Episode 14 - No Reason

Episode 14 delves into the world of inanimate objects that become living vessels of evil as we focus on 1974's Killdozer and 2010's Rubber. Killdozer was a TV movie where a hulking D9 Bulldozer mysteriously starts to stalk the isolated team of workers on a tiny island off the coast of Africa. Starring the stoic Clint Walker and a team of talented character actors, Killdozer works surprisingly well and develops real tension as the men fall one by one. Rubber takes more of an art-school mentality to the subject of a standard car tire that comes to life for "no reason" and begins rampaging across the southwest on psychokinetic killing spree. Rubber uses the idea of a framing metafiction to great effect and really messes with the viewers minds. We heartily recommend both of these and would love to hear what you think.

The conversation detours to talk about remakes/reboots in general and...
