Kevin Smith's
Red Release

Kevin Smith's controversial indie flick Red State has finally come home. After months of waiting, the film has made its nationwide VOD debut.

Kevin Smith's horror thriller Red State has been released to the masses. The rogue production, which Smith directed and distributes (with some help from Lionsgate), takes a look at what he calls "the dark heart of America."

Melissa Leo in Red State

Red State centers on an evangelical Christian group that plays judge, jury and executioner to those they consider sinners. It's a blatant rip on fundamentalism and extreme religious sects. Red State's definitely not a feel good movie but the cast is worth the rental price.

Kevin Smith assembled a group of veteran, character and Oscar-winning actors to headline the film. John Goodman (Community), Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Stephen Root (Office Space) and Kevin Alejandro (True Blood) are just some of the familiar faces that populate the cast.

Red State has a campy, thriller vibe that reminds us of the horror films of the seventies and eighties. It might be the perfect movie to curl up and watch this weekend.

Red State is currently available on VOD and debuts on DVD/Blu-ray Oct. 18.

This is not a church, this is a hate group. Westboro Baptist Church spreads its hate through picketing in our streets, provoking attacks, with abusive language and flag desecration, attempting to create a confrontation. This is not about protesting, freedom, or God. They are in it for the money and the press; this is a family law firm. They are not a "church." It is a scam. They go after anything that can get them in the news. This is a family of lawyers using this “god hates you” thing to make money. It is time for this scam to end.
