I’m not one of those people that hate on everything Kevin Smith does as a matter of principle. I still love his early films or all their crude, ragtag charm, I thought his open Q&A performances are often hysterical, and I was surprised by just how damn good certain moments were in his previous foray into horror was with RED STATE.
That said, he’s earned a reputation of having a bit of a thin skin when it comes to criticism these past few years, and his bizarre anti-blogger rants seem out of place for a guy that has both built his audience on word of mouth and has readily embraced podcasting as a form of communication.
So I don’t say this lightly, or as some sort of dig but JESUS FUCKING CHRIST ON A CRUTCH, A KILLER WALRUS PICTURE? HAVE WE REACHED THE TIPPING POINT OF IRONIC SHARK HORROR MOVIES AND NEED TO MOVE FIVE RUNGS DOWN THE STUPID SCALE ALREADY?
Can someone give the dudes and ladies from THE BATTERY, RESOLUTION, SOULMATE, EVANGELINE and DYS- all the monies so we can start getting GOOD indie horror movies on the regular? Thanks.
