Kevin Smith’s Strange New Walrus Horror Film “Tusk”

Walrus Yes! What does it mean? What kind of tale has this interesting movie poster been teasing us for? What is Tusk? According to IMDB, Justin Long’s character is nameless and he and his best friend, Teddy (Haley Joel-Osment) host a podcast together. When Teddy’s best friend and podcast co-host goes missing in the backwoods of Canada, a young guy joins forces with his friend’s girlfriend to search for him. Conceived by the mind of Kevin Smith, Tusk is a truly transformative tale about about a man who wants to make another human into a walrus. Sounds a lot like a Human Centipede-like story but as a Kevin Smith fan (and of course a fan of Red State), I can only assume Smith’s writing will introduce a brand new style of dark and twisted horror.

Tusk will be the first in a trilogy of horror movies. Next up is Yoga-Hosers, which Smith intends to shoot later this year, followed by Moose Jaws. After hosting a panel at Comic-Con 2014 for Tusk, filmmaker Kevin Smith and A24 Films have finally debuted the trailer online:

A24 & Demarest Films will release Smith’s Tusk on September 19th, 2014 later this year. About 8 months ago, Kevin Smith released this picture on his Instagram announcing that they’ve wrapped up filming for Tusk.


More than Human Centipede, this tale reminds me of a certain episode of South Park…


I wouldn’t want to die in Canada either…
