Phase 4 Films and Uncork'd Entertainment have ensnared Mark Hartley's Aussie horror redo 'Patrick' for distribution across the US and Canada. There's no official theatrical or street date for the release at the moment but the Hollywood Reporter are suggesting that Phase 4 are looking to unleash the remake both theatrically and On Demand at some point in the Spring of 2014. 'Patrick', based on the original 1978 horror from director Richard Franklin, stars Sharni Vinson -below ('Your Next'), Charles Dance ('Game of Thrones'), Rachel Griffiths ('Six Feet Under') and Jackson Gallagher.
"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 a 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 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 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 a 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."
