Swaying on a thin line between horror and comedy, the preview for actor/director/comedian/podcaster Kevin Smith's film, Tusk
, was released last night during San Diego's Comic-con. The film, starring Justin Long, is about a young aspiring podcaster who visits Canada to research a new story. Upon doing so, he meets an old man who attempts to surgically transform him into a walrus — yep, that's right, a fucking walrus.
The film has Smith completely out of his dick and fart joke element, but that's not a problem. Most of his fans will see just about anything he puts in front of them. That includes, but is not limited to, Justin Long ripping on Canada and then being horrifically tortured to the haunting sounds of Fleetwood Mac
's "Tusk." But hey, at least the idea, which was conceived on a whim during Kevin Smith's own podcast and written in 20 days, clearly shows that he's hardly ready to turn in the towel.
The film is set to release on September 19th via A24.
