8Red State is the type of movie that would really keep you on the edge of your seat, if you weren't constantly being bashed over the head with the general "message": Kevin Smith hates religious nutjobs and corrupt government officials (don't we all?).

I felt the actors portrayed their respective roles very well, especially Michael Parks. I have much more to type but I will need to come back and finish it.… Expand
Kevin Smith has always been able to defy genres with his films but Red State may be the best at it as it works as both a horror film and a satire.
Red State tells the tale of Travis, Billy Ray and Jarod who find a woman open to a foursome online and head into the back end of nowhere to meet her.

Smith manages to make the horror original and well and truly haunting in places, with his satire being to the point but not overbearing with it being more comic than anything. The elements come together well to provide a seriously fun little film that does pose some questions while both making you laugh and scaring you in an extremely real way.… Expand
After Cop Out Smith didn't quit the movie business (as he said he would) but instead he cranked out this lo-budget film. It's made for 4m$ and shot digitally on Red. The plot doesn't twist and turn as Smith intended but feels more like a mashup of allot of other better films. Only at the end there is a twist but it feels forced and glued on...Smith still has one flick left in him (Hit Somebody) about Hockey so let's hope it turns out better.… Expand
