Ronny, manager of a local comic book store, who is house-sitting at a future historical site, decides to kidnap a woman who he believes is with Satan. He locks her up in the attic of the historical home. He's joined by two thugs, Karl and Eddie, who enjoy tormenting the woman. All they need is her confession which Ronny can record with his digital camcorder. However, their guest begins to alarm her hosts with some very strange behavior. Soon their dreams of becoming rich and famous turn into a violent nightmare. From Christopher Ward, writer/director of Person of Interest.Written by
Fog Warning was a pick and mix movie, namely I went in with no knowledge of the film or even what it was about it.
With a very dark and graphic opening sequence I came to the conclusion happily that it was a horror, and quite an interesting one at that.
It tells the story of a world where a serial killer is on the loose, they become known as that "Vampire" killer because they are draining their victims of blood. A guy begins to suspect a woman of being a vampire so he kidnaps her, imprisons her in a cage and demands she confess. Along with two sidekicks he aims to find lucrative ways of cashing in on catching the killer and outing the worlds first vampire.
Trouble is nothing is quite as it seems and the movie gradually begins to go in directions you may not have expected.
The cast though 100% unknown to me were all fantastic, no weak links here at all. The script is near flawless, and the whole thing looks great.
Though not without its negatives Fog Warning is a fantastic little film but I'd say its as much a thriller as a horror.
Well worth a watch.
Hell of a way to establish a bad guy
Zeus/Ronny is actually entertaining
Something was missing, can't quite put my finger on it
Couple of loose ends
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
This is the kind of film that Hollywood should take notice of
