Have you been dying to see another person transform into a Walrus?
If there is one thing we can all agree with, Tusk, is one of the most bizarre horror movies.... No, one of the most bizzare movies of any genre, I have ever seen. Even by Kevin Smith's standards, this one is highly unusual. During a Twitch session this week, Smith explained that he has an idea for a potential Tusk 2 while also noting that “it’s possible” we could see the return of Wallace the Walrus.
“I’m shocked we got away with Tusk one but I’ll be honest with you, I do have a story for Tusk 2,” Smith revealed. “The great Michael Parks, who played Howard Howe, the guy who turns Wallace into a Walrus, sadly passed away a couple of years ago. Amazing actor that I got to work with twice. But, in the ending of Tusk, if I wanted to be a commercial filmmaker which apparently I’ve never wanted to be, I would have ended the film when Guy La Pointe comes in and raises his shotgun and you’d just hear the walrus [scream] and we cut to black.”
He continued, “There’s a version of Tusk 2 that you do where… you cut to the present, and somebody else gets sucked into the spider’s web. The house, you hear stories, and when you get to the house, the new Howard Howe is Wallace, who has gotten out of the walrus trappings and stuff and is obviously disturbed by his entire ordeal and is now doing it to others. So there’s a way to do Tusk 2 where Justin becomes Michael Parks’s character. Wallace becomes, sort of, the new Howard Howe. So yea, that’s possible. Tusk 2 is possible. Obviously I’ve thought about it.”
