In 2004, a man named Marvin Heemeyer wreaked havoc on the streets of Granby, Colorado in an armored bulldozer that would be dubbed the “Killdozer.” More than fifteen years later, a documentary about the incident is set to be released.
Titled “Tread,” the documentary tells the story of a man pushed to his breaking point that uses his welding skills to fortify a bulldozer with the goal of crushing those that he believes to have wronged him. Thus far, the film has been met with favorable reviews – 7.4/10 on IMDB. It features a number of real news clips, reenactments, and interviews.
Powered by an independent film distributer called Gravitas Ventures, the movie is set to hit select theaters on February 21 shortly followed by a February 28 video-on-demand release. See the trailer below:
