Toronto After Dark Festival would be a film about a “killer tire” you would probably have laughed. Well, the festival officially wrapped on Friday and I have to say that the one of the best films I saw during the week was an extremely smart B-movie about a killer tire named Robert.
One day a rubber tire, Robert, awakens to the wonders of the world. At first Robert struggles to get, and remain, upwardly mobile. Robert soon learns that he has the ability to destroy insects and plastic bottles by simply rolling over them. As Robert becomes more self-aware he begins to blowup objects with his mind. Drunk with power Robert hits the open road destroying everything in his path.
