Storyline

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.

Excellent horror movie
26 August 2011 | by TdSmth5See all my reviews

It's been a while since I liked a horror movie as much as this one. Much credit goes to Arielle Kebbel who is a great actress and looks even better. The director also knows how to film her.

A bunch of medical students go partying. A freaky loner (Kenneth) who may work at the morgue and who has a crush on Cathering (Kebbel) shows up and films their drinking and drug shenanigans. That could get them in serious trouble. So they decide to get him drunk, drugged. But he's also an epileptic who gets seizures with strobe lights. Once he goes into a seizure and starts choking, the group debates whether to help him or rather save their careers. Arguing against helping him is a bastard named Sean. They decide to dump him in front of a hospital.

It turns out that till he gets help, Kenneth's brain has already suffered enough oxygen deprivation to put him in a coma. Cathering, feeling guilty does research and actually medicates him with trial meds to help him. But something strange happens. People suddenly start killing the group of students one by one and yet remember nothing. It's as if they are possessed and it may be Kenneth who thanks to the trial meds gained some type of power.

Horror movies set in hospitals and with medical students always have a lot of potential. Many turn out disappointing. Red Mist on the other hand turned out great. The kills are gory and violent, there's a bit of nudity, the story is very good, the cast looks good and does a great job. Apparently this movie was filmed in Ireland although you can't tell, there are no outdoor scenes. Not sure what the purpose is to film this elsewhere when they don't take advantage of the setting. Overall, a highly recommended horror movie.

Even the extras are worth seeing as Kebbel actually takes part in most of them and shows herself to be a very fun girl.
