Tusk Behind the Scenes Video Explains How it Went from Podcast to Actual Screwed Up Horror Film

Tusk is about to open in selected cinemas in the States and by all accounts its one of the best things Kevin Smith has ever done. Mostly because its totally insane.

The story follows an American podcaster who heads to Canada to interview a crazy old chap who just wants to tell his story. And also have a little chat about a walrus. If your mind works in certain ways you may have some idea about where this is all heading but you can guarantee Smith has some even stranger stories to tell.

In fact, the way the movie came about is its own strange tale, including a real internet ad and chat on a June 2013 episode of the podcast Smith shares with Scott Mosier. That's the SModcast.

The story is utterly insane, so let's let Smith tell it.

It's a real podcast movie, which may or may not end up being a good thing. Early reviews are more or less positive, though mainstream media seems less interested, which probably won't bother Smith.

Tusk is in cinemas now in the United States, there's no word on an Irish release date.
