Bonkers, arty horror. I bet Quentin Dupieux is a wild person to have dinner with.

I acknowledge that The Nostalgia Critic isn't to everyone's taste; but he does an occasional series where he films himself and his brother watching a film for the first time to capture their initial uncensored reactions, and then lightly edits that; it's not quite as "LOL ain't I clever" as his regular stuff. The one they for Rubber was fun.

This film went places I didn't expect.

Multiple times.

I often remember bits and wonder if it was all a fever dream.

Little bit of trivia, Quentin Dupieux is also Mr. Oizo of Flat Beat fame.

I saw it at a scary movie fest with a crowd of 'serious' scary movie fans. I loved it, but I loved watching the angry chatter from the audience after the film ended even more.
