Red Mist Gets Freaky

Red Mist now FreakdogIn news that just kinda came out of nowhere, Fangoria got word that Shrooms (review) director Paddy Breathnach’s follow up feature that has been commonly known as Red Mist will be undergoing a name change, to Freakdog of all things. It turns out that the title just wasn’t going to work well when put on ads and posters, so, according to producer Simon Bosanquet.

Even more interesting is that Breathnach hadn’t planned on re-entering the horror genre so rapidly, “the supernatural element in Freakdog intrigued me. I also loved the journey of the central character, Catherine, who goes from a doctor committed to saving life to one taking lives in the most violent way imaginable. That narrative drive, coupled with the unusual plot surprises, setpiece killings and major stuntwork, made it an interesting challenge.

Freakdog started rolling back in February with an eye pleasing cast of Sarah Carter, Stephen Dillane and Arielle Kebbel.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
