Yes, "Tusk" is a stunt, a comedic dare, and a fake-looking one at times (which only seems to help, not hinder, its cause). But the darkness at the film's heart is real and gross and truly disturbing.

Justin Long and Johnny Depp join the "Clerks" director for a weird, unpredictable movie that still feels like only Smith could have made it.

Mere words cannot adequately describe Kevin Smith's film - only obscene gestures.

Tusk does for zoos what Jaws did for beaches, A Nightmare on Elm Street did for sleeping, and A Silence of the Lambs did for skin lotion.

The basic idea is great for a horror comedy. The results are just a sick joke that went on too long.

Without a doubt, "Tusk" joins "Cop Out" at the very bottom of Kevin Smith's filmography, being nothing more than a grotesque, unengaging, and overstretched film that's easily a prime candidate for the worst picture of 2014.

It's an excruciating experience...

Tusk is a movie I like and would never recommend, which is actually par for the course when it comes to most of Kevin Smith's creative output.

Tusk is the monster stitched out of a horrific premise and Kevin Smith's brand of downright silliness.

Given how good Smith can be with actors, it's a surprise he didn't make good on the promise of his premise and turn this into a full-blooded comic-horror lark. The first half-hour of Tusk has some terrifically creepy moments that are just not paid off.

Veteran American indie filmmaker Kevin Smith tries his hand at semi-sinister horror with Tusk, a so-so offering where cleverness is often cancelled out by laziness.
October 16, 2014
Parts of it are funny, parts are suspenseful and parts of it - to put it mildly - are hideously awful. Horrible may be a better word than horrific.
October 16, 2014
Nice as it would be to herald Tusk as a return to Smith's bold early period, the movie has a lurching tone and an airless atmosphere.
October 13, 2014
Is Kevin Smith's Tusk the worst movie of the year? Yes. I mean, probably. ... none have made me quite as angrily resentful of a filmmaker as this one did.

Kevin Smith gets his weird on

Smith has always had a weakness for protracted dialogue, and in Parks he has a fitting muse.
October 10, 2014
It's an agreeably insane plot, which is hilarious if you're high, but the problem is the premise doesn't even come close to sustaining a feature length story.
October 10, 2014
I thought this was a really pointless exercise.
October 10, 2014
The way Kevin Smith's mind works is a grotesque wonder to behold.

If Kevin Smith was stoned when he thought up his excellent walrusian nightmare, then marijuana is the best creative medicine.
