Red Mist (2008)

Directed by Paddy Breathnach.  Written by Spence Wright.  Starring Arielle Kebbel.

Plot: a bunch of asshole students torture this other kid right into a coma – unfortunately for them, he enjoys the coma too much


The original title of the movie was Freakdog apparently and we’re not sure why they changed it.  Freakdog is what this particular group of assholes call this young man.  Not sure why, but he doesn’t like it very much and for good reason.  They taunt him, they ridicule him, they humiliate him and when that’s not enough, they go a lot too far and he actually winds up in a coma.  Instead of admitting that they had anything to do with his coma, they come up with a plan NOT to tell anyone they were anywhere near him.  Because, ya know, they can’t blow their rides or whatever.  Do you hate them yet?  Of course you do.  And now you get to enjoy watching them die.  Because from his coma, Freakdog is mighty strong and highly supernatural.

Freakdog is a revenge story and a good one at that.  The kills are great, nicely done.  It’s a great motive of course.  It followed rules, had a good script, good acting, good effects and the end is really nice.  If only all the assholes of the world could be melted off the earth.

Warning though: There is a lot of strobe action in this movie.  Lights going every which way and just jumping off the screen.  We don’t want anyone to have a seizure or anything.

Otherwise, it’s highly recommended.  I give it a 75/100 and DJ gives it a 73.
