Patrick is a sophisticated thriller that begins with the mysterious disappearance of a nurse at a remote private clinic. Kathy takes up the vacant position and is thrust into the formidable company of Matron Cassidy and Dr. Sebastian Roget, a renegade neurologist operating at the fringes of medical society. Kathy is soon put to work caring for a mysterious coma patient simply known as Patrick. Unbeknownst to the young nurse, Patrick has a crush on her, and burgeoning psychic powers and before long his affection will turn into a deadly and bloody obsession.
At this moment we know that Patrick
will be released in Australian and New Zealand cinemas on October 17th, 2013.
