    Red State is cleverly contrarian enough to get a rise out of almost any audience. show more

    Michael Parks is fabulous as the insane preacher, and he sings too. Because of that portrayal it is a classic film

    Boring. Typical extreme Right Wing slam. Been done. Good hype. BUT, it could just be me. Been a horror fan for 40 years.

    Intense film. Too short (obviously) and not enough development in the story line. Terrible ending. Otherwise, it\'s an edgy, terrifying topic to base a film around. Overall good short-film.
