Coming across as part The Fog, part Silent Hill, part The Mist and pretty much any other movie you have seen that involves a slowly creeping cloud moving across the screen, After nonetheless promises something different.

Taking the approach of nodding as much to the power of the human spirit and its beauty, this Ryan Smith-directed effort also makes sure we get plenty of nastiness up on screen.

The film follows Freddy and Ana, two bus crash survivors who awake in hospital to find that they seem to be the only people left alive in their town.

Worse still, a dark fog is on its way, threatening to destroy everything in its path.

After screens at Frightfest on Monday, August 27.
