The first official images from Kevin Smith‘s upcoming horror flick Red State have hit the web. And if you’re looking for answers as to what the film is all about (in the realm of plot, tone and visual style), you’re not going to find it here. A few character shots is all we could gather from the photos, which were discovered on the Sundance Film Festival website this week. But it’s not all bad. John Goodman is still in the thing, looking startled as ever. He stars alongside a few knowns and several unknowns in Kevin Smith’s return to doing his own thing (after the studio-funded disaster that was Cop Out.) In short, he’s reason enough to be optimistic. Even if he’s just sitting there.

“A group of misfits encounter extreme fundamentalism in Middle America.”

That’s really all the logline we’ll need for this one, correct? Check out all of the images below, courtesy of the Sundance website (via Shock Till You Drop.)
