Final RED STATE Poster Reveals Mordechai
Here is the final character poster for Kevin Smith’s upcoming horror film Red State!
The film looks awesome, Smith’s best film in my mind. It is set to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Spinoff Online won the auction for the poster for $850, and it reveals the character Mordechai, another crazed member of the Cooper clan.
The money made from the auction will go to the South East Queensland flood relief. It Smith also wants to encourage news outlets to pay attention to the current disaster in Australia. Click here if you want to help.
Heres the synopsis for the film:
Ever since Clerks (cowinner of the Filmmakers Trophy at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival), Kevin Smith has been known for his sharp, subversive, comedic writing. He shifts from comedy to horror with Red State and aptly demonstrates that good writing transcends genre.
Red State begins by following three horny high-school boys who come across an online ad from an older woman looking for a gang bang. Boys being boys, they hit the road to satisfy their libidinal urges. But what begins as a fantasy takes a dark turn as they come face-to-face with a terrifying “holy” force with a fatal agenda.
Instead of relying on archetypes and predictable formulas, Smith meticulously fashions all-too-real characters, utilizing exceptional performances (notably by Michael Parks) and an intelligent script. His realistic style gives the film an intimate feeling, heightening the terror to biblical proportions. Red State is a shocking new kind of horror film that aggressively confronts higher powers and extreme doctrines with a vengeance.
