Louis Theroux Pre-Empts Kevin Smith's Horror Film

Last weekend, BBC2 showed a new Louis Theroux episode in which he spent time with the family of Topeka, Kansas Minister Fred Phelps. It was really quite horrifying. These people were shockingly hateful.

Now, Kevin Smith has revealed to Rotten Tomatoes UK that a Phelps-like monster is the focus of his upcoming horror film. What's more, he's given the name away: Red State.

For background on Phelps' Westboro Church, courtesy of Louis Theroux and countless pirates, check out the relevant clips on YouTube.

Thanks to AICN for the pointer.
