Red Letter Day, DREAD

From Epic Pictures and DREAD, Red Letter Day is a knockout gripping thriller starring Dawn Van de Schoot and Hailey Foss. Making his feature directorial debut, filmmaker Cameron Macgowan delivers a wicked and fresh twist on the whole home invasion concept. 

While adjusting to a new life in a quiet suburban community, a recently divorced mother (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.

Here are 5 reasons why you should see Red Letter Day:

5) Dawn Van de Schoot!

Dawn Van de Schoot is simply amazing to watch as the loving and hard-working Melanie Edwards. Melanie’s love for her children feels real and genuine thanks to Schoot’s onscreen charisma. Striving to be strong, Melanie (Schoot) has to face human nature’s dark side if she wants her two kids to survive.

4) Hailey Foss!

Hailey Foss has a rebellious spirit and a punkish attitude as Madison Edwards. Madison (Foss) struggles to reconnect with her mother after the divorce as she strives for her own independence. There’s a great scene of character buildup as Madison (Hailey) and Melanie (Schoot) play a video game together.

3) Kaeleb Zain Gartner!

Kaeleb Zain Gartner does a great job playing the quirky comic relief. Timothy Edwards (Gartner) is unluckily caught in the middle of his mother and sister’s quarrel. The movie itself hits another level when all three leads share the scene together.

2) The Suburbs!

The cinematography by Rhett Miller captures the glossy look of suburbia. Everything looks pristine thanks to the suburban homes, gardens, and picket fences. The color red, whether its the letters or the blood, really pops out at the eyes.

1) A Twisted Family Drama!

Part home invasion and part dysfunctional family drama, Red Letter Day boasts of three amazing leads to watch. The Blu-ray release of Red Letter Day features audio commentary with director, executive producer and cinematographer, and special exclusive featurettes. 

Red Letter Day opens in select cinemas November 1st, 2019 and on Blu-Ray and VOD November 5th, 2019.
