Patient X trailer online
The trailer for Yam Laranas' Patient X has arrived online and I have to say I'm not entirely sure what to make of it. The film uses the creature from Filipino folklore called the Aswang, a vampiric creature that groups together and hunts for human entrails, preferably living.
Laranas released the very good Sigaw (Filmstalker review) back in 2004 which helped him leap to Hollywood to helm a remake called The Echo. Now he's returned home with this horror film.
Patient X certainly looks interesting, and there's enough there to draw you in, but I think you have to know what Yam Laranas is capable of to be sold on the film through this trailer, for it does feel a little lose with the storytelling. I think perhaps another edit might bring us something a little stronger.
