Bizarre meets comedy – Clerk’s creator Kevin Smith takes on horrorOctober 21, 2014
Tusk, the latest from director/actor/comedian Kevin Smith starts screening in selected theaters across America, and as many other human beings which saw the trailer (or the whole movie), I too can’t help to wonder: is this Human Centipede’s spiritual successor?
The movie stars “Mac” guy Justin Long, who plays a pod-cast host going to Manitoba, Canada where he gets kidnapped by a demented guy (Michael Parks) who wants to ‘transform’ him into a walrus. Yup, can’t get more bizarre than that.
But, as pointed out by viewers, Tusk is actually a satirical take on “America’s perception on Canada”, having more inside Canadian jokes than your average Cracked article.
Jordan Crucchiola (WIRED) salutes Kevin Smith’s try, stating that “our movies fell into a rut and instead of cashing in on the same old schtick because Smodcast fans will follow you anywhere, you took a gamble and gave audiences a new part of yourself to consider, and appreciate.”
As a bonus, you have Sixth Sense’s kid Haley Joel Osment also playing a role in this movie along with Johnny Depp, so, yeah.
Post Scriptum: I don’t want to die in Canada also.
