Are you ready for latex-ploitation? Move over Jason, Freddy and Michael Myers, there’s a new killer on the block – Robert the psychic tyre! Born from the desert sand, this rubber circle of pent up fury begins life modestly, attempting to stay upright and roll in his desired direction. His path blocked by an alien object, he discovers he can easily roll over it. But when Robert’s attempts to squash a beer bottle repeatedly fail, his frustration leads him to telekinetically destroy it with his mind. From then on nothing can stand in Robert’s way – when he witnesses piles of his brethren being burned in scrap yards, he aims his explosive powers at humans. It’s wacky, wild, funny, bloody, absurd and weird, welcome to THE cult fantasy of 2011.
