Rubbed Out: When Inanimate Objects Go Bad

Chucky, the inanimate star of Child’s Play
I may never play with dolls again.
Here at Criminal Element Headquarters, we’ve been discussing a whole new category of criminals of late: seemingly mundane items that suddenly become deadly. Like Chucky. Or Christine. Or Robert.

Robert? Why, yes. Robert.

For those of you who have not yet had the pleasure of his acquaintance in the movie Rubber, Robert is a sentient, angry, murderous . . . tire. With lust in his heart and psychokinetic powers that allow him to destroy anything and anyone in his path.  He shakes, he trembles, he vibrates…and they explode! Watch this trailer, and you’ll never look at your Goodyears the same way again.

    Is…is that a Turkey in the hotel room at 2:10?

  2. Laura K. Curtis

    Why yes, yes it is. And no, I won’t tell you why he’s sharing a morel rool with a turkey. You’ll have to watch the movie to find out.

    Oooh, I want a morel rool, too! Does that come with gravy? : )

    When I first saw this trailer, I thought it was a spoof. But the movie is very real, and now I suspect even rubber erasers of going for my throat.
