Story


The 10th film from writer/director Kevin Smith ("Clerks", "Chasing Amy", "Dogma", "Clerks 2", "Zack & Miri Make a Porno"), RED STATE unfolds in a small town dominated by a fundamentalist preacher, Abin Cooper. It tells the story of three high school boys who, on their way to an internet arranged meeting with a woman, end up crossing paths with Cooper. The encounter sets into motion a series of events that causes all hell to break loose. A horror thriller that could only come from the imagination of Smith, RED STATE stars Tarantino and Rodriguez favorite Michael Parks ("From Dusk Till Dawn", "Kill Bill Vols. 1 & 2"), Oscar Nominee for Best Actress Melissa Leo ("The Fighter," "Frozen River") and John Goodman, Michael Angarano, Kyle Gallner and Nicholas Braun.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film never really tries to fit comfortably within any of those genres..”
by Mack Rawden [Cinema Blend]
“..all in all, it's a hell of a movie and a mark of Smith's talent, but Red State falls short of his pantheon because for the first time, we don't know who he's mad at..”
by Anthony Benigno [Filmcritic.com]
“..might have had time to seek counsel on the eternal battle between good and bad writing..”
by Joe Tyrrell [New Jersey News Room]
