RED STATE is an amazing mix of horror, thriller, action, comedy and a million other genres! I've been a fan of Kevin Smith since the brilliant comedy, CLERKS, but with the except of CHASING AMY, Smith seemed to lose his way with his followup works. I'm so happy to say with RED STATE, Kevin is back!!
Three teenagers travel to meet a loose woman who wants to have relations with all of the guys at the same time. At this point, I was confident that I knew how the film was going to go, but let me tell you, I was wrong! RED STATE takes all the movie cliches and spins them on their head! When was the last time you watched a movie and had absolutely no clue what was going to happen next?
The only fault I could find was a wordy speech that should've been shaved down a bit. But don't let that sour you on this movie!
My advice--batton down the hatches, sit back and enjoy the ride! RED STATE is a grand revelation and one to be savored!

Kevin Smith's most mature film to date. This film did come as somewhat of a surprise. If I'm not mistaken, except for Chasing Amy (which did have moments of comedy throughout), all of his films have been comedies. Red State is a very disturbing thriller that seems ripped from the headlines. Ruby Ridge, Waco, USPATRIOT act, the war on terror and countless other elements which have become a part of our nation's everyday existence are expertly touched upon during the course of this film. It perfectly captures the random horror which exists in our lives.

This is a difficult review to write. In my opinion, the director commits the "sin" of reducing many of the central characters of this story to base stereotypes, and then pushing those stereotypes to absolute extremes. Yet, somehow the story comes across as not only believable, but probable. Even the ending (which I won't spoil) is completely predictable based on what you know of the major characters in the first 20 minutes. Don't get me wrong, this movie is worth watching. It is disturbing, and thought provoking, and even frightening at how accurate of a character study this is. The writers and the director really did their homework on this one.
