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 movies are full of rage, life and humor, and to find fault with their sloppy editing or awkward performances is to miss the point..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..might have had time to seek counsel on the eternal battle between good and bad writing..”
by Joe Tyrrell [New Jersey News Room]
“..the film gets off to a promisingly naturalistic start, until Parks begins a fire-and-brimstone monologue that goes on and on and on..”
by Nathan Rabin [AV Club]
