Snapshot: "Red State" (2011)
Kevin Smith is making a horror movie and I must admit, I'm pretty excited about it. The movie takes place in the Middle America and deals with a group of teens and their encounter with a preacher who practices extreme fundamentalism. Michael Parks plays Pastor Abin Cooper, whose character is loosely based on the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church.
"Red State" stars Michael Angarano, Kyle Gallner, Stephen Root, Melissa Leo, Michael Parks, John Goodman, and Ralph Garman. The movie is currently being self distributed by Smith, who is taking the movie on a traveling tour of sorts, which features a movie screening as well as a Q and A session with Mr. Smith himself afterwards. Visit the Red State Tour Date Page for upcoming dates, trailers, reviews and more. The movie is scheduled for a theatrical release October 19, 2011.
