly will be there with bells on. And while I’m not entirely sure what to make of writer/director Quentin Dupieux’s homicidal tire flick “Rubber”, I am strangely enamored with the teaser trailer embedded below. Not only is this disgruntled tire murderous and mobile, it also possesses mysterious telekinetic powers that allows it to stylishly destroy small birds with limited effort. What happens when this circular menace uses its unholy powers on the unsuspecting human population, you ask? I honestly can’t wait to find out.
“Rubber” is currently kicking all sorts of cult ass at Cannes, but hopefully it will make its presence known on DVD later this year. My fingers are crossed. Huge thanks to Horror-Movies.ca for the scoop.
