Phase 4 Films and Uncork'd Entertainment have acquired U.S. and Canadian rights to Mark Hartley's remake of the classic Aussie horror thriller "Patrick".
Charles Dance ("Game of Thrones"), Rachel Griffiths ("Six Feet Under") and Sharni Vinson ("You're Next") star in the story which follows a former killer who is now a comatose patient in a small psychiatric clinic.
When a pretty young nurse begins working with him, she senses that Patrick is communicating with her, and he seems to be using his powers to manipulate events in her life.
Phase 4 Films will release the film theatrically and through on demand in spring 2014.
The trailer is up at Apple Trailers.
