    Kevin Smith’s “TUSK” to star Johnny Depp?

    Fans of RED STATE director Kevin Smith have had a surreal experience following the development of his sophomore fright flick, TUSK. A body horror jokingly conceived on Smith’s podcast, SModcast, while riffing on a real-life classified ad, Smith called off his impending retirement and churned out a script for TUSK last summer, wrapping production by the fall and being secured for release by UNDER THE SKIN distributor A24 Films shortly after. And while Smith’s social media presence has kept the horror community up to speed regarding the film, including announcements of the cast to some disturbing concept art, Smith has intentionally shrouded the identity of who would be playing one of the film’s protagonists, a Canadian detective named Guy LaPointe.

    “HOLLISTON: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON” (Blu-ray Review)

    Few genres are as subjective as comedy. Since tastes are defined by culture, shared experiences and one’s threshold for silliness, comedy is rarely considered to be as inclusive in terms of subject matter or execution. To this point, one could look at horror as the flip side of the coin, an inclusive genre that often leans more on technical skill to achieve universally effective frights. Therefore, when horror and comedy mix, the filmmakers must carefully gel these aesthetics in order to appease both the objective lovers of horror and the subjective fans of comedy.
