Patient Seven


I went into this film with low expectations. That is, I didn’t quite know what to expect after having watched the trailer. And let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised.

While the overall storyline was a little predictable, I did enjoy the interviews with all the patients. Their backstories were revealed in flashback snippets, which made the film a varied anthology of creepy tales: a possessed little girl who murders her family; a murdered corpse who can still hear and feel; a vampire hunter who is trying to save humanity; a hot Scandinavian bloke who is managing to survive a zombie apocalypse while harbouring some dreadful secret.

Patient Seven has a darkly humoured vibe throughout, especially the story which features Game of Thrones’ Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen). I especially loved the fact that the film’s flashback settings aren’t all in the US. In fact, I was actually quite excited that one of the patients was Icelandic.

All in all, I’d definitely recommend giving Patient Seven a whirl if you’re at a loose end on Netflix. It’s a collage of messed up human psyche with a whole load of supernatural thrown in the mix just to make you wonder. And although it’s not exactly piss-your-pants scary, it’s certainly fun and varied.

I’d give Patient Seven a respectable 3*
