Super Hybrid


Late one night, a mysterious car is brought into the Chicago police impound garage after a deadly traffic accident. The garage's female mechanic, Tilda, and her young, hip fellow mechanics soon discover the car has a mind of its own: it morphs into different cars to confuse them and instead of needing an engine to run, it breathes. It's a killing machine that is capable of outrunning and outwitting humans.

REVIEW

Slammed on Rotten Tomatoes with a 19% audience score, Super Hybrid takes what could be a decent concept and then spectacularly fails to deliver. Even a partsgeek or gearhead, people who might overlook a terrible movie that contained cool or unique cars with modified auto parts, will not find much to like here. Although a UHM staff member has not yet reviewed this movie, you can get a good idea of what you're in for with this review from Rotten Tomatoes Super Reviewer Lewis C.: "A living, man-eating, shape-shifting car killing off a group of people trapped in a parking garage probably could make for an entertaining flick...but, this isn't it. Super Hybrid is one of the dullest, dumbest"horror" movies I've seen in quite a whole. The characters areimpossible to care about and maybe two interesting things happen theentire time. It's not so good that it's bad, it's just bad. And evenworse, it's boring.
