***May contain some spoilers***
Three women, Jennifer, Ellie and Natalie awaken on a medical table to find themselves sewed together and able to control different parts of the same body. Together, they embark on a journey of revenge and seek out the person who did this to them.
The Gore Factor
To first see the stitch work of the newly created body will make you cringe. As the body moves, it gives off crackling sounds as if the bones are stiff. In this respect, the special effects work was well done as to the patched body. The most gruesome part of this film is when the new and improved three person lady is seen eating all sorts of foods in a most unpleasant way. I’m sorry, but spaghetti and whip cream do not go together.
The Grave Review
Patchwork was an interesting film because the way in which it conveyed various points was creative. For example, in the film, the three women are pieced together as one woman. As a result, the women can talk to each other because not only do they share the same body, but they also share the same mind. In order to clearly depict the conversations between the women, the women are often in various rooms together having conversations together which represents their thoughts. This helped to make the story line much clearer and less confusing. In this way, the story line was well done and interesting. In addition, there was a nice twist in the end.
Patchwork (2015) separates different segments of the film explaining how each woman came to be in this predicament. However, often times, the mini stories felt irrelevant to the main story line. There is even a point in the film where the newly improved lady goes on a rampage killing everyone. This too felt irrelevant and pointless.
Nevertheless, Patchwork (2015) was a decent film and worth a one time watch if for no other reason, to bring back Frankenstein-style horror.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews gives Patchwork (2015), two and one-half graves out of five graves.
