One of the most talked about films of the year premieres for home audiences as Lionsgate releases Kevin Smith’s Red State (review). Beginning September 1st, the film became available On Demand – six weeks before the debut of the Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital Download, set to release on October 18th.
A departure from his classic comedies, Smith (Clerks, Mallrats) takes on his first thriller project as writer and director. Centering on a fundamentalist group with a sinister agenda, the film features Academy Award winner Melissa Leo and Golden Globe winner John Goodman, alongside Michael Parks (Kill Bill: Vol 1 and 2), Kyle Gallner (The Haunting in Connecticut) and Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects).
Check out full specs and five clips after the break.“Three teenage boys are lured to the town of Cooper’s Dell with the promise of a party. But instead of enjoying the night of their dreams, the teens are plunged into the nightmarish world of Pastor Abin Cooper and the Five Points Trinity, a fundamentalist group with a stockpile of weaponry and a deadly moral agenda. When word of the teens’ disappearance reaches the authorities, a military task force is mobilized. With Cooper’s Dell teetering between salvation and damnation, the ATF braces for furious gun battle with Cooper and his heavily armed followers in this fever-pitched action thriller from writer-director Kevin Smith.”
