Synopsis Justin Long impresses....Smith leavens the gags and gross-outs with surprising heart...3 stars out of 4 -- It’s as if MISERY met THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE on the corner of Grotesque and Haunting....What sets TUSK apart is the absolute madness that takes place within the walls of that haunted house.[It] has a genuinely haunting quality as Long's ties to humanity become ever more tenuous. -- Grade: B+TUSK unquestionably belongs to Parks, and to Long...who ends up having the most emotionally and physically demanding role of his career…An irreverent American podcaster interviews a Canadian adventurer whose wild tale of survival at sea masks sinister intentions in this twisted horror comedy from writer/director Kevin Smith (CLERKS, RED STATE). Wallace (Justin Long) and Teddy (Haley Joel Osment) are the wisecracking co-hosts of The Not-See Party, a popular podcast focused on bizarre viral videos and humorous interviews with the internet-famous. The concept is simple - Wallace travels the country conducting outlandish videos, and returns to their make-shift studio to share his stories with Teddy and the listeners. When Wallace ventures to Canada for an interview that falls through at the last minute, he stops at a local bar for a drink and finds a flyer posted by an old adventurer (Michael Parks) who seeks to share his stories with anyone who will listen. Arriving at the old man's secluded estate under the shroud of darkness, Wallace is promptly treated to a hot cup of tea, and a strange tale of being rescued by a walrus following a shipwreck at sea. It all seems like the perfect fodder for an unforgettable podcast -- that is until Wallace blacks out and regains consciousness bound to a wheelchair. Meanwhile, as Teddy and Wallace's girlfriend venture north to investigate his sudden disappearance, the old man subjects his terrified guest to a bizarre medical procedure that will transform more than just his perception of one of the sea's most majestic creatures.
