More Info:
  • Brad Wheeler

    A parable that concerns the monstrous conduct of humans, Tusk is a salute to storytelling, a comic send-up of Canadiana – with awesome references to Degrassi and Duplessis – and a terrorizing vehicle for sharply conceived absurdity.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Clark Collis

    Tusk lands close to Human Centipede territory in gross-out-ness — a warning, not a complaint — but it also has a genuinely haunting quality as Long's ties to humanity become ever more tenuous.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Despite its ludicrous turns, the movie benefits from the far-fetched events for its sheer willingness to go there, not unlike Smith's goofy, self-deprecating public persona.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    An utterly bizarre, weirdly compelling story of manimal love that stakes out its own brazen path somewhere between “The Fly” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”

    Variety Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    This is not a movie you forget about as you’re heading for the exit. I’m not sure it’s a movie you’ll ever forget.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    There are strange, midnight movie pleasures found in Smith's movie.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    It has a game cast, it’s watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    At it’s best, Tusk is outlandishly unforgettable.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's ultimately Parks who carries Tusk, and carries it farther than it should have gone.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • John DeFore

    The picture is deeply weird, with an entrancement factor almost entirely dependent on the performance of Michael Parks.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    There is a glee to the filmmaking that is matched by a greater sense of control than I've seen from Smith before, and while I think the film is wildly uneven at times, I think that's also the point.

  • Peter Travers

    Tusk is a mesmerizing mess that will make Joe Popcorn yak. Jay and Silent Bob will love it.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Both overindulgent and the writer-director's most fascinatingly strange movie to date.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    The result is so out there that you can imagine Mr. Smith and his collaborators rolling in the aisles at their own preposterousness. If you can find your inner 16-year-old, you might just join them.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Tusk is alternately amusing, appalling and frustrating. It’s also unique.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    The sheer insanity of the premise alone is enough to make Tusk a surreal hoot.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    Tusk is revolting, but that’s entirely the point of Kevin Smith’s admirably imaginative and utterly disgusting latest feature, a twisted fairy tale that trades on gross-out gags and visual shockers instead of actual story. Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Tusk is not a particularly good movie, but the vivid anxiety dream at its heart makes it one of the most personal films this writer-director has ever made.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Simon Abrams

    Tusk is bearable thanks in no small part to its game cast, particularly character actor Michael Parks's Vincent Price-esque baddy. Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Tusk is kind of terrible, annoying and self-congratulatory in all the ways we’ve come to expect from Smith (without even, say, any of the silly sweetness of the 2008 Zack and Miri Make a Porno). But Tusk is at least trying to be about something.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Thomas Lee

    Crazy plot aside, Tusk offers some thought-chewing ideas on human duality, both good/evil and man/beast.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The chief argument regarding his (Smith) "Human Centipede" riff is pretty basic: good trash or stupid trash? I'd say roughly half and half.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • William Goss

    This feature-length joke isn’t for us so much as it’s on us for holding out hope that sheer weirdness might be enough to sustain this lark through to its violent finish.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    Even for a fairly low-budget movie, Tusk doesn’t feel thought-through, or focused enough.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    Like most self-conscious attempts at a “midnight movie,” Tusk lacks the conviction that would make it anything more than an outré curiosity; it’s essentially a filmed dare, combined with fan service.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    It’s been a while since there’s been this much dead air onscreen; over and over, Smith sets up a sequence, lets his actors shpritz, and stands by as the energy fades into giggly catatonia.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    There’s a fine horror film inside Tusk, but it’s only 20 minutes long. The rest is just blubber.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    In this not-even-faintly scary, rarely funny horror comedy, Smith is still sucking down big gulps of empty calories and hoping we’ll laugh at his belch.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    It suggests the worst possible gene splice of a barbed Terrance and Phillip South Park appearance, Fargo's blithe condescension, and the smuggest of Quentin Tarantino pastiches.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Tusk seems to harbor no grander ambitions than to create a gross-out gag.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    It's not even that the film shifts wildly in tone as much as the fact that none of those tones work at all: the horror parts aren't scary and, surprisingly for Smith, the comedy bits aren't funny.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    This tonal mishmash is a misfire of literally gross proportions.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    Tusk is a step backward into an insular world. True, it will probably play well to gore fans, and that dedicated audience who already cheer everything Smith does.
