Patrick_Still 2

Phase 4 has announced Mark Harley’s newly titled Patrick: Evil Awakens (review) for release in limited theaters on March 14.

Bloody Disgusting now has the official theatrical trailer, key art and batch of stills from the pic starring Charles Dance, Rachel Griffiths and You’re Next‘s Sharni Vinson.

A remake of Richard Franklin’s 1978 horror pic, “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.

 
  • REmake

    I was actually excited to hear they were making this remake, but after watching that trailer I really don’t want to see this one. Disappointing.

    This remake appeared as the Surprise film at the festival here in Dublin back in October. I was really looking forward to seeing it considering the talent involved, unfortunately it just doesn’t really work. Hartley is almost too reverential in his treatment. It feels like he was trying to be too close and too respectful of Franklin’s original at times so even though it is a fresh new film it somehow appears dated. I think it is almost too polished and it sorely lacks the raw edge that we have come to expect from Ozploitation cinema. Maybe they should have had Everett De Roche involved in the writing.

    I just came to say that “Patrick” is one sexy mofo.
