NEW ON DVD

Now Out: College-Buddy Hookups, Berlin Hustlers And Kevin Smith’s Red State


Red State
($27.98 DVD, $29.99 Blu-ray, Lionsgate)
When three horny college boys are kidnapped by Amos Tobin (Michael Parks) and his band of homophobic and homicidal religious fundamentalists, any hope for rescue lies in a Waco-esque standoff involving trigger-happy federal agents led by John Goodman.

Writer/director/bear icon Kevin Smith expertly skewers Fred Phelps and his “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church in this pitch-black satire/horror flick. While Red State is occasionally gruesome and bleak, the homophobes do get their well-deserved bloody comeuppance. Okay Kevin, we officially forgive you for Cop Out.
