4.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly good horror
Andrew Lee Potts; the lovable buffoon of tv's 'Primeval', shows he can act as he moves to the big screen with this intelligent and well written psycho horror. Jonathan has already written an excellent synopsis so I'll only comment on the film overall. A largely unknown cast gives a good peformance in this film playing a bunch of degenerate medical students being hunted...

2.0 out of 5 stars FREAK DOG,
Kevin is a creepy morgue attendant and outcast who is shy and stutters. He has made a video of med students appropriating some party pharmaceuticals. They invite him to drink and party with him under the guise that if he participates, he won't tell. Turns out Kevin is a bit epileptic and ends up in a coma as the kids dump him off at the hospital and run...

Andrew Lee Potts; the lovable buffoon of tv's 'Primeval', shows he can act as he moves to the big screen with this intelligent and well written psycho horror. Jonathan has already written an excellent synopsis so I'll only comment on the film overall. A largely unknown cast gives a good peformance in this film playing a bunch of degenerate medical students being hunted down one by one by Kenneth the hospital misfit who they put into a coma. The theme of the story is out of body experience and possession and although the story is predictable this is way better than your average American slasher film. The production qualities are first class and the kills are realistic and relevant to poor Kenneth's demise. The film is presented in full screen and the blu-ray transfer was good enough for my wife to comment on the high quality of the picture. The soundtrack holds no suprises. There a few extras but nothing to write home about. Well worth renting.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..VERY COOL HORROR..", 23 April 2012

This review is from: Red Mist [DVD] (DVD)
This was another underated small release dvd in the u.k which is a shame as it it a very good film, its your average revenge movie where the victim goes after the people that did them bad! Arielle Kebbel is a nice actress and very sexy, which is another good reason to see it. its a good fun horror film and slightly more original than your average plot, there is a nice twist to it too right in the last few seconds of the film. WARNING though, there is rather alot of strobe light effects in the film which are cool but there is no warning for people on the dvd cover!

This review is from: Red Mist [DVD] (DVD)
A group of ambitious medical students get together to party the night away, with a mix of drink and drugs nicked from the hospital pharmacy. Along comes Kenneth(Andrew Lee Potts, of Primeval and Ideal fame), not exactly the life and soul of the party,a shuffling, stammering mortuary worker with a penchant for self harm. He has a crush on one of the students Catherine(Arielle Kebbel), and asks to walk her home. He is told to get lost by obnoxious Sean(Martin Compston) and Kenneth retaliates by telling them he has filmed the stealing of the drugs from the pharmacy, on his mobile. Worried, they invite him to sit with them, in order to placate him, and steal the evidence.
The it all goes pear shaped. After pouring copious amounts of liquer down Kenneth's throat, he suffers an epileptic seizure, and then goes into shock. Catherine wants to ring for the ambulance, but the others all side with Sean, who says that if they are caught with illegal drugs, their careers will be over. So instead, they dump Kenneth by the hospital. Catherine rings the hospital ward later to discover that Kenneth has slipped into a coma. Sean is pleased, as this guarantees Kenneth's silence. Catherine is not so pleased, and wracked with guilt, she uses her brilliant medical mind to research drugs that may help Kenneth's recovery. The following night she enters the ward under false pretences, and injects Kenneth with the drug. She should have researched the side effects more carefully, as soon Kenneth is able, through out of body experiences, to possess other peoples bodies, in order to carry out a bloody revenge on his tormentors.
This film is directed by Paddy Breathnach, who also has Shrooms in his directing credits. This might put a few people off, as Shrooms is widely derided as a bad film(I thought it had some good points). Well, this is a far better film, and I really can't understand the criticism that it was wrong for Breathnach to have used British locales and cast and made an American based horror. I think if the script worked in an American setting, so be it. It is difficult to side with any of the students in peril, as on the whole, they are a very selfish, unlikeable bunch. However, the mainly British cast all deliver good performances.
The film really comes into its own once Kenneth is in the coma, and is carrying out his revenge through other human vessels. There are some inventive , bloody set pieces and the whole thing comes across as a nifty variation on the Australian horror film 'Patrick'.
Altogether, a very enjoyable horror film, and a rather unfairly derided one too. Nice array of extras on the disc too. I'm giving the whole package 4 out of 5

Kevin is a creepy morgue attendant and outcast who is shy and stutters. He has made a video of med students appropriating some party pharmaceuticals. They invite him to drink and party with him under the guise that if he participates, he won't tell. Turns out Kevin is a bit epileptic and ends up in a coma as the kids dump him off at the hospital and run.

Catherine (Arielle Kebbel), the girl Kevin had a crush on, feels guilty and attempts to revive him with an experimental drug...one that stimulates the brain which happens to be the part of the brain which gives people out of body experiences. Soon people in the click are brutally murdered.

Okay, the killer is a guy in a coma. It was a bit of a yawner. For some reason the film lacked intensity.

F-bombs, brief sex?, brief corpse nudity, Arielle Kebbel,Sarah Boyd-Wilson bra/panties

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless film. Review contains spoilers., 11 Dec 2011
By 
Mark G. (East Anglia) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Red Mist [DVD] (DVD)
The film opens with a young boy witnessing his prostitute mother being murdered...and that's it for the back story really so I hope that is enough reason for why in his teens, Kenneth (for that is the boy's name) likes to film the corpses of girls in the morgue and cut himself.

Anyway, we are introduced to a group of medical students who tick all the generic teen horror boxes, of which my favourite character has to be the pasty goth girl who wears a black & white striped top so that she resembles a mime. Only of course, a crap mime that speaks and forces us to endure her awful dialogue.

So the students go out partying, drinking and drug-taking and they encounter morgue boy Kenneth at a club. They all pick on Kenneth except of course for token 'nice girl' Catherine, who Kenneth has a crush on.

Somewhere amongst all the cliched dialogue, Kenneth is given some drugged booze and falls into a coma.
Gasp. What to do? Should they call for an ambulance? Should they use their medical training to help Kenneth? Oh, I know. How about if they all decide that they will get in trouble so the best course of action would be to dump Kenneth outside the hospital and then do a runner.

While Kenneth is in his coma, in one day Catherine does enough research to allow her to craft a wonder drug that she thinks will help him. One injection later and...

Adverse Effects! Out of body experience! Murder!

If you think that sounds interesting, it isn't. The film is just a huge waste of time.
Dull, uninspired, uninteresting and instantly forgetable.

If you want to watch a good film about a guy in a coma, using his powers to kill people then watch Patrick [DVD] and give this a miss

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Triumph, 31 Jan 2011
This review is from: Red Mist [DVD] (DVD)
In British film making. The plot was captivating, and very original. The strong cast also helped to capture the mood of the film perfectly. I highly recommend this film to anyone thinking of buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Red Mist, 9 Aug 2009
This review is from: Red Mist [DVD] (DVD)
This film is made by the same guy who did Shrooms, and while some people would be put off by that, I actually thought that film was quite good and so I was interested to see what he would do next. This film doesn't disappoint, I'll agree it's better than Shrooms and it's refreshing to see an original horror film amongst all the remakes around right now. It's even better to see a UK made flm that showcases UK talent, such as Primeval's Andrew Lee Potts and Merlin's Keira Knightley lookalike Kate McGrath.
Story is student doctor Arielle Kebbel (she sure likes her horror films doesn't she?) and her student doctor friends are caught doing drugs by Potts, and when they get him to join them he ends up in a coma. Whilst her friends are happy to let his life support be switched off, Kebbel doesn't want his death on her conscience and so she injects him with drugs to hopefully wake him up. What happens instead though is a series of out-of-body experiences which results in the students being picked off one by one in very bloody and grisly ways.
The only negative thing I would say about this film is that none of the characters are particularly likeable so you don't really care when they are killed off, but that is a minor point in an otherwise very good film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mist is German for manure, which this film is !!, 23 July 2009
This review is from: Red Mist [DVD] (DVD)
Better than Shrooms (which was a no-star film ) is NOT a recommendation.
This is another cr@p-fest from Paddy Breathnach who really should now be going to look at the job vacancies boards at his local jobcentre.
Poorly directed and with a childish hackneyed storyline, this really is a horror film for viewers who have never seen any before, and therefore are unable to make comparisons.
It is NOT horrific, and relatively bloodless and because of these cardinal sins alone the film should be avoided.
i can't award no stars or i would have done.... a real stinker.
