I guess I saw it simply out of curiosity. I consider myself pretty desensitized from all the shock material one is shown on the Internet, so I guess that was why I wasn't truly physically disgusted by the movie's worst scenes. I did however take some pauses to digest the ethical side of it.
I honestly have no idea what to rate this movie. At its best it's a thriller with horror and betrayal with shades of Oldboy, but both…
First of all, I would encourage people curious about the movie to watch it as it's very difficult to review without mildly spoiling some unexpected bits.
Red State is extremely confrontational and somewhat disquieting. Some will say it changes focus and is unsure what kind of movie it wants to be, but I appreciated the unexpected turns and it kept me on my toes. Michael Parks delivered a minblowing performance, and I can't honestly say any other actors brought it…
Intense but lighthearted, entertaining, great acting, believable character actions and reactions, great makeup and puppetwork, good stunt work, hot nudity with Linnea Quigley, cute scream queens with Jewel Shepard and Beverly Randolph. Can't believe I didn't watch this before now.
