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.

Kevin Smith Lashes Out At Independent Spirit Awards For Red State Snub Kevin Smith Lashes Out At Independent Spirit Awards For Red State Snub
The Independent Spirit Award nominations came out a few days ago, and there weren't too many surprises, with buzzed-about indies such as Another Earth and The Artist receiving nominations. One person who wasn't pleased with the noms, however, is filmmaker/full-time podcaster Kevin Smith, who took to Twitter earlier this week to lambast the Spirit awards for not nominating anyone from his horror film Red State.

Red State Gets A Profane And Violent Red Band Trailer Red State Gets A Profane And Violent Red Band Trailer
