Kevin Smith wants you to hear the teaser trailer for his Fred Phelps-inspired film Red State, not see it (for now).

Smith played the teaser trailer for an audience of 20, recorded it and released a podcast on Red State of the Nation (listen to it here). I’ve listened to it, and I can say this with confidence: Michael Parks is going to be one helluva Fred Phelps.

In the teaser, Parks is singing the hymn “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,” and it’s creepy as fuck in his deep rasp. Then, you hear Parks say: “I fear God. You better believe I fear God.” It gave me chills.
