Kevin Smith’s Horror Movie ‘Red State’ Adds John Goodman To Cast

Talks of a horror movie by director Kevin Smith have been present for a few years now, but financing seemed unlikely for the majority of that time.

Not too long ago, Smith announced that he had finally obtained backing on the film, titled Red State, and that it would be happening soon. Since then, casting has been going on with multiple names added. Today, another actor joined the film, and that actor is John Goodman.

The movie is said to be incredibly dark, being based loosely on Westboro Baptist Church pastor Fred Phelps and his extremist views on pretty much everything, including homosexuality. Not much is known about the plot, but that it will extract a hate-filled religious figure such as Phelps and implant him into a horror movie. If you Google Fred Phelps, you can read all about what he does and what his family and church stand for. You’re almost guaranteed to be infuriated. You can also see how much he looks like that creepy dude from Poltergeist II.

A Nightmare on Elm StreetIntro by The Movie God.

A title that certainly needs no introduction, the remake/reboot/re-imagining/re-envisioning of the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street is now here.

Just like with Friday the 13th back in February of 2009, Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company is bringing the dark lord of your very worst dreams, Freddy Krueger, back to cinemas to try and terrify a whole new generation of young fans.

Despite the obvious visual updates to the character and world, horror purists are still having trouble warming up to this new Nightmare on Elm Street. But what did YOU think? Was it superior to the older movies? Was is a terrible remake? Is it fun, despite its lacking qualities?

This time around, the idea is to try and add a level of realism to the story, first with the appearance of Freddy Krueger, which is a gruesomely accurate depiction of a burn victim. Instead of bringing back fan-favorite Robert Englund (I’m still waiting for Freddy vs. Jason 2!), producers cast another current fan-favorite in Jackie Earle Haley, who dusts off his best Rorschach voice for the part.

Also, in the beginning, Freddy doesn’t start as a pure killer. He begins as a simple, nobody of a man who’s accused of unthinkable acts against the children of Elm Street and finds himself running from an angry mob of parents. But the parents’ final act of vengeance actually unleashes an unspeakable evil as the dream demon emerges years later, ready to have his revenge within the subconscious of many unsuspecting victims.

Wake up as soon as possible and run to the other side to read our spoiler-filled thoughts on the movie, and then vent and praise your own views! It’s time for SPOILER-TALK!
