• Red State details

Red State Synopsis

The movie takes direct aim at fundamentalist groups, providing for villains a small, hyper-religious sect who protest funerals for gay people and preach of the imminent rapture. The group is led by a deliberately Fred Phelps-inspired pastor named Abin Cooper (Michael Parks), called "daddy" by the members of his congregation and spouting off fiery sermons to pretty much anyone who will listen. As it turns out, though, Abin doesn't just protest the funerals, but causes them too.
