Rated R · 82 minutes · 2010

Comedy, Horror
In what is one of the strangest movies I have ever seen, a tire comes to life in a desert landscape, starts rolling around, and kills animals and people in its path with telepathic powers. A bunch of people, including Wings Hauser, observe the tire’s destructive path from afar through binoculars, critiquing its every move. When the tire fixates on a beautiful woman (Roxane Mesquida), a philosophical policeman realizes he can trap and kill the tire. Honestly, I can’t believe I just wrote that synopsis. Credit writer-director Quentin Dupieux for coming up with a true original, something you have never seen before and will never see again. The movie is quite bloody and has a lot in common with David Cronenberg’s Scanners. (A whole lot of heads blow up.) Some might find Rubber too strange to tolerate, but I ate it up.

Portland Mercury More Dud Than Stud Killer-tire movie Rubber should be more fun than it is. by Courtney Ferguson 04/14/2011
Charleston City Paper Rubber does not live up to its creepy expectations

On the surface, Rubber seems like an homage to Roger Corman B-movies, but as it progresses, it becomes apparent that it is something else.
