Upon retiring from Hollywood last year, Kevin Smith vowed that his days of directing throwaway efforts like Cop Out and Jersey Girl were gone for good. “I’m only ever gonna make a flick that only I would/could ever make,” said Smith, presumably before launching into his epic Superman Lives story for the umpteenth time and/or eating a burrito. His first “Post-Empire” effort (as Bret Easton Ellis might dub it) resulted in Red State, a scatterbrained horror/thriller that was a critical and commercial failure in almost every regard, but a firm kick in the balls of “the man” nonetheless.

At Comic-Con over the weekend, Smith released a trailer for his next independent effort, Tusk, which true to his word, is a movie that only he or maybe Tom Six could make. Why? Because Tusk is essentially The Human Centipede meets “I Am the Walrus,” starring Justin Long with a pedostache and Haley Joel f*cking Osment. The plot is as follows:

 A man is captured by a maniac and tortured, physically and mentally, into becoming a walrus.

If that doesn’t scream “BOX OFFICE GOLD”, then everything I know about the current state of cinema is absolutely correct.

I’ll be honest, though, this trailer contains just the right amount of “What the Fuck?” to intrigue me, despite the fact that it’s operating under the belief that a podcast journalist with a pedostache can pull in trim like Genesis Rodriguez. Plus, the trailer had me at “Michael Parks as a creepy old Canadian.”


“What do you mean we’re out of Kraft dinner?!”

Everybody shut the fuck up and watch the official trailer for Kevin Smith‘s Red State. It opens with three young men trying to get drunk enough to bang Melissa Leo. They’re then unknowingly drugged and captured by her family of wacky religious fundamentalists. From there we see the gonzo practices of Michael Parks’ church and then a full-on standoff between the church and John Goodman: FBI.

It’s Smith’s first foray into horror (besides working with J. Lo) and immediately comes off as stirring as the work of Rob Zombie. Judging from the trailer, the film boasts more than a few tense, white knuckle moments. I wonder how Jay and Silent Bob are going to save the day this time.
