It’s been awhile since we last talked about this, but the big announcement right now is that Phase 4 Films will release the new Patrick movie on March 14th in select U.S. theaters and on VOD. The film, directed by Mark Hartley, has taken a slightly different title than the 1978 original from Richard Franklin, now adding the subtitle “Evil Awakens.”
Fangoria got some exclusive pics, which we’ve included here for your benefit.
Patrick: Evil Awakens stars Sharmi Vinson (You’re Next) as nurse Kathy Jacquard, Charles Dance (Game of Thrones, Aliens 3, Underworld: Awakening) as Doctor Roget, Jackson Gallagher as the titular character, and Rachel Griffiths (Blow, Six Feet Under) as Matron Cassidy.
Patrick: Evil Awakens Synopsis:
The vague description of the film goes as such:
After killing his mother and her lover some years before, Patrick is the comatose patient in room 15 of a remote, private psychiatric clinic.
Fango offered something much juicier:
Nurse Kathy Jacquard begins work at a remote, Gothic psychiatric hospital and is introduced to Patrick, a comatose patient being experimented on by Head Doctor Roget and his second-in-command, Matron Cassidy. Kathy soon discovers that Patrick has telekinetic abilities, which violently threaten the lives of everyone at the clinic.
Let us know what you think of this remake and if you plan to see it.
