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.
