Trivia

María Mercedes (who has a cameo in this film as a doctor) previously appeared as Nurse Panicale in the original 1978 version of "Patrick". See more »

Goofs

During the opening credits, we see a newspaper article. The visible headline says "Boy Physician," and the article tells of a boy of 15, Sebastian Roget, who is the youngest student ever admitted to Oxford, and only 2 years left of schooling before becoming a doctor. The wording of the article takes place in the present tense, while Dr. Roget is still a teen, however the photo in the article shows Dr. Roget as an older man, with crows feet wrinkles around his eyes.

Crazy Credits

After the movie credits have ended, we get to see an image of main character Patrick, as well as the two words "PATRICK VIVE" popping up, an homage to the Italian film "Patrick vive ancora" (1980), a sequel to the original "Patrick" (1978). See more »

Another pointless, boring remake
7 April 2014 | by Logan-22See all my reviews

I watched the original 1978 Patrick for the first time the other day to prepare for the remake. It was rather boring, but had that certain vague 1970s creepy charm that kept me from turning it off. I watched the 2013 remake today and was equally bored. Production values are higher this time, but this version is full of stupid CGI and annoying false scares punctuated by a shrill, awful soundtrack.

The cast are OK, although the original 1978 actor who played Patrick was far superior than the new guy who looks like a gay male model. Charles Dance is normally a wonderful actor but given nothing to do beyond a bland rehash of every other villain he's ever played. Rachel Griffiths is horribly boring as the Matron (as with Patrick himself, the 1978 original actor was much better and creepier).

The script is the main problem, just like the threadbare original. The idea of a comatose telekinetic pervert possessed by erotomania for his nurse is an interesting idea, but it's never fully developed. There's too much else going on that takes away from that relationship.

To be honest, I saw the 1980 Italian pseudo-sequel, Patrick Still Lives (aka Patrick Vive Ancora), a few years ago, and I found that ridiculous gorefest much more fun than either the original or remake. It's worth a watch just for the levitating fireplace poker scene! Another Italian film that rips off Patrick (and is full of gore) is Lucio Fulci's Aenigma.
