[color=DBCF9E]Kevin Smith is promoting 'Red State,' a film he does not want to be promoting and, in turn, he makes it clear that he doesn't really want to be talking to the likes of me.
Up to this point, Smith has self-distributed 'Red State' -- taking his horror film, and himself, on a tour of theaters nationwide. But now, 'Red State' is being released onto video on demand this weekend and his new distributor would like him to talk to the press about the film. So here we are!
[color=DBCF9E]Is 'Red State' a horror movie? It's suspenseful, but do we call it a horror film?
[color=B3FCF0]I called it horror because, honestly, and I stand by this: What else do I call it? The things that happen in it, to me, are horrifying. So I'm like, "That's a horror movie." And that's the easiest way to sum it up before anybody saw it. But it's more of a genre mash-up. I put in a little horror; I tried to do action-thriller; I put in dark satire.
These ↑ last few statements cracked me up. I just wanted to make it clear that it is Kevin Smith, talking about Kevin Smith. (3rd person narrative)
[color=B3FCF0]Basically, I love "Kevin Smith Movies," don't get me wrong. But I could make a "Kevin Smith Movie" in my sleep – and I've been accused of doing so. So, for me, it was kind of important to see if I could make another type of movie.
As much as I love Kevin Smith -- and I am the biggest Kevin Smith fan; both in spirit and in size – I know that I can make a "Kevin Smith Movie." The movies I dream about making aren't my own; I dream about making Quentin Tarantino movies and Coen Brothers movies. Those are the movies I watch and go, "that's my porn."
