A new international poster for Ozploitation horror remake Patrick, starring Game of Thrones‘ Charles Dance, Six Feet Under‘s Rachel Griffiths and You’re Next‘s Sharni Vinson, has been released.
The new poster (courtesy of Arrow in the Head) reminds us that the only thing more dangerous than his hate is his love, the reason for which is as follows: “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 (Dance) who treats him as guinea pig in his bizarre studies of life and death. When Kathy (Vinson), a nurse who has recently separated from her boyfriend, begins working at the clinic, she is instructed to care for him. She is disturbed by Roget’s treatment of him and somehow feels that Patrick is trying to make a connection with her. When Kathy realized 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.”
Patrick will be showing at Fantastic Fest and Sitges, but there is no word yet on a theatrical release. You can buy the original film on DVD for £5.99 at Amazon.co.uk.
