Kevin Smith makes a thoroughly Kevin Smith Movie (by andrew_tepfenhart)
To be quite honest, I went into Kevin Smiths world premiere of Tusk not knowing what to think; should I take this movie as comedy or a thorough horror? The truth is the flick is both and Kevin Smith has done something I have never seen before.When quirky mean-spirited pod caster Wallace Brighton Justin Long journeys to Canada to interview weird and wacky people not all is as he expects as this movie proves that not all Canadians are nice.Howard Howe is hands down the best character I have watched in a while and its not surprising when he is played by Michael Parks. Howe is in love with his <more>
stories but after a while you begin to wonder if they are even real.Parks shifts from funny to terrifying to just plain weird will stay with you long after the film ends. He also happens to be immensely quotable in this flick "are you really mourning your humanity,I don't understand! Who in the hell would want to be human" or "We must discover if man is truly a walrus at heart" stayed with me long after the credits rolled.Look I can't really review this movie without giving to much away, its a flick about a guy who turns the apple guy into a walrus. But that is why you have to see it. I too thought the concept was bizarre but the movie works and hats off to Kevin Smith for making one of my favorites of the year.
Not just another Kevin Smith Movie (by mattlewisu)
After reading other peoples reviews I am shocked that these people call themselves "Kevin Smith" fans. Not saying everything Kevin Smith has done has been a gem, but this movie Tusk is way different.While it was derived from a Pot induced Smodcast, Kevin Smith took seriously the idea of making a real movie not his usual dick and fart type. Characters had depth, characters had emotions.Tusk didn't let us down with a few nutty characters but the premise was to stay focused on the plot and that he did.Tusk is different and its a great film, if you go into it hoping for another <more>
Clerks, you are going to be extremely disappointed. Go in with an open mind and you will find yourself enthralled.
Great horror comedy if you understand that its COMEDY (by sca-52350)
OK so i see a lot of hate for this movie and its clear most people don't understand it. Its a comedy. Its very good at what its trying to do. My wife and i were in tears laughing at this movie, we thought it was one of the funniest we have seen in years. If you like horror comedy than this is for you. If you have a weak sense of humor or are easily grossed out don't even bother. You ll just add to the perception that its not a good movie which isn't true. Just don't take it seriously like the idiots around here and you'll love it. God i saw one review complaining about how <more>
the end could never legally happen. Duh. Its a joke. Great movie. 10/10 if your not an idiot.
Bound to be polarizing - it's twisted and perverse, but very Smith-esque (by ArchonCinemaReviews)
Kevin Smith's vanity film Tusk is sure to be polarizing: either you will love it or hate it, there won't be any gray area. Archon Cinema Reviews happen to love it's crazy ass.Tusk is a half comedy and half horror film where podcaster Wallace Bryton goes missing while in Canada out looking for content for his radio show.Wallace's cringe-humor podcast with his best friend Teddy revolves around Wallace going out interviewing zany people and then telling Teddy about it, the podcast is aptly called the Not-See Party. Wallace ventures out to the great white north of Canada to the <more>
boonies of Manitoba for an especially gnarly story. When it falls through, Wallace finds a plan-B and decides to interview this odd and mysterious seafarer Howard Howe. At this point Tusk turns from straight comedy to straight horror when Wallace goes MIA and his BFF and girlfriend Allison team up to look for him.If you don't know the idea behind Tusk, Kevin Smith came up with it while talking on his own podcast with his own friend. Can the film be more of a vanity project under these circumstances? I don't think so! Smith makes the film he wants with complete disregard for appeasing the viewers – and it pays off big for his fans and others who are simply dark and twisty in their gooey center.Tusk is neither comedic-horror or horrific-comedy and a clear and defined line can be drawn or spliced in the film where the two shant meet. The first thirty minutes contain joke after masterful joke playing into American stereotypes of Canadians and Canadia in general. The latter portion making up about an hour of the film is perverse horror. It is unnerving and unsettling with completely weird and off-kilter imagery.Justin Long, who plays Wallace, is the quintessential American who just can't keep his mouth shut and is marvelous. Michael Parks was made to play serial killer Howard Howe and both Long and Parks are perfect together. Relative newcomer to mainstream audiences Genesis Rodriguez is smart, beautiful and most importantly believably real as Allison, girlfriend to the consummate nerd that is Wallace. Even Haley Joel Osment is the perfect beta-geek as Wallace's bestie Teddy. There is an A-lister in Tusk that I think should remain a surprise cameo until you watch the film. With that said, Kevin Smith's Tusk definitely could have done without it and it was a massive distraction that cheapened the horror half of the film. If you heard about the cameo then you should know who I am talking about.Kevin Smith's Tusk is a film for the oddball freaks, when it comes down to it, but nobody can say it's not original. A good litmus test as to whether Tusk will be your cup of tea, in our opinion: If you like the 1981 original The Evil Dead or From Dusk Till Dawn's overboard but fresh take on their associated genres especially when they were initially released and before they garnered cult-like acclaim then you probably won't dislike Tusk.Check out our WEBSITE for all the 2014 horrors and recent releases reviews in FULL.
Good, but needless to say not for everyone. (by unitythroughterror)
While I have seen an abundance of films like these, gory horror and body horror isn't really my thing. I prefer paranormal based on a true story types, but this film - while I can't say I enjoyed it - was certainly impressive on an epic scale as a minimalist horror film. I definitely heard about Kevin Smith's Red State which caused quite the hurrah a couple years back. When I saw the trailer to this film, they slyly didn't show ANY of the transformed Justin Long - something in marketing that is pretty much unheard of these days. Not a single frame of what he becomes was in any <more>
of the marketing campaigns. That sparked my interest. What were they hiding? What did it look like? What had crazy cat Kevin Smith cooked up as the humanoid walrus hybrid? It also seemed like one of those talk of the town movies, a la The Human Centipede, where you just had to see it to stay in the social loop in my case tortured artists and theatery people . Well, well, well. What an interesting viewing experience it has been. I can say - without giving ANYTHING away - the sight of one of the most bizarre duels in movie-making history is worth the wait. The images are shocking - and I remember people both laughing and gasping when the curtain is lifted and we see the film's "walrus." Michael Parks is a true sadist - charming, unreliable, hilarious, and sick. Justin Long's hatable nature as a self-involved, raunchy podcaster is still something we can kind of miss once the transformation begins. The film is an odd allegory for how, as human beings, we have lost our humanity. Oddly enough, without giving anything away, humanity is achieved like never before at the end - while not exactly in the way everyone was expecting. It's not too disturbing but then again I'm pretty desensitized so horror virgins beware. This could give you nightmares. Funny, disgusting, ridiculous, insane, intelligently inane, and absolutely first class independent film midnight movie making that was backed by a major studio. Just go see the thing. Of all the things Kevin Smith has done, it may just be his masterpiece.
This movie is like the only one or two movies that I know that makes the mind, that isn't predisposed to treating and satiating itself with the overproduced fodder force fed to the masses, think. Sure, its a horror flick but what should be more horrifying is the realization that the plot and characters aren't far fetched. Also disturbing is to realize that a lot of people will consider this as farce or "gore porn".There are relationships like those in the movie hiding in front of our face in various forms that we don't recognize or of which we are fully aware and do <more>
nothing and intend to keep as they serve some sick purpose under the guise of something harmless as sustenance.Brilliant, a masterpiece.
The very definition of "not for everyone", Tusk is an oddball, absurd, twisted midnight movie that plays more like a demented fever dream than a horror or comedy film. I'd never recommend it to anyone I intend to ever speak to again.Here are the reasons why you won't like it:1 It's unexpectedly surreal, with little interest in the laws of reality, or at least modern medicine and police work. And it's not directed in an obviously surreal, arty fashion like, say, a David Lynch picture, which makes it even harder to wrap your head around.2 It's got an odd tone. <more>
There's comedy, sure, but it's mostly a slower, more cringe- inducing variety than Kevin Smith is typically known for. There's suspense, and a bit of gross-out, but the film evokes more unease than outright scares, and the grotesqueries are more evocative of a nightmare after eating one too many sliders than, say, Saw. And it swings freely between the two with no warning at all.3 You haven't seen Tod Browning's "Freaks", a classic bit of cult cinema that Smith has made references to in other films. In fact, you probably don't even know it exists. Cinephiles will notice rather direct references to many of Kev-O's other favorite movies as well, including Silence of the Lambs and Jaws. 4 You're Canadian, and your country and culture are No Laughing Matter.If for some reason none of the above applies to you, may I recommend "Tusk"? It's oddball, gonzo, at times self indulgent and slow, but also occasionally very funny and strangely thought-provoking, provided you're willing to go along for the ride. It'll make an impression...especially if your short-term memory "isn't what it used to be."
Brilliant.This movie was "about" a young pod-cast host who gets kidnapped while visiting Manitoba, Canada to do an interview, and is tormented and tortured by a man who wants to turn him into a Walrus he credits with saving his life.But this movie is about America's perception of Canada, a satirical perception Canadians have of Canada, and a hilarious bringing to life of an idea hashed out on a pod-cast with Kevin Smith.I laughed start to finish. The comedy, as you can expect, is amazing. If you're Canadian, even more so the subtle Canadian jokes were unreal . But at the <more>
same time, the movie is terrifying bordering on disturbing. And even in the terrifying scenes, there is some subtlety in them that is hilarious.So brilliant. So well done. So fun!
An innovating cult movie for decades to come (by kluseba)
''Tusk'' is a movie that goes off the beaten paths. It's a potential cult movie which will be adored by some and despised by others for decades to come. It's almost impossible to have a neutral or no opinion on this controversial movie. It's not a question about getting it or not, it's simply a matter of personal tastes.The story is quickly told. An American pod-cast host ends up in the isolated mansion of an old seaman in Manitoba who wants to share some stories about his life. One gets to know that the old fool is in fact a dangerous serial killer who <more>
despises mankind because he got intimidated, raped and tortured by the society after the brutal killing of his parents. The only thing that has ever shown respect to him was a walrus that saved him from a shipwreck in Northern Russia. In order to survive on an isolated island, the serial killer had to make the decision to kill his saviour just hours before he got saved. He regrets that decision and in order to relive this pivotal moment in his life again and to take revenge on a society that made him suffer all life long, the serial killer kidnaps, mutilates and tortures young men to transform them into walruses. While the imprisoned pod-cast host gets now mentally and physically unstable and begins more and more to act like a wild animal, his grounded partner and his cheating girlfriend realize that he is in danger. They arrive in Canada and team up with a drug addict and ex-police officer from Quebec to save their friend or what remains of his human body and soul.The film is a grotesque that mixes black comedy, drama, horror and thriller elements all at once. The movie has many changes of tone. When you see the two main characters fooling around, the tone is humorous. A few moments later, you assist a burial after a suicide and the tone gets accusatory. The movie then cuts to an actress who is crying her heart out and complains about her cheating boyfriend as the tone gets depressing. Seconds later, she herself cheats on her boyfriend and the whole scene suddenly feels ironical. This film is filled with these fascinating changes of tones. You constantly change your mind about the different characters as well. The main character looks like a superficial idiot during his show in the beginning of the movie. His partner looks like the friendlier and smarter guy. His girlfriend looks like a confident, faithful and serious person. The villain of the story looks like an innocent old fool. Thirty minutes later, the main character has some intellectual dialogues and proves that he is not as dumb as one might have thought. His partner betrays his best friend by sleeping with his girlfriend who suddenly looks fragile, superficial and unfaithful. The old fool has become an intimidating criminal with a horrible past. It's not just the tone that changes, the overall mood also does. What starts as a juvenile comedy movie in the key of ''The Interview'' turns into a bleak body horror film like ''The Human Centipede'', gets a touch of a crime comedy movie like ''Good Cop, Bad Cop'' and becomes an existential and nearly philosophical drama like the ending of ''I Saw The Devil'' for example. Those who say that this movie is bland, superficial and thoughtless are wrong. This movie has more memorable scenes than ten others together. It's a matter of taste whether you like these scenes or not. The scenes of the burial and the close-up on the crying girlfriend shook me up. The ring-tone of the main character's cell phone and the weird dialogue between the French Canadian police officer and the serial killer in front of a shack made me laugh out loud. The torture scenes in the old mansion and the closing part in a zoo made me feel disgust, horror and sadness at once. The movie also includes many cultural elements in a humorous way. The idea of including the topic of Duplessis' orphans in the movie was brilliant and shows that the makers of the movie know what they are talking about. The food topic and especially the details about poutines in the movie were completely absurd and hilarious at the same time. The discussions about hockey and especially the Quebec Nordiques were the best jokes about Quebeckers I have ever heard and I have witnessed many lukewarm attempts.I'm going to admit that this movie is difficult. Those who are looking for a typical American comedy movie might get shocked by the explicit torture scenes. Those who are looking for a sinister body horror film may not dig the humorous parts. This film is not for closed-minded and light-hearted people who just want to get entertained. This movie will haunt you long after it ended in one way or another. All the things mentioned above make this film something really special. It's one of the few movies that still try to innovate at all costs. The more I think about the movie, the more I appreciate it and feel like watching it over and over again. If my review intrigued you and you consider yourself an open-minded and tough cineast, I can only warmly recommend you this incredibly entertaining mixture of the joyful and the woeful. For anyone else, try this at your own costs but don't tell me I didn't warn you.
