Kevin Smith’s Red State never said it would be a tranquil movie.
Back in June Smith announced that he will be getting his movie out there to fans, with a video-on-demand release on September 1 to come before a one-night-only nationwide theatrical release in October.
Now we have a red band trailer, watch it below:
Profanity and violence are all over the trailer. Smith has praised Michael Parks’s performance endlessly in promoting the movie, and in the trailer we can see a brief glimpse of the performance from Parks as the Fred Phelps leader of the conservative religious group.

RED STATE unfolds in a small town dominated by a fundamentalist preacher, Abin Cooper. It tells the story of three high school boys who, on their way to an internet arranged meeting with a woman, end up crossing paths with Cooper. The encounter sets into motion a series of events that causes all hell to break loose. A horror thriller that could only come from the imagination of Smith, RED STATE stars Tarantino and Rodriguez favorite Michael Parks (“From Dusk Till Dawn”, “Kill Bill Vols. 1 & 2”), Oscar Nominee for Best Actress Melissa Leo (“The Fighter,” “Frozen River”) and John Goodman, Michael Angarano, Kyle Gallner and Nicholas Braun.
