Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"'Shrooms' director Paddy Breathnach still hasn't the foggiest idea of how to make a horror."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Beep, beep, wooooooo...: this moronic medical horror's so awful, you'll be willing yourself to flatline."
‑ Jamie Russell, Total Film
"Red Mist is a lazy, incoherent shocker with nothing to recommend it."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Slasher movies tend to be all about the fiend doing the carving and cutting in a search for revenge. And that's pretty much the core of Red Mist."
‑ , Sunday Mail [UK]
"inevitably derivative (and the faux-American accents from the mostly Irish cast grate), but it makes for a heady enough cocktail."
‑ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
"A derivative and titter-inducingly weak slasher movie."
‑ Kevin Maher, Times [UK]
"This is a by-the-numbers slasher dressed up as a thriller, with Holby City-level acting."
‑ , Sun Online
"The plot is total rubbish, and no amount of slick film-making can make you believe it is worth all the blood and gore we have to sit through."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Paddy Breathnach's second horror outing plays much like his first, mixing genres and influences into a heady cocktail - although this time around the flavours may no longer satisfy the jaded palate."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"A very ordinary, conventional, by-the-numbers creepfest without any dark spark."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"It isn't scary enough or funny enough to be worth your time."
‑ Robert Hanks, Independent
"You've seen this all before, and you've seen it done better."
‑ Robbie Collin, News of the World
"Routine surgery."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
