Review: Rubber (DVD)

By DeadVida

It’s a story as old as time…a drifter comes to town, spots a pretty lady, and kills a bunch of people. Except in this case the killer is a psychokinetic tire. Yes, a tire.

Not only is the tire self-aware, so is the rest of the movie, which comes complete with its own audience. Lt. Chad is the bridge between the audience and the audience-audience and he cites that movies often offer no reason and that, “the film you are about to see today is an homage to the ‘no reason’ - that most powerful element of style.”

Is this an art house film wearing horror movie clothing? Is it a horror movie that breaks conventional horror movie rules? It doesn’t really matter; it is the only film with a serial killing tire and that alone makes it worth watching.
