Anthology films are very much part of the zeitgeist right now with most of their segments hitting rather than missing, so it’s always good news to hear of another one on the cards. And this October 11th, Terror Films will release their entry into said genre with Patient Seven.
The film contains a wraparound story, written by Barry Jay Stitch (The Chosen) and directed by genre veteran Danny Draven (Ghost Month, Reel Evil) which will intertwine 7 award-winning shorts by filmmakers from around the globe that include: Nicholas Peterson, Paul Davis, Ómar Örn Hauksson, Dean Hewison, Erlingur Thoroddsen, Joel Morgan, Johannes Persson and Rasmus Wassberg. You’ll also spot a wide range of familiar faces as Patient Seven’s cast includes: Amy Smart (Crank, Hangman), Alfie Allen (“Game of Thrones,” John Wick), and Doug Jones (Legion, Crimson Peak) among others.
The wraparound stars veteran actor and genre favorite, Michael Ironside (Scanners, Total Recall, Turbo Kid) as Dr. Marcus. Here Dr. Marcus, a renowned psychiatrist, has selected 6 severe mentally ill and dangerous patients, from the Spring Valley Mental Hospital, to interview as part of research for his new book. As Dr. Marcus interviews each patient, one by one the horrors they have committed begin to unfold. However, Dr. Marcus soon learns that there is one patient that has been kept from him, by the hospital’s administrator, Dr. Vincent, played by Jack Plotnick (Reno 911!: Miami).
Patient Seven will be available this October 11th, 2016 on YouTube, Vimeo On Demand, Amazon Instant, Google Play, XBOX Live, Vudu, PlayStation and iTunes. In the meantime, we’ll leave you with the official trailer for the film and a sneak peek “I Banish Thee” clip from the segment directed by Erlingur Thoroddsen.
