Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
The teenager Jarod invites his best friends Travis and Billy-Ray to have a foursome with a thirty-eight year-old woman. While driving to meet the woman, Travis hit a car parked on the road. When they meet the woman, she gives spiked beer to them and they pass out. When the three friends wake up, they find that they are trapped in the fundamentalist Five Points Trinity Church of the infamous Pastor Abin Cooper and that they will be killed. Meanwhile the church is under siege by ATF agents led by Agent Joseph Keenan that have been ordered to destroy the terrorist cell. Will the teenagers be saved by the agents of the law enforcement agency? Written by

A first for writer/director Kevin Smith, he has stated this film is a strict non-comedy saying, "It's a nasty-ass $4mil horror flick with few (if any) redeeming characters." See more »

Kevin is the reason I went to school for film. Much of my writing and dialogue is heavily influenced by Kevin's material throughout the years. I gave this film 1 star out of 10. It was a huge mess. The story was lame, the dialogue was "eh" and the acting was truly awful. The characters were awful and I felt like I was suffering through a Rob Zombie film. Did Kevin have Zombie secretly guide him through the filming of this awful piece of crap? Kevin hits on all cylinders when he does comedy, no mistake about it, but he suffers as a film maker when he attempts other genres (Red State AKA The-Awful-Makes-No-Sense-With-Unlikeable- Characters, Jersey Girl, etc.) Kevin Smith making a horror film is just a terrible idea. I would not ask Rob Zombie to direct Saving Private Ryan, would you? I don't look forward to Hit Somebody, Clerks 2....I'm afraid...was and will be Kevin's last great film, if he retires after making Hit Somebody (why is it a two part movie?) My God, the dialogue in this film and the acting was truly, truly, truly awful. I'll continue to re-watch the View Askewniverse flicks and relive the glory days of his filmmaking. I have lost faith in Kevin Smith with this film. Now onder no studios would distribute this pile of rubbish.
