Got some news on a creepy looking new flick heading our way from Tribeca Films. With the catchy title RUBBERNECK the film is being billed as a slow-burn character study-turned-psychosexual thriller, Rubberneck, co-written by Karpovsky (“Girls”) and Garth Donovan, is a chillingly believable story of workplace romance gone wrong. It co-stars Jaime Ray Newman and Dennis Staroselsky and was produced by Michael Bowes, Garth Donovan, and Adam Roffman.
We’ve all had that creepy co-worker right? The one that we go out of the way to avoid in the lunch room or hope to not run into on a bathroom break. This film is about just that only taken to the extreme.
Paul Harris is a scientist at a small research facility on the outskirts of Boston. After a weekend tryst with Danielle, an attractive and promiscuous co-worker, leaves him wanting more, his unreciprocated desires gradually mold into an acute infatuation over the following months. When Danielle takes interest in a new researcher at the laboratory, Paul’s suppressed resentments and perverse delusions finally become unhinged, triggering an horrific course of events that mercilessly engulf a tortured past and fugitive present. A slow-burning, character-driven psychosexual thriller, Rubberneck navigates through the binds of childhood, the underpinnings of obsessions, and our sadistic inability to look away.
