Tomorrow, Tuesday March 15, filmmaker Kevin Smith will be presenting his new film Red State at the Warner Theater. Smith, famous for comedic films like Clerks and Chasing Amy as well as being the quiet half of Jay and Silent Bob, departs from his usual humorous territory to dabble in horror. Red State centers around characters inspired by Westboro Baptist Church and its founder, Fred Phelps. Westboro Baptist has achieved national infamy for its controversial protests at the funerals of U.S. servicemen.
