''Rubber'' is a 2010 horror-comedy about an abandoned car tire named Robert who comes to life for [[ArcWords no reason]] and roams the desert. After spending some time rolling about and crushing insects, Robert discovers he has powerful telekinetic abilities that he uses to annihilate crows, rabbits, and eventually human beings. All the while, a group of spectators watch the events through binoculars as if viewing a film.

** Many of the spectators. [[spoiler: It doesn't save them.]]
** The Lieutenant possibly qualifies as DangerouslyGenreSavvy. [[spoiler: The final Spectator thinks he's such, too. Turns out, not really.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheNeedless: The wheelchair spectator doesn't eat any of the poisoned food, doesn't seem to have brought food of his own, but over a several day stay in the desert never complains of being hungry.


Added DiffLines:

* VideoCredits: The closing credits show each of the cast members in action as their character... including Robert.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The film was originally about cubes from outer space, but director Quentin Dupieux was displeased with the F/X tests, and chose instead to make it about a killer tire.
