Kevin Smith's Red State

Now we finally get a good look at the cast. Hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement that Kevin Smith's new horror film Red State would officially be premiering at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, a batch of new photos from the film recently hit the web. ShockTillYouDrop is where I first found them and you can check out three shots below, plus one more of an actress on their site. Not surprisingly, this actually looks like a solid indie horror about some teens who "encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America." In addition John Goodman, there's one photo of Michael Parks as crazy Pastor Abin Cooper.

Red State is written and directed by filmmaker Kevin Smith, of great films like Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma and Zack and Miri Make a Porno. The cast in the film includes John Goodman, Kyle Gallner, Michael Angarano, Stephen Root, Kevin Pollak, Anna Gunn, Melissa Leo, Michael Parks and Haley Ramm. Smith developed the film independently and will be premiering it at the festival where it all started, the Sundance Film Festival coming up this January. It looks great so far and I'm curious to actually see this, considering it's also a big departure for Smith himself. But, we'll continue to keep you updated! Thoughts on these new photos?

I remember he mentioned this a long time ago on an early smodcast and the idea sounded great back then.*Hopefully* Smith can return to form with this flick....

Pics look great. I'm a Kevin Smith fan. Hopefully this departure will show he can do more than his 'comfort zone' of movies.

"encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America." How refreshing of Hollywood to finally tackle this. The only acceptable villains in Hollywood: 1. Conservative Americans 2. European Nazis

Not a fan of Smith's but I'm kind of looking forward to this departure from his usual babbling nonsense. And of course it'll be nice to see fundamentalism get crucified for a change.

I think it will rock. kevin Smith is sort of hyping it in a... laughable way... but I bet it will be solid.

Looks Good Cant Wait

Could be cool. I'm willing to give Smith the benefit of the doubt for "Cop Out" since he didn't actually write that movie. But I feel like this will be the last straw for a lot of people, if this ends up bad.

At least it looks like he got a decent DP.

Ah yes, Hollywood liberal fantasy porn where those fly over country people (We don't know anyone like that, do we Muffy?) with strange values (bitter clingers to their guns and religion according to The One) present a clear and present danger to sophisticated members of the bi-coastal reality based community. A film well worth missing.

Pre-weightless John Goodman?

#3 Conservatives in this film ARE the fundamentalists. I still can't believe Kevin Smith is making movies though, he is such a terrible director. His movies just keep getting worse.

Yep on Dec 3, 2010


The protagonists in the film should be liberal extremists. So instead of fighting back, they just sit there, because fighting back is wrong.

right-winged americans are funny.

More bigotry and racism from hollywood. The Evil People are...... the European-Amercian Protestants. Again. As always. Where is the movie about fundamentalist jews in New York City, or Los Angeles? How about a movie about religious Israeli soldiers murdering innocent Palestinians, and justifying it based on their religion.

Phil on Dec 3, 2010


Phil you need to take a chill pill. Those minorities dont work because they live in cities. A Quaker or Mormon deal could be cool though or maybe Scientology. I dunno its just entertainment.

Ah, Michael Parks. He makes any scene worth watching. When is he going to get top billing?

Delvis Crasho on Dec 6, 2010


I don't like horror -but will try to sit through it to see Michael Parks. He's an amazing actor -always has been. I'm glad he's still around -but wish he do better movies. Noble things and The Listening were good. I like John Goodman too.

Trisha on Dec 7, 2010


If you're a Parks fan-check out: Yeah - I don't get the whole scare-the-crap-outta-me thing either. Or the let me see what the perverts are doing these days...I like suspense -but not the sicko stuff...
