Writer/director Creator/KevinSmith's first foray into {{horror}}. After the disappointment of his last big studio film ''CopOut'', Smith decided to finally shoot the script he had written years ago during the shooting of ''Film/ZackAndMiriMakeAPorno'' for the smallest budget he's had since ''Film/ChasingAmy''. Stars [[HeyItsThatGuy a few familiar faces]] and features a few more heavy weight issues than Smith's previous work.

* TakeThat: Towards the Westborough Baptist Church. The plot is more or less "What if the WBC actually hurt people and weren't just annoying?"

* EntitledBastard: When Cheyenne begs Jared to help her get the children out, he refuses and points out the hypocrisy of demanding mercy from him when she and her family were happy enough to kill and torture innocent people due to their religious beliefs.

Added DiffLines:

* WriterOnBoard: An interesting case. While it's certainly a straight example, WordOfGod is that Kevin Smith considers ''Red State'''s religious and sexual politics to have been misstep, as they caused viewers to put [[OvershadowedByControversy too much focus on the those aspects]] rather than taking the film on its own merits. His next attempt at horror, ''Film/{{Tusk}}'', has no political influences at all.
