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 realises 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.

The dedicated medical student Catherine (Arielle Kebbel) is invited by seven colleagues to go to a bar to party. The slow Kenneth (Andrew Lee Potts), who works at the hospital morgue, has a crush on Catherine and asks whether he can walk her home. Cat declines to the invitation, but her colleagues humiliate Kenneth. However, he shows a footage in his cellular showing the student Sean (Martin Compston) stealing drugs from the hospital pharmacy. Sean convinces his colleagues that Kenneth is a liability to their futures and prepares a drink with drugs to give to Kenneth expecting to delete the footage from the cellular. However Kenneth is epileptic; he has a seizure and enters into coma. The students drop Kenneth on the street to avoid any connection with them. When Catherine learns that the doctor will disconnect the apparatuses from Kenneth, she decides to use an experimental cocktail of drugs in Kenneth. Soon she discovers that the drugs instead of healing Kenneth, has a side effect that is causing an out-of-body experience to him. Further, Kenneth is using his power to revenge against the students that caused his brain damage and put him in coma.
"Freakdog" is a surprisingly good horror movie with an original story. Arielle Kebbel has good performance and is convincing in the role of Catherine. Unfortunately Kenneth is poorly developed since he is the key character. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Dominador de Corpos" ("Controller of Bodies")
