Quentin Dupieux’s (new interview) incredible art piece Rubber (review), a film that tells the unlikely story of a murderous tire (yes, a tire) with terrifying telepathic powers, is now available on VOD with a limited theatrical run slated for April 1 from Magnet.
If you’re “tired” of the expected, Rubber is the story of Robert, an inanimate 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, resulting in the most gory vehicular-related mayhem inflicted on screen by an “inanimate” object since Christine.
