A movie we have been paying close attention to is the remake of the 1978 Australian horror film Patrick. It has been finished for some time now and has it’s official US release date. The original Patrick focused on a brain dead adolescent with telepathic powers. His love for a nurse at the hospital caused a jealous rage inside of him that turned him into a killing machine.I really enjoyed the original film as i thought it was ahead of it’s time. I’m not always happy to see a remake but a film like Patrick makes sense. Most will never get a chance to see the original and from what I have seen from the trailer the remake look pretty spot on.
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.
Patrick Evil Awakens will be in limited theaters on March 14th and is directed by Mark Hartley. It stars Charles Dance, Rachel Griffiths, and Sharni Vinson. Check out the images and trailer for Patrick: Evil Awakens and look for a review soon.
