  2. Rubber Johnny documents a 16-year-old, inbred mutant's solitary existence, locked in a pitch-black basement by his ashamed parents. They are TV addict rednecks who occasionally feed Johnny and yell at him for making noise. Johnny's only company in the basement is his little dog. His dog's I.Q. far outstrips Johnny's, who is a completely insane, bi-polar imbecile.

    Featuring music by Aphex Twin

  5. It's actually just a movie that's suppose to look like a documentary. Like spinal tap.


    It's Apex twin and good special rubber effects...

  8. Its a 6 minute film that Chris Cunningham made featuring music by Aphex twin. The artwork that came with the dvd is far more disturbing then the actual video! :eek:
    Check out some of his other videos . I think he is one of the best out there.

    It was more like a music video than a film to me.

    I enjoyed it. Before I knew who was involved I was thinking "Richard D. James meets David Lynch." Turns out it was just "Richard D. James meets Chris Cunningham."

  10. That was neat. The part that was most disturbing to me was when they did the "extreme closeups" and you saw guts and fluids.

    shudder.

    I agree with every word of that post except "brad cook."

    I thought it was stupid. I don't get the whole snorting of the huge line of cocaine... it was just stupid. All my friends were about to poop there pants, I just kinda laughed at it.

    Can I be hardcore NOW?!

  13. Ok, I dug around, and yes, thisis a music video / creepout short by Chris Cummingham, who has done shorts for Aphex and Bjork and the like. He is quite a visionnary filmaker, very inventive (does anyone remember the Aphex Twin "come to daddy" video? awesome)

    So yeah, there is a DVD / 40 page book combo available for like 10-15 bucks. You can buy it here:
