Critic Reviews for Patrick: Evil Awakens
More horror remakes should be as thoughtful as "Patrick: Evil Awakens," an atypically clever riff on the 1978 Australian thriller "Patrick."
This well-crafted remake of 1978's 'Patrick' is rich in gothic trappings and features a terrific central performance by Sharni Vinson.
Patrick: Evil Awakens is an entirely forgettable horror flick that lets the great talent involved go to waste. There are certainly more entertaining low-budget horror offerings that you can waste an evening on.
Audience Reviews for Patrick: Evil Awakens
Based on the 70s version, which I did not watch :( An insane asylum experiments on a man in a coma. He gets all kinds of powers and goes extreme stalker to get a girl. Not really scary, and a bit too slow moving.
One line summary: Well-crafted supernatural thriller. ---------------------- The Roget Clinic houses comatose patients who show little sign of possible recovery. The main effort of the clinic is to find a way to wake these patients up and bring them back into the world. In the opening sequence, a young nurse follows her ears around the place, takes a few pictures, and is killed for it. This is followed up by the hiring of the replacement, Kathy Jacquard, the protagonist. Soon enough, she's involved with the research aspect. Dr. Roget has her assist while he tries to resuscitate some neural pathways in Patrick. As time goes by, Patrick communicates, but with only Kathy. Doctor Roget exposes more of his work to her. Patrick keeps interrupting Kathy's relationship with Brian, then with Damon. Patrick eventually starts typing telekinetically, and lets Kathy know what he's up to, somewhat. Kathy tries to get Roget to stop torturing Patrick, but Doctor Roget will have none of that. Will someone put a stop to the madness before Patrick gets his complete revenge? ----Scores----- Cinematography: 9/10 Well done, with a component of noir techniques. Sound: 8/10 Rather good: often added to the suspense and sense of danger. Acting: 8/10 Charles Dance, Rachel Griffiths, Sharni Vinson, and Martin Crewes were all rather fine. Screenplay: 8/10 Better than I expected on exposition of motivations. This was central to the resolution of the film's plot drivers.
A surprisingly interesting reimagining of the 80s cult classic, Patrick: Evil Awakens has the same basic plotline but introduces a level of gothic atmosphere and explores how the changes in computer and wireless technology might play into tales of telekinetic mayhem. A well-made, decently acted, and brooding film, Patrick: Evil Awakens provides enough new ideas and style to make this remake a must-see for fans of 80s horror.
