BURBANK, CA – Riveting. Raw. Relentless. What started as a harmless prank spins out of control, turning medical science into an avenging angel of death in Anchor Bay Entertainment’s Red Mist (aka FreakDog), making its DVD debut on February 10, 2009. Pre-book date is January 8, with an SRP of $26.97.
For dangerous and depraved loner Kenneth (Andrew Lee Potts), life at the hospital where he works is a series of endless torments from a group of ambitious medical students. But when they decide to teach him “a lesson,” he ends up in a coma and practically brain dead. Guilt-ridden Catherine (Kebbel), determined to save his life, administers a powerful and untested cocktail of drugs to the coma victim. Rather than cure him, however, it triggers a powerful “out-of-body” experience and enables Kenneth to temporarily inhabit other people’s bodies and, through them, take revenge on those responsible for his “vegetative” state.
As her colleagues are savagely picked off one-by-one, Catherine soon realizes what started as a medical miracle has now transformed into a medical monstrosity. She is forced to confront a comatose killer who moves in and out of bodies at will, getting ever closer to her as his supernatural powers increase.
Red Mist features a top cast headed by the lovely Arielle Kebbel (The Grudge 2, John Tucker Must Die!, “Gilmore Girls” and 2009’s The Uninvited with Elizabeth Banks), Sarah Carter (Final Destination 2, DOA: Dead or Alive, “Shark”), Andrew Lee Potts (“Primeval,” 1408, Return to House on Haunted Hill) and Emmy Award-nominee Stephen Dillane (HBO’s “John Adams,” The Greatest Game Ever Played, the OscarÂ®-winning The Hours).
