Holden and Banky are comic book artists. Everything's going good for them until they meet Alyssa, also a comic book artist. Holden falls for her, but his hopes are crushed when he finds out she's a lesbian.
Joey Lauren Adams,
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 »
(at around 1h 13 mins) At the end of Cooper's paraphrase of the opening of the seven seals, he throws his arms above his head. He then slowly lowers them- twice. First in an over-the-shoulder shot of actor John Goodman, and again in the next shot, a frontal shot of the good preacher. See more »
In the closing credits: 'Almost this entire cast will return in HIT SOMEBODY Coming over the boards in 2012.' Also: 'To take the edge off RED STATE go listen to hours of funny for free at smodcast.com "There's so many to choose from!"' See more »
Almost as insulting as watching The Hurt Locker. Michael Parks is amazing
Michael Parks was amazing/flawless, one of the best performances I have ever experienced and really deserves props for his role. Michael Parks IS what you will be thinking about long after the movie is over. Mrs. Cooper did her best to repeat Piper Laurie playing Mrs. White but I did not pay $10.00 to watch cut-ups of Carrie. John Goodman did a pretty good job of playing John Goodman. The rest of the line delivery and acting was like watching an episode of Just Shoot Me. It was so forced and preachy (no matter which side of the fence you are on) that I was waiting for Kirk Cameron to pop out to save this mess. It looked as if Kevin Smith skipped hiring any technical advisor's and instead just repeated what he was familiar with no matter how inaccurate. Spend 25 minutes watching the "Making Of" On-Demand for free THEN spend $10.00 to see the movie. I never had much interest in the previous works of Kevin Smith mainly because of that high-school drama production line delivery (Chris Rock and Jason Lee in Dogma are some excellent examples). The only thing that was funny (besides the chicken liver Kevin Pollak had to stick on his eye for his head shot)was seeing Mister Rogers sexy old friend going fully automatic.
