Kevin Smith’s “Red State” gets a disturbing teaser trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Kevin Smith has been teasing his latest picture, “Red State,” for some time now on his own network of Web sites and social media outlets. Now, we’re getting our first look at the film … and it looks like NOTHING Smith has done prior.

That’s good, though.

Smith released a “Red State” teaser on his own Smodcast.com. It also made it to YouTube, if you’d like to check it out there:

A horror film of sorts, Smith “State” is being described as “a shocking new kind of horror film that aggressively confronts higher powers and extreme doctrines with a vengeance.” It stars John Goodman, Kevin Pollack, the great Michael Parks, Dermot Mulroney, Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo and Stephen Root.

Over the past few weeks, Smith has been raising monies for respectable charities by auctioning off “Red State” posters to the highest bidders on Twitter. He has said he is bringing the film to Sundance and will auction off distribution rights immediately after the film’s first screening.

That doesn’t explain why the trailer announces a March release date. I guess Smith will demand that in the “negotiations.”

    I’m amazed some sites like this are still reporting Dermot Mulroney as a star of this movie, as Smith himself has confirmed dozens of times that he is not in the film, as he had to back out due to scheduling conflicts. The information is everywhere, so this is just lazy journalism. So it’s ironic that you have a few little jabs in there about how Smith has done his job in the past, when you can’t do yours when the information is served up on a platter for you.
