Red State

With only a month to go before the release of Kevin Smith's tenth film, eOne has released a load of images from teh film. The film has had quite a rough ride to release with Kevin antagonising himself to both critics and fans alike over the film. However, it does look like he has got back on form from what we used to like. It seems to be much darker than the rest of his output. This maybe good, more for Kevin himself, but not for hardcore fans who expect a more lighthearted look at life.

FEAR GOD?

From cult writer/director KEVIN SMITH (Clerks; Dogma) comes his tenth film, the hotly anticipated RED STATE, a unique, intense thriller hell bent on leaving audiences feeling uncomfortable, tense and never knowing what’s going to happen next.

In Middle America, three horny teenagers travel to Cooper’s Dell after responding to an older woman’s online invitation for sex. However, their schoolboy fantasy turns sinister as Christian extremists led by the twisted preacher Abin Cooper (Michael Parks) holds them captive in his compound known as the Five Points Church. As the Pastor and his congregation embark on a reign of terror forcing the boys to witness executions before being prepared for their own death, they have to contend with the arrival of Federal Agent Joseph Keenan (John Goodman) and his team who are armed, dangerous and ready to bring these mother****ers down.

Stylish, compelling and visually exhilarating, RED STATE is unlike anything Kevin Smith has ever made before.

Featuring a remarkable stand-out performance from Tarantino favourite MICHAEL PARKS (Kill Bill Vol 1&2) as Pastor Abin Cooper, RED STATE also stars Academy Award winner MELISSA LEO (The Fighter), MICHAEL ANGARANO (The Forbidden Kingdom), KYLE GALLNER (Jennifer’s Body), NICHOLAS BRAUN (Chalet Girl) and movie veteran JOHN GOODMAN as Agent Keenan.
In UK cinemas September 30, 2011
