I invited all my friends over to my house for a Rubber party and no one came. In retrospect, I don’t think this is due to my lack of popularity or my poor hygiene, but I am working on those just in case. Rather, I feel the attendance issues were due to a misunderstanding — I should have been more specific that this was for a screening of the new independent “horror” movie Rubber, about a killer tire. Yes, that some, old, tired story.
No joke, the movie follows a discarded tire that becomes self-aware in the desert. It learns to walk — er, roll, rather — and forages for sustenance. It becomes vindictive, murdering harmless rabbitswith its telekinetic powers that allows it to make things heads explode. A careless driver runs the tire off the road, and then the tire kills him. The tire begins to stalk a pretty girl (Roxane Mesquida). The tire even gets a hotel room and watches hula girls on TV. It takes a shower. It kills the cleaning lady who throws him out. It flashes back to its origins. There’s a massive tire-hunt for this killer as the spree spreads. (continue reading…)
Previously I’d blogged on an upcoming horror film called “Rubber” about a killer tire that makes people’s heads explode. It’s a cult indy film, so there was no telling when it would be available to us lowly residents of Charlotte, NC. But it has come to attention that HDNet — Mark Cuban’s premium cable channel, which I subscribe — is airing Rubber before it’s in theaters.

Ladies and gentlemen, in 2011 SnarkCriticPop.com is on a mission. We are looking for the greatest, most outlandish, most awesometacular movie monsters ever conceived. In 2010 we found the likes of Mega Piranhas, Sharktopus, DinoSharks, and killer gingerbread cookies. Not good enough.
And what better way to start this nigh mythical quest than Rubber, about a tire that comes alive and realizes it can make peoples heads explode. The description from Wikipedia:
Rubber is a 2010 French horror comedy film about a tyre that comes to life and kills people with its psychic powers. It was directed and written by Quentin Dupieux. The film was shown at the Cannes Film festival where it had negative critical reception. Reviews outside of Cannes have been more positive.
Don’t believe me? Seeing is believing, my well worn friends. Behold the trailer. Warning – violent and wonderfully absurd content: (continue reading…)
