After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival this past January, Kevin Smith has officially begun his National roadshow for his political horror Red State (review), which he’ll officially release come October 19.
This morning Apple.com premiered the “official” trailer, poster and synopsis.
“The 10th film from writer/director Kevin Smith (“Clerks”, “Chasing Amy”, “Dogma”, “Clerks 2″, “Zack & Miri Make a Porno”), ‘Red State’ 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.
A horror thriller that could only come from the imagination of Smith, ‘Red State’ stars Tarantino and Rodriguez favorite Michael Parks (“From Dusk Till Dawn”, “Kill Bill Vols. 1 & 2″), Oscar Nominee for Best Actress Melissa Leo (“The Fighter,” “Frozen River”) and John Goodman, Michael Angarano, Kyle Gallner and Nicholas Braun.“
