Two sceptics, psychologist Dr. Margaret Matheson and physicist Dr. Tom Buckley, are partners in investigating the paranormal. Having exposed a mass of so-called psychics, mediums, faith healers and ghost hunters throughout their career by discovering 'red lights' (clues to how the deceptions are engineered), Buckley wants to turn his attention to the most celebrated psychic of all time, the blind and mystifying Simon Silver, when he comes out of his 30 year retirement. Matheson is quick to dismiss Buckley's case telling him that he doesn't need to be investigated as he was already investigated prior to his retirement. However, the real reason is that she suspects he was behind the death of his most notable critic all those years ago. Buckley ignores Matheson's warnings and enlists his talented student Sally to help him with his investigations, but soon things start to take a sinister turn as Silver becomes increasingly angered at the people questioning his mysterious powers.
This original psychological thriller directed and written by Rodrigo Cortes ('Buried') is a chilling story about the dangers of messing with forces you don't understand. With a star studded cast to keep us on the edge of our seats this summer, 'Red Lights' is certainly not one to watch lightly. To be released in US movie theaters from July 13th 2012.
