Kevin Smith is a divisive dude. He certainly has his acolytes and also his haters who will dismiss anything with his name on it. I am neither really, having only seen two of his films and liking but not loving both. Smith’s latest film Tusk (2014) looks to be a fair departure from his other work, even his first horror film Red State (2011). The trailer makes it look so batshit that it looks to be a fairly big departure from basically everything else. I have to say though, a horror film featuring a walrus feels all kinds of awesome to me. I just hope that it is treated somewhat seriously, because that is the tone I would prefer over something overtly jokey. Though I’m not sure how that desire will work out for me. Any thoughts on this trailer or Smith in general? Favourite films of his?
