Trivia

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.

I agree this is an awful film!
6 September 2011 | by mrmachachiSee all my reviews

Except for the two Clerks films and maybe Dogma, Kevin Smith has proved his one of the laziest and most inconsequential directors to come out of the heyday of indie/Miramax filmmaking.

This film is just god awful. Boring, not scary, no thrills, terrible acting, some of the worst writing I've ever had the displeasure of sitting through. I did not see Cop Out, but I can't imagine it was much worse than this. Why Melissa Leo would star in this is beyond me, and the guy playing the psycho preacher was fairly decent I suppose. Otherwise, it looks cheap, it feels cheap, and it is a complete waste of time you will never get back...Ever. Stay far away even on video - remember: you don't get your time back in life.

CRAPOLA!
