Filipino director Yam Laranas did such a bang-up good job with his 2004 horror movie “Sigaw”, that he repeated the process on 2008’s “The Echo”, an English-language remake of “Sigaw” that went straight to DVD. Laranas is back with a new horror movie called “Patient X”, which has the makings of an effective “last stand in a haunted house” type, which is always something I’m down for. Trailer and poster for the movie via Bloody-Disgusting below.
Here’s the not-all-that-coherent plot synopsis for “Patient X”:
After twenty years, local police captures the murderer of the older brother of a young boy. Now a doctor, he must go back to his old town and face the murderers himself. He then discovers that the murderers are Aswangs (folkloric Filipino vampire-like creatures) and they pose a deadly threat not only to him but also for the entire town.
Starring Richard Gutierrez, Cristine Reyes, TJ Trinidad, Miriam Quiambao, Elvis Gutierrez, Nanding Josef , Crispin Pineda, Dion Ignacio, and directed by Yam Laranas.
The trailer is English-subtitled, which is very nice.
