Kevin Smith don't go together. But that hasn't stopped the indie director best known for Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob from trying.
His first effort, Red State, was so-so. I'd say it falls more into thriller territory than horror. His latest effort, Tusk, sounds a lot more like a straight-up genre picture, with a little bit of Smith's humour thrown in for good measure.
In Tusk, Justin Long plays a journalist who is captured by a maniac and tortured physically and mentally into becoming a walrus. Yup, a walrus. This clip features a pre-walrus Long as he makes a desperate phone call for help. And a humorous request.
Gotta admit, I'm down for this. It just sounds so . . . wrong!
Tusk also stars Genesis Rodriguez, Haley Joel Osment (yes, the kid from The Sixth Sense) and Michael Parks. It hits theatres the same day Season Six debuts in The Basement: Sept 19.
