The trailer for Kevin Smith’s podcast-born horror flick – his first since 2011’s Red State – has arrived online, following its premiere at Comic Con.
Inspired by a Gumtree post and discussed on Smith and Scott Mosier’s Smodcast, Tusk will concern a podcaster (Justin Long) who answers a classified ad from a lonely former seaman (Michael Parks), looking for an interesting story, and finding himself in way over his head.
Anyone familiar with Smith’s now infamous Smodcast episode has a fair idea of the grotesque, Walrus-related area the movie ventures into, but the trailer plays it coy, so we won’t spoil it for you here.
This ain’t no Jersey Girl, that’s for sure. Check it out for yourself below.
Tusk arrives in US cinemas this September, with a local release to hopefully follow.
