Cast:Stephen Dillane, Andrew Lee Potts, Sarah Carter, Martin Compston
A young doctor in a US hospital administers a powerful and untested cocktail of drugs to a coma victim. But instead of curing him, it triggers a powerful "out-of-body" experience and enables the patient,a depraved and dangerous loner to inhabit other people's bodies and, through them, take revenge on the bullying medical students who were accidentally responsible for his condition. The doctor, who was herself a part of this group, is also targeted and as her colleagues are singled out and relentlessly picked off, she realizes that she can trust no-one friend or stranger as this comatose killer moves in and out of bodies at will, getting ever closer as his murderous supernatural powers increase.
Red Mist aka Freakdog looked very promising by the trailer so I was eager to sit down to watch this new horror film from Director Paddy Breathnach. The film may not be all that original but I was certainly entertained till the very end. It has everything you want in a horror film, gore,blood,killings and some very attractive lead actors that can act which is always a bonus in this genre. I read the movie was done on a very limited budget and if true I got to say this was even more impressive. Everything production wise is very well done and the technical work including the lighting ect.. really help set the atmosphere. Like I stated before Red Mist doesn't offer anything really new but it succeeds with a clever plot and is filled with some very nice twists and turns, also the execution by Director, Paddy Breathnach is flawless. I enjoyed this a lot more than his previous film "Shrooms". I got to say with all the new horror movies coming out this was one of the better ones I have seen recently, it is a solid effort in story-telling and the cast really brings the flick up another level. If you are into the horror genre and need a fix then I highly recommend picking this up today. The DVD comes with the Special Features:
