“Patrick” hits theatres on March 14th, 2014 and will be distributed by Phase 4 Films. “Patrick” is the redo of the the cult classic with the same name. It is directed by Mark Hartley and the film is a definite “will have” when it hits DVD/Blu-ray. “Patrick” stars Charles Dance, Rachel Griffiths, and Sharni Vinson. I am really excited to see how this remake turns out. The original is in my special horror place “where the films that actually affected me far beyond the viewing experience” reside.
When a young nurse begins work at an isolated psychiatric ward, she quickly becomes fascinated with Patrick, a brain dead patient who is the subject of a mad scientist’s cruel and unusual experiments. What starts as an innocent fascination quickly takes a sinister turn as Patrick begins to use his psychic powers to manipulate her every move, and send her life into a terrifying spiral out of control.
