I’m a big Kevin Smith guy, I make no bones about it. I’m also a big horror guy, again no bones made. So, Kevin Smith and horror is always great in my eyes, especially after Smith dipped his toes into the murky world of horror with the brilliant Red State. Now comes the first trailer for his walrus-heavy horror, Tusk.
Tusk centres on the relationship between a man and a sea beast. Michael Parks plays a guy that was once lost at sea and becamebestest buds with a walrus, so much so that upon being rescued his life had a big gap to fill. Returning to land, Parks character puts out an advert for somebody to come and live with rent-free. The only catch? This particularly tenant has to dress up and act like a walrus at certain times of the day. Justin Long plays a podcaster who is tasked with interviewing the strange old seadog. Things all then take a turn for the sinister. The movie also features Genesis Rodriguez and Haley Joel Osment.
A24 are handling distribution of Tusk, with a selected cinematic run starting on 19th September. The flick will then be widely available on VOD and home release.
