Dafuq did I just watch? A movie about a killer tire?!?!

That’s a very unique concept. A good idea if done right. But unfortunatel it was a bit lame.

It had some weird twists, and didn’t make much sense… But it wasn’t trying to.  It was just… weird.

This really could have been an awesome movie. I had higher hopes for it and was let down. They could have really gone somewhere with this.

I was hoping for more of a direct badass parody; something like the movie Machete, but with a rubber tire that violently runs people over, pushes them off cliffs, etc.  But instead it tried to be a slightly pretentious commentary on art in general.

The tire killing people the way it did was the ultimate letdown of the movie and the concept as a whole.

Genre-wise, it’s a bit confusing. It’s comedy disguised as horror. It kind of succeeds at being funny, but not at being great.
