And now, from the depths of Europe’s recently concluded Film4 Frightfest, we’ve got a new and interesting piece to talk about, Paddy Breathnach’s Freakdog. Frankly, Freakdog, which gives us plenty of terror hottie joy in the forms of Arielle Kebbel and Sarah Carter, definitely looks like it’s going to be an absolute winner.
The plotline on this beastie is definitely one for the “new and interesting” column—basically, a coma victim’s going to get a powerful, but untested cocktail of drugs administered to him, but it’s not going to cure him. Instead, it’s going to give him some kind of astral projection capability where he can possess other people’s bodies and use those meat shields to take revenge on bullying medical students who were, accidentally, responsible for his condition. Don’t suppose I mentioned that the coma victim was a violent psychopathic loner, did I? Naturally, we will wind up deep in blood and killing, and just how deep we’ll find out when this reaches our shelves sometime in 2009.
