Sizzling and Thrilling!

Diabolical-Engrossing!-Entertaining!

Director Michael Wechsler weaves a masterful tale that reminds us of how thrillers should be. Judd Hirsch's performance is so powerful you simply cannot take your eyes off the screen.

Caroline Lagerfelt with a class and style rarely scene these days enhances both Mr. Hirsch's performance and Mr. Wechsler's production so much so that you crave her presence when she is absent from the screen.

With the film world flooded at the moment with "independent movies" it is with a breath of pleasure to take The Red Robin Ride. This is a textbook example of what audiences today are looking for from Indeoendent Directors.

The Red Robin Winner of Multiple Awards around the Globe is an incredible "Old School" thriller!
