Kevin Smith finished filming AND editing Red State this week. The reason for this is that Kevin likes to edit his own films and in this case he was editing while shooting the film. He had it done so quickly that in a unprecedented move he screened the entire film for the Cast and Crew at the wrap party. Since it’s in the bag Kevin posted on his twitter feed “trick or treat?” which naturally received a lot of treat responses. With that he posted a link to his blog with the teaser poster for Red State which we have above. Not much about the film is known except that it’s said to center around a Fred Phelps like family but when asked for some elaboration Kevin did respond with this. “ There’s some gallows humor, some dark f*cking laughs. And Michael Park’s performance is not to be believed… to me, it plays like an exploitation film. When I was growing up, my favorite kind of movies were devil worshipping movies. This is an angel worship movie. You’ll see what I mean.”
It’s a film that should still pique the interest of many as it’s something other than the usual comedy we have come to expect from someone like Kevin Smith.
