Patrick: Evil Awakens hits VOD and select theaters today via Phase 4 Films. For one last tease before the release, a “found footage” video of an unethical medical experiment going wrong has been released. Watch it below.
Patrick: Evil Awakens is a remake of the 1978 Australian film Patrick (which hits Blu-ray on March 25 from Severin). Mark Hartley (Machete Maidens Unleashed) directs from a script written by Justin King. It stars Charles Dance (Alien 3), Rachel Griffiths (Blow) and Sharni Vinson (You’re Next).
When a young nurse begins work at an isolated psychiatric ward, she quickly becomes fascinated with Patrick, a brain dead patient who is the subject of a mad scientist’s cruel and unusual experiments. What starts as an innocent fascination quickly takes a sinister turn as Patrick begins to use his psychic powers to manipulate her every move, and send her life into a terrifying spiral out of control.

For those seeking a physical copy, Patrick: Evil Awakens will be out on DVD and Blu-ray on May 27.
