Trivia

Goofs

A doctor would not tell a patient's family that there was "nothing more that could been done" unless he or she had consulted with multiple professionals beforehand. To do so would not only risk a lawsuit, it would risk the state medical board restrict or removing the doctor's license to practice. See more »

Speaking patiently
9 June 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Saw 'Patient', being fond of horror regardless of budget (even if not my favourite genre) and being intrigued by the idea which was reasonably different when it comes to recent viewings of horror. Being behind on my film watching and reviewing, with a long to watch and review list that keeps getting longer, it took me a while to get round to watching and reviewing it.

Giving 'Patient' a fair chance with being interest and apprehension, it turned out to be far better than expected. Won't say that 'Patient' is a great film because it isn't and the potential, while not wasted, is not fully lived up to. Considering the large number of films seen recently being mediocre and less and wasting potential, was expecting worse and was relieved that while wanting in a fair few areas it was actually one of my better recent low-budget viewings.

Starting with the positives, generally the production values could have been much worse. There is a real sense of eeriness, foreboding and a decently stylish atmosphere, and it makes the most of the confined and at times effectively claustrophobic setting. The music is also suitably haunting and manages to not be too intrusive, likewise with the sound not being too obvious (a bugbear of mine with low-budget viewings recently).

There is tension, suspense and genuine creepiness. The acting is better than average, with the best coming from Anney Reese, even when confined in movement she manages to express a lot in her face and eyes.

Would have liked however more tension and suspense and for some of the scares to be more creative and less trying-too-hard to the point of cheesiness (for example a menacing old lady so overdone in rendering and acting it was almost comical). The dialogue is cheesy and awkward generally.

Found that the story could have been executed better too. Too many parts are uneventful and it can feel padded, not to mention an ending that perplexes in its convolution rather than intrigues or thrills. There are exceptions to the better than expected production values, the effects are shoddy and the shakiness of the camera at times could be excessive and nauseating.

Overall, better than expected but didn't blow me away. 5/10 Bethany Cox
