Mark’s Halloween Horror Countdown #13

Nordic Media > Blog > Mark’s Halloween Horror Countdown #13

Here’s the next installment of my top 31 horror films since 2000.

#13 Rubber Johnny (2006)
As a fan of Drill and Base musical auteur Aphex Twin, I knew how messed up his videos were, especially Window Licker and Come to Daddy, which are terrifying in their own right. The director of those videos is Chris Cunningham who is a master visionary and skilled effects technician who knows how to unnerve the viewer in a deep, subversive way. I stumbled across the Rubber Johnny website ten years ago. At the time, only the trailer was available, but you could order a copy. After seeing the trailer, I immediately ordered a copy, cuz it scared the shaving cream out of me. I still play it for those I want to toy with, to see how they react going into the experience blind.

Instead of a plot synapses, because there isn’t one, I’ll just copy what it says on the back of the DVD case, “Johnny is a hyperactive shape-shifting mutant child kept locked away in a basement with only his feverish imagination and his terrified dog for company. He finds ways to amuse himself in the dark.”

This is a short film, so I’m cheating a bit, but I had to include it because it really got me. It is so weird and brazenly creepy. If Chris Cunningham would direct a feature film, I could die a happy man. But for now, I’ll have to live with Rubber Johnny, wait no, I could never, ever live with that freak-show.

Check out the trailer below and be sure to tune in tomorrow for #12.

And here’s the link to the film in its entirety.

You gotta love winter. I love the seasonal change, it's stark beauty. And at least there's no bloody mosquitos!

I'm starting to think batman just finds any reason to slap robin.

I'm looking out my window right now at the lovely snow :P

Loving Edmonton in summer is one thing, freezing in Winter is quite another. NOPE

Isla and Marliss! Hooray for snow.

It's a blue cape and hood Lisa Carson

It hardly even snows here.
