Exclusive: Mark Hartley Talks Patrick: Evil Awakens' Chilling Tone, Thrilling Finale, Crack Cast, and Much More

Mark Hartley's reimagining of cult '70s shocker Patrick hits UK DVD shelves today, 11 August, titled Evil Awakens. With this in mind, we recently cornered Hartley as he took a break in London to pick his brain about the film, his feature helming debut.

Until now, Mark has been most widely known for his directorial work on music videos and documentaries such as Not Quite Hollywood and Machete Maidens Unleashed. When quizzed about the circumstances that led to finally getting in the director's chair for a narrative feature film, he tells us, "Well, I had never ever planned, or had any ambition, to make documentaries."

He elaborates, "That kind of happened by accident... I had always intended to make narrative features, and it was just a very difficult process. My background is actually music videos – I’ve made like a hundred and fifty music videos in Australia prior to

‘Patrick: Evil Awakens’ Review

Stars: Charles Dance, Rachel Griffiths, Sharni Vinson, Martin Crewes, Peta Sergeant | Written by Justin King | Directed by Mark Hartley

Former music video director Mark Hartley came to prominence, at least to me, in 2008 when his wonderful documentary Not Quite Hollywood, which detailed the “Ozploitation” genre, exploded on film blogs and movie sites across the globe. He then followed that up with another documentary, Machete Maidens Unleashed, a look at Filipino genre filmmaking, in 2010. I was fortunate enough to see that doc on the big screen at 2011′s Frightfest Glasgow and now, some three years later Hartley’s feature film debut Patrick: Evil Awakens, a loose remake of Richard Franklin’s seminal 1978 shocker, makes it’s UK debut on DVD.

It’s been some years since I’ve seen Franklin’s original film and it’s Italian lensed “sequel” Patrick Lives Again, but it’s not like anyone can actually forget

Just five episodes remain in Season 1 of "The Originals" with the show going on spring break until April 15th. We don't have the synopsis yet for its return episode, #1.18, "The Big Uneasy," but we do have a preview to share. Expect the rest soon!

Peta Sergeant Talks Patrick's Chills and Tension, Working with GoT's Charles Dance, Joining The Originals, and More

Peta Sergeant joins "The Originals" tomorrow night, but maybe you already caught her over the weekend in her saucy nurse’s uniform in the remake of 1978’s Aussie cult classic Patrick.

It’s just now available on VOD (unleashed on Friday the 14th), and I do highly recommend it. I never did see the original – but I love the whole idea of a supposedly comatose patient (the titular Patrick, played by Jackson Gallagher) who’s actually sentient… and maybe even evil.

Deftly directed by Mark Hartley (who previously did the well-received doc on Australian horror films Not Quite Hollywood), Patrick (review here) has a great old-school dread to it I just know everyone will want to see (and here's hoping everyone will want to read this interview with the delightful Ms. Sergeant as well)!

Film Review: ‘Patrick: Evil Awakens’

Film Review: ‘Patrick: Evil Awakens’
A comatose patient with telekinetic powers runs amok without leaving his bed at a mad doctor’s clinic in “Patrick: Evil Awakens.” This well-crafted remake of the 1978 Aussie cult item “Patrick” marks a steady move into scripted features for helmer Mark Hartley, whose impressive documentary “Not Quite Hollywood” chronicled the 1970s and ‘80s golden age of Aussie exploitation cinema. Rich in gothic trappings and sporting a terrific central performance by Sharni Vinson (“You’re Next”) as a nurse in Patrick’s sinister sights, the pic has some wobbly dialogue and doesn’t deliver full-blown terror, but should satisfy audiences hankering for old-school genre entertainment. Tepid B.O. during the film’s October 2013 Oz run doesn’t bode well for its limited U.S. theatrical bow on March 14; outlook is much brighter for same-day VOD release and homevid fortunes.
