1.0 out of 5 starsA Shameless Shutter Island Ripoff
Verified purchase
This movie is essentially a Shutter Island knockoff. It deals with a psychologist who deals with 6 mental patients at an insane asylum at Spring Valley. At first, I thought the movie presented an interested case where the psychologist listened to the stories of these patients in an attempt to discover which were creating a false narrative of their crimes in order to fake their mental insanity. However, this quickly became repetitive and tiresome. I'd expected the doctor to be able to dissect their story in a matter of minutes but instead, the movie takes us through 15 minute flashbacks of unreliable narrarators to fill up the length of the movie. No real analysis, just a way to delude watches into forgetting the real question behind the movie: the title.

The title is called Patient 7 however presented to us are only 6 patients. So who is the 7th patient? Now for any of you who have watched the masterpiece called "Shutter Island" instantly realized how close this is to a riddle presented within the movie, "Who is patient 67?" As you can tell now, I don't even have to spoil anything to tell you that the end becomes extremely obvious when I tell you this shameless ripoff is a mirror of Shutter Island without any of its charm. The produces behind this film seem to have a hard on for zombies since they had not one but TWO zombie flashbacks. Running out of ideas? Then maybe stick to a low budget zombie film.

3.0 out of 5 starsA Bit Too Befuddling...
Verified purchase
This movie is something like an experiment: when you cross American-style horror with British/ Icelandic, you get creepy and strange but not exactly scary. I was really getting into it, up until the scene where 'the doctor' is able to understand the Icelandic girl (right there I thought 'Nope!'). It wasn't believable in any way, shape or form - Icelandic is just too difficult, you sort of have to be born into it to get it. But then towards the end, we find out 'the doctor' was supposedly foreign himself (good-looking kid whoever he is, the kid who played him as a youngster) - but the storyline as a whole is confusing. It's difficult to distinguish how much of the material shown actually happened, or if in fact it was all just a figment of one's imagination. It's also hard to tell if 'the doctor' was dreaming the entire thing (maybe), or whether some of it actually happened. One of the things about Icelandic horror that is different from ours: they spend too much time dealing with the abstract, and not enough time in reality (thereby lessening the effect of being scary). They also don't explain exactly what is happening, making their plots hard to understand. I am all for more movies probing the minds of 'questionable individuals' (makes for good psychological suspense)... but it needs to be presented in a believable, realistic way, otherwise you kind of feel like you're watching a bad Disney movie. This was a solid 3-star venture, for me.

I actually liked this movie & its twists & turns more than I thought I was going to.I normally don't like anthology-type movies that much but this one was interesting how it contributed to the whole movie.At first I thought it was just another weird movie,but the more I watched it the more I liked it.

5.0 out of 5 starsReally good
Verified purchase
I didn't know that basically this was an anthology of stories but it was done right. The plot moved at a great pace interweaving the stories without trying too hard. The acting was great and the characters we're all fully fleshed out people that you wanted to hear their stories. While there is a twist, it was completely done well and the other stories stop you from trying to see too far into the story.

A psychiatrist is writing a new novel and interviews 6 patients based on the reasons they are in the facility to use for the book. While its not a secret to the patients that they will be in the book, they find out that it's not just a simple interview.

Overall, I enjoyed this movie and I would recommend it to others.

3.0 out of 5 starsEntertaining
Verified purchase
It's an anthology film bringing some interesting stories tied together with a narrative about a doctor interviewing several patients of a mental institution. Each one tells their story of why they are there. These stories are actually short horror tales, some that I've seen before, which I believe come from horror film festivals that happen every year. They're pretty good and it seems most if not all of them were filmed in European territories. They got some good actors/actresses over there.

I'd recommend watching this if you like short horror stories. They're not the kind filled with jump scares and such; just some dark twists and ideas put together.

3.0 out of 5 starsPredictable
Verified purchase
Every scene in this movie feels like it is supposed to be radical and shocking, but literally everything that happens is extremely predictable. The movie is actually enjoyable for the most part, but I would not watch it again. If you're looking for something to have going in the background while you play a game or something, this is a reasonable choice. If you're looking for something to keep your attention fully, probably not.

There are definitely some high points in the movie, but they do not make up for the overall boringness, nor do they make up for the fact that, like with Sucker Punch, none of it matters anyway because, without giving away any spoilers, the end basically makes the rest of the movie irrelevant anyway, which basically makes you feel like you wasted a couple hours

1.0 out of 5 starsBad endings make bad movies
Verified purchase
The ending is the most important part of a story. A good ending can make a bad story bearable and it can make a good story great. But a bad ending? A bad ending can make a good story bad and a bad story terrible. Patient Seven is a bad story. Its haphazard and has no focus. It tries to incorporate too many horror elements to the point of absurdity. And the ending? a series of small circumstances that allow him to escape and terrorize people? that's a bad ending. A bad ending to an already bad story. I would never recommend this. If you find yourself thinking about watching this film, don't. Rather, go watch Shutter Island. It takes the same concept but employs it in a way that is actually good.

2.0 out of 5 starsIt's more of a collection of short films than anything
Verified purchase
It seems as though they've tried to take a bunch of short films that were made totally separate from this film and integrate them so they fit into 1 overall story. It really doesn't work well here. The short films they've tried to integrate seem totally and completely separate from the story that this film is trying to tell. I'm not sure how to explain it better than that. Bottom line: if you don't like horror "shorts" then skip this one. And I do believe zombies are finally out of style(or not "trendy")--this film included 2 different shorts about zombies. Has plot holes in places and the story doesn't make sense in parts--disappointing ending also.
