Film Review: Red State (2011)

Red-State-2011-movie-1

SYNOPSIS: Set in Middle America, a group of teens receive an online invitation for sex, though they soon encounter fundamentalists with a much more sinister agenda. REVIEW: The Black Saint was never really much of a Kevin Smith fan, Not that the man isn’t talented. None of his films (Besides “Dogma”) have ever struck me as particularly entertaining. And yes, I am including “Clerks” when I say this. I just don’t get the cult behind … Continue reading

It looks like it turns into a WACO situation with the FBI … Continue reading
