Exclusive clip: Something’s burning in “PATRICK: EVIL AWAKENS”


The remake of the Ozploitation classic PATRICK is arriving in the U.S. bearing a new subtitle, and we’ve got an exclusive excerpt of the comatose title character doing his telekinetic dirty work.

PATRICK: EVIL AWAKENS will be released to theaters and on VOD March 14 by Phase 4 Films. Directed by Mark Hartley, of the acclaimed documentary NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD, from a script by Justin King, the movie stars YOU’RE NEXT’s Sharni Vinson as a nurse who takes a job at the eerie seaside Roget Clinic. There, she encounters the comatose patient Patrick (Jackson Gallagher) and discovers that he has dangerous psychic gifts—and a fatal attraction to her, which is bad news for her estranged boyfriend Ed (Damon Gameau), as seen below. Charles Dance and Rachel Griffiths also star; look for an interview with Hartley in Fango #332, on sale later this month, and on-set coverage at this site soon.
