Mark Hartley’s Patrick remake premiered a week and half back at the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, and Evan Dickson has delivered his thoughts on the psychic horror starring You’re Next star Sharni Vinson.

The redo is a re-imagining of Richard Franklin’s 1970s chiller, “For three years Patrick has been lying mute and immobile, a patient in Dr Roget’s clinic for the comatose. Dr Roget has been discharging increasingly large doses of electricity into Patrick’s brain, hoping for a sign of brain function. When young nurse Kathy starts working at the clinic, Patrick figures out how to utilize all that pent up power with deadly effect.
