Continuing on in their mission to deliver riveting genre works, Terror Films brings us news of a new anthology we should have our eyes on. Patient Seven looks and sounds like just the kind of horror that hardcore fans live for. We’ll see seven award winning tales interwoven into this package, and that’s got us both excited and anxious.
2015 was a stellar year for anthologies. Is there a chance that 2016 rounds a corner and drops a couple top notch Anthos on us in the following five months? It’s possible, and Patient Seven could be the launch point for such a fine turn.
We’ve got a look at the poster and the trailer below for you, but be sure to check out some very valuable information from the official press release before you move on to the meat on the media bone.
In October of 2015, genre distributor Terror Films announced that principal photography had begun on an Untitled Horror Anthology, now titled PATIENT SEVEN. The structure of the anthology includes a wrap-around, written by Barry Jay Stitch (The Chosen) and directed by horror veteran Danny Draven (Ghost Month, Reel Evil), which intertwines 7 award winning, short films by filmmakers from around the globe. The filmmakers include: Nicholas Peterson, Paul Davis, Ómar Örn Hauksson, Dean Hewison, Erlingur Ottar Thoroddsen, Joel Morgan, Johannes Persson and Rasmus Wassberg. The cast includes: Amy Smart (Just Friends, The Single Mom’s Club), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones, John Wick), Doug Jones (Pan’s Labyrinth, Crimson Peak), among others.
The wrap around stars veteran actor and genre favorite, Michael Ironside (Scanners, Total Recall) as Dr. Marcus. 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 who has been kept from him by the hospital’s administrator, Dr. Vincent – played by Jack Plotnick (Drawn Together, Reno 911!: Miami).
