Red Lights is a 2012 Spanish-American thriller film written and directed by Rodrigo Cortés and starring Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver, Cillian Murphy, Toby Jones and Leonardo Sbaraglia.
Synopsis: Veteran paranormal researchers Dr. Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver) and Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) debunk fraudulent statements of ghost whispering, faith healing along with other psychic phenomena by detecting what Matheson calls “red lights,” the subtle tricks behind every staged supernatural occurrence. But as soon as the legendary blind psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro) comes out of retirement after 30 years, his once-fearless adversary Matheson warns Buckley to back off, fearing reprisal from the highly effective Silver.
Decided to discredit Silver, Buckley and his star student (Elizabeth Olsen) use every resource at their disposal to explore the truth behind the charismatic, spoon-bending, mind reader. But Buckley is compelled to reexamine his very own core beliefs as his investigation builds to a mind-blowing conclusion in this taut psychological thriller from award-winning author and director Rodrigo Cortés (Buried).
