In Patchwork, three women are frankensteined together by a mad surgeon. This is easier said than done since we need the three leads to interact, somehow. A premise like this one has limitations, so the abomination, for lack of a better term, escapes, and tries to figure shit out to thicken the plot. This results in three undead chicks having discussions as if they were still distinct entities.
This is a small concept easily fleshed out when you start telling its various arcs anachronistically. Chapters are introduced with title cards. This accomplishes two things. First, we’re thrown right in the action, from the get-go. Second, we end up caring for people we didn’t initially know. Like its protagonists, this story is stitched together broadly. And it works.
The acting is particularly good, especially when taking into account the script’s peculiarity. Tory Stolper plays the three-person hybrid. She does a great job with an unprecedented character. She does, after all, play several people at once. Kudos to the make-up department for making this as realistic as possible. They did an amazing job on her and on the gore.
