Starring Charles Dance, Rachel Griffiths, Sharni Vinson.
Directed by Mark Hartley
The new Patrick remake has been officially renamed to Patrick: Evil Awakens. Mark Hartley's version will be released in limited theaters this upcoming March 14, 2014 courtesy of Phase 4 Films. I for one am a huge Charles Dance (HBO's Game of Thrones TV series, Underworld: Awakening, Alien 3) fan and am definitely going to put Patrick: Evil Awakens on my horror movies to watch list.
Synopsis: After killing his mother and her lover some years before, Patrick is the comatose patient in Room 15 of a remote, private psychiatric clinic run by the secretive Dr. Roget, who treats him as guinea pig in his bizarre studies of life and death.
When Kathy, a nurse who has recently separated from her boyfriend, begins working at the clinic, she is instructed to care for Patrick. She is disturbed by Roget’s treatment of him and somehow feels that Patrick is trying to make a connection with her. When Kathy realizes that the lifeless murderer can communicate, she is shocked but compelled to prove her theory. Patrick has psychokinetic powers, which he uses to talk to Kathy by transferring his thoughts to her computer. As Patrick’s communication becomes stronger, strange and terrifying events begin to occur. Patrick has feelings for Kathy, and his affection is about to manifest itself as a deadly, bloody obsession.
