Part “Human Centipede” and part “Misery,” check out the first trailer for Kevin Smith’s “Tusk.” I gotta admit, this coming from the same guy who gave us “Clerks” and Jay and Silent Bob is a bit weird. Then again, following up on “Red State,” it’s probably not too much of a stretch, and will likely be accepted more easily. I remember when no one knew what the hell to make of “Red State.” Since he’s already opened this new phase of his career, “Tusk” should go down easier for Smith’s fans.
Not so much for Justin Long’s character (or that wicked ‘stache of his) in the movie, though. He plays a man who is “captured by a maniac and tortured, physically and mentally, into becoming a walrus. The poor bastard.
Starring Justin Long, Genesis Rodriguez, Haley Joel Osment (!), and Michael Parks.
Avoid Canada this September 19th.
