Director Rodrigo Cortes Talks ‘Red Lights’ Plot Switch In This Featurette Teaser

Red Lights - 1

From Buried director Rodrigo Cortes comes Red Lights, the Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver, Elizabeth Olsen, Toby Jones and Robert De Niro starrer arriving on DVD + Digital Copy & Blu-ray October 2. Below we’ve landed an exclusive interview featurette where Cortes speaks on flipping the beliefs of the characters mid-film.

Veteran paranormal researchers Dr. Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver) and Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) debunk fraudulent claims of ghost whispering, faith healing and other psychic phenomena by detecting what Matheson calls “red lights,” the subtle tricks behind every staged supernatural occurrence. But when the legendary blind psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro) comes out of retirement after 30 years, his once-fearless adversary.

Matheson warns Buckley to back off, fearing reprisal from the powerful Silver. Determined to discredit Silver, Buckley and his star student (Elizabeth Olsen) use every tool at their disposal to uncover the truth behind the charismatic, spoon-bending, mind reader. But Buckley is forced to reexamine his own core beliefs as his quest builds to a mind-blowing conclusion in this taut psychological thriller from award-winning writer and director Rodrigo Cortés (Buried).

    Red Lights was excellent. I think it’s being unfairly reviewed as a horror film, which its not, what it is is a character piece about concepts usually seen within the horror genre. If you go in not expecting a horror flick then there’s no reason not to like it, the acting is top notch, and it has a great story.
