Red Pill

From the mind of Tony award winning actress Tonya Pinkins comes a progressive dystopia nightmare. Shot by cinematographer John Hudak Jr., Red Pill is a visually stunning metaphor for all our fears and a reminder that there are worse things than death. Halloween weekend of the 2020 election, six old friends ride into red country armed with humor and naiveté.  When they meet an immovable force, their plans are thwarted and their fight to win the election becomes a fight for their lives. Six progressives, one deadly weekend!

For Mature Audiences(Horror/Satire).

7:00 p.m. Talkback with Director, Cast and Crew
