Now that writer/director Kevin Smith is nearly finished with his National Red State (review) ripoff tour (where he charged his closest, most devoted fans a whopping $80 to see his latest effort), the comedy director’s first horror entry is entering its next phase of release.
Smith updated the film’s website with the announcement that Lionsgate will release the political horror on VOD this coming Labor Day (Monday, September 5). The Gate will then release it on Blu-ray and DVD at a later date, following a limited theatrical run.
“If you didn’t join us during our first theatrical run, you can catch ‘Red State’ on VOD this Labor Day; and less than a month later, in October, you can see ‘Red State’ in a movie theater, immediately followed by a rollicking, no-holds-barred live-streamed, interactive Q&A! And when the Q&A is done, we wrap this unique theatrical experience with a performance of HOLLYWOOD BABBLE-ON, featuring me and Red State co-star Ralph Garman! Three big shows for one insanely low price: under $20.”
Red State, which stars Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Angarano, Steven Root, Michael Parks and John Goodman, “unfolds in a small town dominated by a fundamentalist preacher, Abin Cooper. It tells the story of three high school boys who, on their way to an internet arranged meeting with a woman, end up crossing paths with Cooper. The encounter sets into motion a series of events that causes all hell to break loose.”
