'Patrick' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed Feb 12, 2014 at 08:00 AM PST by

A spitting comatose psychic makes his Blu-ray debut next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Severin is working on 'Patrick' for a Blu-ray release on March 11.

The original Ozploitation classic is back like you've never seen it before: Robert Thompson (THIRST) stars as a comatose killer seemingly unresponsive in a small private hospital. But when a hot new nurse (Susan Penhaligon of THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT) begins to question his condition, Patrick will unleash a waking nightmare of psychokinetic carnage. Sir Robert Helpmann (The Child Catcher in CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG) co-stars in this international hit shocker produced by Antony I. Ginnane (TURKEY SHOOT, DEAD KIDS), written by Everett De Roche (ROAD GAMES, RAZORBACK) and directed by Richard Franklin (FANTASM, PSYCHO II), now transferred in HD from the original negative for the first time ever and loaded with new & archival Extras never before available in America.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio Commentary, Interviews, Trailers and TV Spots.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
