Linsey Dawn McKenzie was supposed to be the female Rubber Johnny in a deleted scene, which featured both Rubber Johnnies playing outside really fast at night. A photo of her can be found in the booklet that accompanies the DVD.See more »

A very well done short film., 16 January 2006
Author: Stonedwithoutdope from New Zealand

Altogether this is an enjoyable little movie but you can really enjoy it if you imagine it as real life footage. Chris Cunningham and his crew make this out as if they are filming actual footage of a deformed teenager and if you know the back story it can strike your brain as fairly disturbing. They do it well.

This shows footage of a severely deformed super flexible teenager living in solitude in his dark basement where his parents keep him due to being ashamed of him. All he has for company is his frightened dog. This will show his reaction to someone trying to get through to him and a little dance number to keep himself occupied in his dull life.

Overall this is a great little enjoyable film and spooky at that. Bravo Chris Cunningham, you rock.
