    Story: 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.Written by GE  


    Synopsis: Often known as Red Mist this terror tale stars Arielle Kebbel as Catherine Thomas, one of a group of medical students responsible for accidentally rendering a sleazy janitor comatose in revenge for his voyeuristic actions. But when the remorseful Catherine administers an untested cocktail of wonder drugs, the patient is jolted into a startling out-of-body state, allowing him to murderously possess each student in turn.
