I'm not afraid to admit that I'm a pretty big fan of Kevin Smith. I loved his original movies, I liked "Red State" quite a bit. I realize though, there are a lot of folks out there that can't stand him, and I get that. (Read: Joe.)
While I used to listen to Smith's many podcasts, I got away from them, so I missed the episode where they supposedly launched the idea for "Tusk". They claim it was created there, so more power to them. Despite all that, the movie looks weird and strange and actually straight up horror, which is nice. Plus, it looks different, which is saying a lot in today's age of sequels and cookie cutter horror movie plots. Will it be great? Who knows, way to early to say. With Smith's humor, Michael Parks as a crazy old man and Justin Long as a douchey podcaster, I'm willing to give it a go!
