Kevin Smith Takes ‘Red State’ to Twitter, Talks Violence

Yesterday on Twitter writer-director Kevin Smith got his fans tweeting after posting the following about his now-filming Red State: “In the 70’s, they made exploitation flicks about devil worship. We flip it on RED STATE – so it’s an exploitation flick about angel worship.” Starring Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Angarano, Steven Root, Michael Parks, and John Goodman, Red State is a horror film in which a group of misfits encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America. And Smith swears it’s straight up horror. When asked by a non-militant Christian if the flick would be offensive, Smith replied “Christ, no – s’just a horror flick. I swear…” adding that it’s “Christploitation – a concept that, sadly, extends far beyond a dopey film genre…” As for the violence, Smith jokes, “You won’t forget our first kill. Guar-an-teed…” Shooting is underway in Los Angeles with plans on submitting to Sundance.
