Gay-friendly filmmaker Kevin Smith has taken a radical departure from the proudly vulgar, dialog-driven indie comedies that earned him a huge cult following (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma). With Red State, Smith and his impressive cast (Michael Angarano, Kyle Gallner, John Goodman, Melissa Leo, Michael Parks, Kevin Pollak, Anna Gunn, Stephen Root, Kevin Alejandro) have crafted a gritty horror flick - inspired by the madness and anti-gay hatred of Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church - that doubles as a brutal satire about the dangers of intolerance and the radical fundamentalist mind-set.
Three teenaged 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 a furious gun battle with Cooper and his heavily armed followers in this fever–pitched action thriller.
