Trailer for the Moment: PATRICK

The trailer for this upcoming Australian horror remake released today – it just look damn creepy. I still spin out hearing Australian accents in film but this is the most scary I have ever seen Rachel Griffiths. Add to the fact Charles Dance is in it and I am scared – I hate hate hate him in Game of Thrones (Tywin Lannister). Then throw in a sadistic evil, but incredibly hot in his boxers for most of the film, comatose hottie patient and I am IN.

PATRICK – THE TRAILER FOR UPCOMING AUSTRALIAN HORROR FILM

 

After the mysterious disappearance of a nurse at a remote private clinic, Kathy takes up the vacant role at ‘Roget Clinic’, a private hospital for the clinically comatose, in a remote seaside town.

Kathy is placed under the imperious watch of Matron Cassidy  and Dr. Sebastian Roget, a renegade neurologist operating at the fringes of medical society.

Despite her strong sense of foreboding and the dismal working conditions, Kathy is desperate to take up the post and overlooks the eeriness of the ward and the disturbing patients that reside there. She is soon assigned to care for a mysterious coma patient, who is simply known to staff as Patrick.

Before long it becomes apparent that Patrick has telepathic powers and his affections for Kathy turn into a deadly and bloody obsession, letting no one get in his way.

PATRICK – THE TRAILER FOR UPCOMING AUSTRALIAN HORROR FILM

 

Directed by Mark Hartley (Not Quite Hollywood) and starring legendary actor Charles Dance (Game of Thrones, Alien 3), Golden Globe® winner and Academy Award® nominee Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under, Muriel’s Wedding), alongside Sharni Vinson (Bait 3D, You’re Next), Peta Sergeant (Iron Sky, Winners and Losers), and Damon Gameau (Save Your Legs, Balibo), PATRICK is a visceral, dramatic thriller centred on a young nurse who becomes the obsession of a comatose patient with telekinetic powers.

Produced by Antony I. Ginnane, PATRICK is a modern re-working of the 1978 classic cult film of the same name, brought to a new generation of psychological thriller fans. Multiple ARIA award and AFI award winning director Mark Hartley has tapped into PATRICK’s cinematic past to create a moody, suspense driven film, accompanied by a lush score provided by legendary composer Pino Donaggio, who is well known for his music composition for Brian de Palma’s Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Body Double and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now.

Director Mark Hartley said, “Our PATRICK is a throwback. It’s a gothic chiller – it’s the kind of film that really isn’t made in this country. The film announces that style from its first frame and first note of Donaggio’s orchestral score. I sincerely hope that audiences embrace its old school sensibility and go along for the ride.”

PATRICK is playing at the MIFF tonight and it releasing in cinemas on October 24th, is rated MA15+ and runs for 96mins – we will endeavour to have it reviewed for you prior to release.
