Let Me Tell You a Story… Dang, this is pretty cool. A24 has unveiled the first teaser poster for Kevin Smith's Tusk, his new horror film about a walrus man, or something like that. We have yet to actually see a teaser trailer in public, however it seems like A24 is getting ready to launch one following this poster. The artwork features a moonlit house positioned on a cliff, with tusks sticking out beneath it. It's impressive imagery for an official studio poster, and is quite a teaser for this horror project that has been kept quietly under wraps since Kevin Smith started production. Now they have my attention; I'm intrigued to see more from this film. The trailer is set to debut online in full after it unveils at Comic-Con later in July. Check out this art below.
Here's the very first teaser poster for Kevin Smith's Tusk, as tweeted out by @A24Films with this message:

Tusk is the new film written & directed by Kevin Smith (or @ThatKevinSmith as he's listed on the poster), of Clerks I-III, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Cop Out, and Red State. The plot involves a best friend and his podcast co-host who go missing in the backwoods of Canada, and they go searching for them. Early buzz from distributors praises a "horror movie for the ages", something along the lines of The Human Centipede, if not crazier. "We can say with certainty that this movie will blow people's minds. Truly one you'll have to see to believe." Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Justin Long, Michael Parks, Johnny Depp,m Ralph Garman appear in the film. A24 & Demarest Films will release Kevin Smith's Tusk later in 2014, but no date is set yet. #WalrusYes
