The Westboro Baptist Church planned to protest Red State at its premier at the Sundance Film Festival. Kevin Smith in turn planned a counter protest which he and his fans took part in. At the premiere the counter-protesters heavily outweighed the handful of Westboro protesters who showed up. This occurred 12 years after Smith's first film to tackle religious controversy, Dogma (1999), drew protests from certain sects of the Catholic Church, one of which Smith jokingly took part in himself.

And then what happened? Special Agent Keenan? Special Agent Keenan?
[breaks out of it]
I subdued the suspect... with a head butt.
A head butt?
Yes sir. The suspect was standing... unnaturally close. And then the trumpet blast sounded three more times, and a fourth and a fifth. By then it was pretty clear that the Rapture wasn't going to happen, so we rounded up the remaining Five Pointers.
Hey, what was it? The trumpet blasts?

I've heard rumors about alternative ending of this movie - will all those angels coming down to Earth, etc. May be it was actually the only way to save this movie from being total disaster.
There should be no high expectations about "independent" movies, we are ready to forgive poor or totally absent special effects and action concentrated in a single location on primitive decorations.
But SOMETHING has to separate independent movie from cheap commercial movie - yes or no?
Mixing all that rich stuff about WDC, Waco siege and freedom of speech into nit-witted horror movie seems simply tasteless. Each of these topics by itself can provide material for a small encyclopedia or library, but alas, this time tons of juicy fruits in hands of respected Kevin Smith had given birth to a small brownish pile with unpleasant smell.
So, monstrous preacher and PVC wrapped gay - that's an essence of antagonism between the State and radicals. Now we know it thanks to Kevin.
It would be more honest to make another Nazi-zombies slasher.
