From Writer/Director Kevin Smith (Clerks III, Dogma) comes this wickedly funny modern-day monster movie about a podcaster that gets turned into a walrus. Featuring an all-star cast including Justin Long (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Going The Distance), Michael Parks (Argo, Django Unchained) Haley Joel Osment (Entourage, The Sixth Sense), Genesis Rodriguez (Big Hero 6, Hours) and Johnny Depp (Transcendence, Into The Woods), this comedy horror will have viewers laughing through the terror.
Friends Wallace Bryton (Long) and Teddy Craft (Osment) are two brash Americans who host a popular podcast where they find and mock bizarre viral videos. Wallace ventures to Canada to interview a star of a viral video but the meeting suddenly falls through. He instead decides to follow another hopeful lead in the backwoods of Canada that promises a lifetime of marvelous stories. Wallace's search brings him to the house of a man named Howard Howe (Parks), a strange old seafarer with an incredible past and a disturbing fondness for walruses. Wallace's adventure takes a turn for the worst when he abruptly disappears whilst interviewing Howard, prompting Teddy and girlfriend Allison (Rodriguez) to team with an odd ex-cop (Depp) to frantically search for him.
Featuring a stellar performance by Michael Parks and Justin Long, Tusk is a must-see for all Kevin Smith fans. A truly transformative horror tale that's disturbingly hilarious.
