While adjusting to a new life in the suburban community of Aspen Ridge, a recently divorced mother of two receives mysterious letters instructing her and her teenage children to kill the people in their letters before they kill them. Paranoia and chaos ensue as the family attempts to rationally deal with an irrational situation. RED LETTER DAY is a satirical horror/thriller that asks the age-old question: Just how well do you know your neighbours?
