Kevin Smith gives a Red State of the Union

11.11.2010

Consider me really f*cking teased on this one.

Kevin Smith decided to give a sneak peek of his upcoming film RED STATE to a select audience. Instead of providing people with a video teaser, he recorded the happenings within a podcast.

Smith tells everyone, "It doesn't really tell you anything about plot, it's all about mood and tone, but at this point that's really all I'm willing to share. I made the teaser for the chief audience - which would be myself - so I'm pre-sold!" What you get is an eerie monologue from Michael Parks. As they go into the Q&A to discuss what was previewed I was literally screaming in my head, "I just want to see it!!!"

Fans will be able to get more details from the weekly podcast, "Red State of the Union". The site offers this: "Every week, learn all about horror upcoming horror flick RED STATE during a live, press-free conference! Non-specious movie news, directly from the filmmakers!" During the Q&A, Smith discusses several details like the awesomeness that is Michael Parks, run-time (96 minutes), the $3 million dollar budget, and how LET THE RIGHT ONE IN inspired some cool shots.

Extra tidbit:

George Carlin telling Jay and Silent Bob about the "Unwritten Book Of The Road."

That's just one of many favorites though. It just happened to pop into my head first.

Can not wait for this change up to Smith's regular flicks. Even though I have loved every one of them (yes i include jersey Girl in my love.. but will say i only LIKED Cop out)

for the extra tidbit.. my favorite shot of K. Smith's entire filmography would HAVE to be that final pull back shot from Clerks 2, where it starts in color with Dante & Randal behind the counter and it pulls back and fades to black and white with Misery Inc. playing. Great fucking scene, great closing shot.

Great teaser!

I'm really curious to see how this turns out. The fact that someone in the audience says that the footage really did match the poster (which I think is good and creepy looking), and the cast he has is fantastic. Seriously: Michael Parks, John Goodman, Anna Gunn, Melissa Leo, Stephen Root, Kevin Pollak. Goddamn!

I am still on the fence with this movie. Leaning towards diggin in but still on the fence just due to the fact that KS has never made me scared before.

Parks' voice is creepy as hell though and sets a good tone by itself.

The monologue is brilliant even without the visual aspect. I was intrigued, but color me excited now.

Michael Parks has me sold on this.

I was already interested because of how I heard that it's essentially a Satanic-Cult Movie ala "Blood Sucking Freaks", but instead of Satan they're all for Jesus. But DUDE!
