Kevin Smith’s Red State Teaser Trailer Looks Deadly Serious

Well this is something of a surprise. When I heard that Kevin Smith was doing a horror movie called “Red State”, I expected it to be something of a goof on the genre, kinda like what Joss Whedon is doing with his “Cabin in the Woods” movie. As it turns out, that may not be the case, cause this teaser trailer for Smith’s “Red State” looks deadly serious (opening intro notwithstanding, natch). Check it out below.

A horror film in which a group of misfits encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America.

Starring Kyle Gallner, John Goodman, Kevin Alejandro, Michael Angarano, Anna Gunn, Melissa Leo, Stephen Root, Kevin Pollak, Haley Ramm, Kerry Bishé, Michael Parks and directed by Kevin Smith.

Getting all serious and such in 2011.
