Storyline

It's been two years since Dylan McNalt killed himself. Therapist Victoria Wrightmar has been struggling to forgive herself ever since. After all, Dylan was her patient... and she allowed him to get too close. Victoria has managed to start a new practice specializing in dreams and hypnotherapy, and with the success of her newest book and the support of her boyfriend Jason, it seems like things are finally looking up. Until Blaire Bennett walks into Victoria's office. Blaire has been suffering from disturbing dreams, and a peculiar hypnosis session reveals that her case is startlingly similar to Dylan's. Is history repeating itself? Victoria's life begins to spiral out of control as other patients begin relapsing in their progress and Victoria's loved ones find themselves in harm's way. But is there somebody pulling the strings from the shadows, or is Victoria-the only thing linking it all together-somehow responsible? Written by Anonymous

The spirit of indie film is alive & well
26 January 2015 | by aahz2323See all my reviews

Too often these days we, the movie going public, are treated to nothing but monster budget films meant to distract us with over the top CGI and two dimensional characters spewing clichéd catch phrases. Even character driven films, such as the wonderful Birdman, cost as much as the GDP of a small country. So it's refreshing to see a truly independent film such as Patient Killer get it's day to shine. The first thing that struck me with this film was the beautiful cinematography. Technically this film was brilliant, lighting, sound design, set design etc. The characters in this film, led by Caspar Van Dien, Barbie Castro & Victoria Pratt, do a wonderful job of leading us through an intricate maze of story and misdirection. As a theater goer I would highly recommend this film. As a filmmaker myself I applaud those associated with this production their ability to present a quality production without the tens of millions Hollywood would spend and for keeping the spirit of indie film making alive.
