From cult writer/director Kevin Smith (CLERKS; DOGMA) comes his tenth film, the hotly anticipated RED STATE, a unique, intense thriller hell bent on leaving audiences feeling uncomfortable, tense and never knowing what's going to happen next.
In Middle America, three horny teenagers travel to Cooper's Dell after responding to an older woman's online invitation for sex. However, their schoolboy fantasy turns sinister as Christian extremists led by the twisted preacher Abin Cooper (Michael Parks) holds them captive in his compound known as the Five Points Church.
Cooper and his congregation terrifyingly force the boys to witness executions before being prepared for their own death. They have to contend with the arrival of Federal Agent Joseph Keenan (John Goodman) and his team who are armed and dangerous.
Stylish, compelling and visually exhilarating, RED STATE is unlike anything Kevin Smith has ever made before.
