Ted Raimi gets the green light for Red Light to compete at SITGES


Ted Raimi took to Instagram yesterday to announce that his short horror flick, Red Light has been chosen for SITGES Official Fantastic In-Competition.

Ted Raimi has been busy during the pandemic. He started a podcast dedicated to urban legend weirdness called Route 666, he cut a comedy album called, The Lost Recordings with his buddy, Bruce Campbell and he is one of the stars of the upcoming Dan Mirvish film, 18 ½ .

So, as you can see, the actor has had a full dance card. Yesterday, on his Instagram account, he announced that his gory, short horror film, Red Light has been accepted to the SITGES film festival in Spain.

The chiller will be featured in the Official Fantastic In-Competition. This venture has been a labor of love for Raimi and his good friends, Executive Producer, Marco De Molina and director, Alex Kahuam.

Red Light also marks the first time that Ted Raimi has produced a movie. From what the thespian revealed in his exclusive interview with us in April, this is not a production for the faint of heart.

Without giving too much away, Ted and Brian Krause (Sleepwalkers) play brothers, Stephen and Ian. It is an “intergenerational” horror story about the siblings exacting revenge on an annoying group of millennials.

Fans who are used to the goofy, funny side of Ted are going to be pleasantly surprised. From his performance in the trailer, he is downright terrifying. We promise we won’t scream, Mr. Raimi!

"RED LIGHTAn obnoxious social media influencer and a group of friends on their way to a Halloween party find themselves in a grim world of hell when they run into two twisted brothers. Not even one of their 1 million followers can help them now. USA."

The SITGES Film Festival starts Oct. 8 and runs until Oct. 18. Red Light premieres on the last day of the competition. For more information on how you can get tickets for the online screenings, click on this link.
