Love him or hate him, Kevin Smith is a huge (literally and metaphorically) geek icon, and one of the pioneers of 90’s “slacker cinema”. Now he’s throwing his hat into the horror ring with the mysterious Red State, a movie he’s been developing for several years that centers around an ultra-conservative, bible-thumping midwestern Preacher. This teaser doesn’t shed much light on the plot of the flick, and it looks a tad sloppy and amateurish, but it seems like an interesting departure from the usual dick and fart jokes Smith has delivered for almost 20 years. Red State debuts at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23. Credit: /Film.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
