Charles Dance plays Dr Sebastian Roget, a genius in the investigation and treatment of comas. He works for an organisation called the Franklin Institute. His research department is threatened with closure, and Dr Roget has only two months to show his superiors that his work achieves results.
Dr Roget's daughter is Matron Cassidy, a stern, humourless nurse. Her husband committed suicide and the other staff reckon that it's easy to understand why. The department recruits a new nurse, Kathy, to replace a staff member who's come to an unfortunate end. Kathy's job is " to look after Dr Roget and his zombies", i.e. the ten coma patients under the care of the Institute. The patients include car crash victims and stroke patients. One of the patients is a handsome, thirty-something chap named Patrick, who has frequent involuntary muscle reactions.
The unexpected movements of Patrick convince Kathy that he isn't really in a coma. Dr Roget is adamant that he is, and that any body movements are simply a consequence of their medical processes, which include treatment with electricity.
People around Kathy start to suffer from violent arm tremors and begin to self-harm - Matron Cassidy if she's being mean, and an eager potential boyfriend, Brian, if he's getting too frisky. Kathy becomes more and more convinced that Patrick has some form of subconscious control, and she learns a way to communicate with him through his very small facial movements...
This is a very good Australian thriller. Charles Dance is a brilliant actor - I once saw him play Coriolanus in Stratford-Upon-Avon and his performance was mesmerising - and he doesn't put a foot wrong here. His character is aloof, calculating and cold, you just know that he's up to no good.

Format: Blu-ray
The film opens with a nurse (Eliza Taylor) in a creepy building getting a needle to her eye. During the opening credits we discover a nurse is missing. The headlines also tell us Dr. Roget (Charles Dance) is genius and a "Dr. Frankenstein" when it comes to treating comas. He has a clinic in said creepy building. Kathy (Sharni Vinson) is the replacement nurse. She works for Cassidy (Rachel Griffiths) the stereotypical stern matron who is also Roget's daughter. She also works with Nurse Williams (Peta Sergeant) who likes her vices. Rumor is Cassidy's husband killed himself to get away from her. She tells Kathy her "pay is minimal, hours abdominal, and termination without notice."

There are about a dozen patients with involuntary spitter Patrick (Jackson Gallagher) being a special case. Kathy takes an interest in Patrick as it appears he is not really comatose. However, he only responds to Kathy, a woman who has issues. It appears Patrick is taking over her life.

This is a good little Australian horror/thriller. It is not really a mystery, but has mystery elements. Horror aspect smartly builds with the standard opening teaser.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Sharni Vinson, Simone Buchanan)

Why remake a B-Movie into the same beast? Patrick was a chilling great little gem from the late 70's with Susan Penghilgan that has now been remade in to a chiller with Rachel Griffiths and Charles Dance. The guy who plays patrick in this modern one looks identical to the older 1. Sharni Wilson is also in this as yet another scream queen after Your Next. Patrick is in a coma in a hospital and starts to make a connection with a nurse.

Not a bad film, but not a classic either. Decent story with decent acting but something was missing, worth a go if you can pick it up cheap enough.
