After making waves on the film festival circuit, Canadian shocker Red Letter Day is about to receive a wide release, and we have the official trailer and poster for you. The satirical horror offering opens in select cinemas November 1st and lands on Blu-Ray/VOD November 5th from Epic Pictures and DREAD.
The official logline for the film is: While adjusting to a new life in a quiet suburban community, a recently divorced mother (Dawn Van de Schoot), and her two teens receive mysterious red letters instructing them each to kill or be killed. As the bloodshed begins, they find themselves in a race against time to protect the ones they love from the people they thought they knew.
Red Letter Day recently screened at the Los Angeles horror hot-spot Screamfest after its world premiere at the celebrated Cinequest Film Festival. It has screened internationally at FrightFest London, Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, and both Sydney Underground and Calgary Underground Film Festivals.
The film is the feature directorial debut by Cameron Macgowan, who’s previous work has won awards and garnered critical acclaim at international film festivals across the world including SXSW, Fantasia and the Toronto International Film Festival.
Macgowan wrote the neighborhood nightmare, which stars Dawn Van de Schoot (Tom Stone), Hailey Foss (Sarabha: Cry for Freedom), Roger LeBlanc (Painkillers), Tiffany Helm (Friday the 13th: A New Beginning) Kaeleb Zain Gartner, and Peter Strand Rumpel. Red Letter Day was produced by Jason Wan Lim and executive produced by Macgowan, Rhett Miller, Trevor Griffiths, and Amy Griffiths. Kyle Cooper and Sara Corry co-produced.
