Remember Paddy Breathnach’s Red Mist, his enigmatic follow up to “>Shrooms (DVD review)? It was announced in passing a few times, but to date nothing official has been given out as to what it’s actually about.
The film’s IMDB page has been updated with an official synopsis finally, so check it out: 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.
Sounds pretty cool to me, if not wholly original; as in most cases I’m sure it’ll be all about the execution. Arielle Kebbel (The Grudge 2), Sarah Carter (Skinwalkers), Andrew Lee Potts (Return to House on Haunted Hill) and MyAnna Buring (Doomsday, “>interview) star in Red Mist, which went into post production last month.
