Having premiered at SXSW last year, Robert Rodriguez latest horror flick has found a new home...
...Via Deadline, Tubi has picked up exclusive streaming rights for Robert Rodriguez's (Planet Terror, From Dusk Till Dawn), new sci-fi horror film, Red 11, as well as the rights to his docuseries, The Robert Rodriguez Film School. According to the site, Red 11 is based on Rodriguez’s experiences in a medical research facility to finance his first feature El Mariachi.
In Red 11:
"College kids turn lab rats to make quick money. The pic’s protagonist Rob (who is assigned the color and number Red 11), is trying to buy his way out of a huge debt to the tune of $7K. But things get surreal when he’s not sure if the hospital is really trying to kill him, or if it’s side effects from the experimental drugs."
As someone who is terrified of hospitals and doctors, this one already unnerves me.
Rodriguez told the site, “I made both Red 11 and the Film School series to celebrate the 25th anniversary of El Mariachi, and this project shows truly actionable methods using my no crew, micro budget filmmaking style that will inspire others to make their own films and have their voices be heard. These are both dream projects of mine, an entertaining culmination of ideas and ruminations on the creative process that also highlight the heightened sense of spirituality that comes from dancing with creativity when there is an absence of the usual financial resources. In other words, ‘low budget fun.’”
Red 11 will hit Tubi later this summer in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
