John Goodman In Trailer For Kevin Smith’s Political/Religious Horror Film, ‘Red State’ (VIDEO)
This isn’t your older brother’s Kevin Smith.
The New Jersey indie filmmaker, made famous for his slacker comedy cult classics ‘Clerks’ and ‘Mallrats,’ is taking aim at a new genre: religious/political horror — one he’s helping to coin himself.
Smith has released the first trailer for his upcoming film, ‘Red State,’ a frightening look at religious extremism in America, based in part on anti-gay, anti-America Kansas pastor Fred Phelps. Frightening and thrilling for Smith: the film has no distributor yet; he plans on screening it at Sundance Film Festival, and then holding an auction for its rights in public view.
