I’ve been reading about Yoga Hosers, Kevin Smith’s sorta-sequel sorta-spinoff to his 2014 film Tusk, for more than two years but I still can’t get a handle on just what this movie is going to be like. The film follows 15-year-olds Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie, the two previously unnamed Manitoban convenience store clerks from Tusk. When an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada’s crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party, the pair join forces with Guy Lapointe, the manhunter from Tusk, to fight back. A new clip has been released and for your Saturday enjoyment you can watch it here.
So, what is this thing anyway? Based on this clip, it really wants you to think it’s Scott Pilgrim by way of John Dies At The End. That’s highly unlikely, but Tusk did take place in a weird, alternate universe Canada that theoretically should be a good place for other stories – maybe this will end up being that. We’ll find out soon enough, soonest of all when the film premieres Sunday at midnight during Sundance.
Written and directed by Smith, Yoga Hosers stars Harley Quinn Smith as Colleen McKenzie, Lily-Rose Depp as Colleen Collette, and Johnny Depp as Guy Lapointe, along with Genesis Rodriguez, Austin Butler, and Tyler Posey.
