I'm only reluctant to get into the details of the movie, because I want there to be some surprises. Isn't an absurdist movie about a killer tire enough? It might not be enough for you, and that's ok. The purpose of this post was to point out to fellow filmspotting fans that there is a really good absurdist movie about a killer tire out there that you might want to try.
From the first scene, this movie was not what I expected. When I heard "killer tire movie", I immediately thought "campy horror movie." I was intrigued enough by that to rent it, knowing that I could turn it off if it sucked, but the trailer promised that it would at least be filmed well. Thirty seconds into it, I thought "Oh, this is an entirely different kind of killer tire movie".
It is filmed well. The desert setting is beautiful, and the low camera angles following the tire provided a new perspective.
The effects were good. I still wonder how they did the rolling tire sequences. The head explosions were just ok.
The story has twists and turns, and I enjoyed them quite a lot.
