How could you not be interested in a movie about a creepy guy who wants to turn a podcaster who comes to interview him into a walrus? Unsurprisingly, writer/director Kevin Smith has admitted to coming up with the story to his upcoming movie, Tusk, while being stoned. And now we luckily have a bat-shit crazy trailer to give a taste of what his weed-induced mind has conjured up:
Obviously more in the horror/comedy range than straight horror, Tusk looks like loads of fun. Shades of The Human Centipede are evident, but what Kevin Smith has come up (at least from the trailer) looks like it will definitely be in it’s own lane. I dig Justin Long, and seeing an older and more plump Hayley Joel Osment is a nice surprise – but it’s another name that is being associated with this movie that’s causing a bit of a stir. Johnny Depp. That’s right folks, Johnny Depp’s in a movie about a guy trying to turn another guy into a walrus. Hopefully that upped your anticipation a little more as it did for me. Kevin Smith’s Tusk will be out on September 19th – stay tuned for more info and reviews rolling in soon!
