Red State teaser online
Kevin Smith is introducing the teaser trailer for his film Red State and I think you'd definitely agree that this is an eighteen only trailer.
It looks interesting, although there's no story being told here, there are a collection of scenes that promise a lot of terror, some horror, and the unsettling tone of the voice of the preacher and no music.
The teaser trailer for Kevin Smith's Red State is an interesting one, not just for the fact there's no MPAA rating and just Smith talking about how he's going to distribute the film - I wonder if we'll get to see it outside of America, perhaps the Edinburgh International Film Festival might pay for a copy to head over here - but also for the fact that the trailer looks pretty interesting.
There's a couple of things going on here, what seems to be a clear feeling of the religious community against the authorities comes out early on in the images and then we get something more internal, there's a suggestion of abuse within families or the community itself, and really that's about all the story we get.
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.
That's the blurb, and still we don't get enough from the story. We'll have to wait for the full trailer.
You can see the teaser trailer for Red State over at Apple Trailers in high definition, see what you think and if you're lucky enough to get Kevin Smith bringing the film to you then you should definitely get some tickets, however the film turns out it's going to be an event.
