PATCHWORK (2015)

Horror/comedy finds three women, Jennifer (Tory Stolper), Ellie (Tracey Fairaway) and Madeleine (Maria Blasucci) waking up in a strange operating room. More exactly, the three wake up all inhabiting the same body, which is stitched together from pieces of their own individual bodies. The three flee this nightmarish operating room and back to Jennifer’s apartment to figure things out. Coming to terms with what’s happened and uniting as one, the three women in one Frankenstein-ish body then strike out to find out who did this to them and exact bloody revenge.

Flick is directed by Tyler MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls) from a script by he and Chris Lee Hill. Movie owes a lot to classics and cult classics like, FrankensteinRe-Animator and Frankenhooker, but makes amusing and clever use of the concept that the Frankenstein-like creation holds the conscience of all three women, whose parts make up it’s body. The actresses all do a good job, as first a confused trio portraying their inner dialogue and then a united front as they seek vengeance against whomever conducted this horrific experiment. The hunt is a bloody one and MacIntyre has a few tricks up his sleeve with a last act reveal that one of the three girls might not be who she seems. It’s a fun and very gory trip as we follow Jennifer/Ellie/Madeleine on their bloody investigation, leading them back to where the horror all started for a gruesome showdown with some amusing twists. An entertaining comedy horror that makes clever use of the elements inspired by some familiar flicks. Also stars Corey Sorenson as “The Surgeon” and James Phelps as Garrett, a young man with a crush on Jennifer who agrees to help the three.
