Melissa Leo holds the Bible close in this new poster for Red State
Curiosity is high for Kevin Smith's next cinematic pursuit RED STATE. The first teaser trailer for the film was a long departure from the usual stuff that Smith delivers. It will be interesting to see what he brings to the horror genre.
That said, the newest poster for RED STATE follows the same design as the first two. In this one it's Melissa Leo (THE FIGHTER) as Sarah clutching her Bible close gazing into the unknown. I really like how the overlaying texture looks like a folded up piece of paper that's spent too long is someone's back pocket.
This particular character poster was released on the site, Ma's Meatloaf thanks to a donation of $1,000 to Eliza Dushku's THARCE-Gulu cause. The donation will go to help former child soldiers heal from the traumatic events of war and sexual enslavement. If you are curious about the charity or would like to donate yourself, head here.
Official Sundance synopsis:
"Ever since Clerks (cowinner of the Filmmakers Trophy at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival), Kevin Smith has been known for his sharp, subversive, comedic writing. He shifts from comedy to horror with Red State and aptly demonstrates that good writing transcends genre. Red State begins by following three horny high-school boys who come across an online ad from an older woman looking for a gang bang. Boys being boys, they hit the road to satisfy their libidinal urges. But what begins as a fantasy takes a dark turn as they come face-to-face with a terrifying “holy” force with a fatal agenda. Instead of relying on archetypes and predictable formulas, Smith meticulously fashions all-too-real characters, utilizing exceptional performances (notably by Michael Parks) and an intelligent script. His realistic style gives the film an intimate feeling, heightening the terror to biblical proportions. Red State is a shocking new kind of horror film that aggressively confronts higher powers and extreme doctrines with a vengeance."
