I've seen this movie described as "the greatest achievement in horror since Blair Witch" and, on this site, someone called it "the very definition of horror in its purest form". At least there was SOME truth to it all, I found this movie exactly as scary as Blair Witch. Which is to say, not scary at all.
I don't think it's a spoiler now to say that this movie has creatures in it. The thing about the creatures is that…
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…
Just awestruck at this film. I had no idea how they would top Hot Fuzz, but they did. Truly surprised me. Their trademark attention to detail is maintained, I loved the characters and their arcs, acting was fantastic. If I had one complaint it would be that it follows a very similar progression to Hot Fuzz, but I was honestly too entertained to care.
