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.

“I promise you, ladies and gentlemen, that for the next 95 minutes all levity is going to leave this room. You’re going to enter a world of hate and fucking hopelessness. I’m so not shitting. ‘Red State’ is not a comedy. This is hands down a horror movie, like ‘Jersey Girl.’ Be forewarned. You might get nauseous or run out of the screening. It’s that kind of movie.” - Kevin Smith

"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.



I like horror movies. That is all.
