‘Some assembly required’

Patchwork is a 2015 Canadian-American comedy horror film directed by Tyler MacIntyre from a screenplay co-written with Chris Lee Hill (Tragedy Girls). The movie stars Tory Stolper, Tracey Fairaway and Maria Blasucci.


Three young women go out partying one night and find themselves Frankensteined together in one body. Now they must put aside their differences so they can find who did this and exact revenge!



” … the film gets a bit more Re-Animatory with an owl-cat hybrid, some stumbling remote control zombies and a lot of limb-lopping and power-tool surgery, but the best material involves the three women and their erratic killing spree cum consciousness raising session. The three lead actresses are on the money, with Stolper especially delivering a tour de force.” The Kim Newman Web Site

“Not much in the way of scares – but the frequent and well-done gore will have you laughing and gagging simultaneously. Honestly, whether in the operating room where Stitch was brought to life, or during one of the many murderous rampages to find her/their killer, there is no shortage of bloody fun…” Horrorfreak News

“The acting by the three ladies is superb, as was the overall story. The humour hit home more often than not, and the makeup effects were excellent. While the sadist in me wishes that it was a little gorier, there’s still plenty of brutality here being doled out by the creature.” Bloody Disgusting

“Tyler MacIntyre’s film Patchwork is a riotous take on the Frankenstein story by way of Stuart Gordon. The writing by MacIntyre and his writing partner Chris Lee Hill (This Hour Has 22 Minutes) is strewn with humor and cartoonish violence.” Twitch


Patchwork is a highly entertaining, funny, twisted and original take on the classic Frankenstein mythos. It features fine performances, solid directing and great use of practical make-up effects; one piece nearly stole the entire film. MacIntyre’s film is very much Re-Animator for a new generation of genre fans.” Film Pulse

“Having more meaning than most lends an endearing intelligence to “Patchwork” not often found in this kind of film.  Equally genius about the presentation is that none of the messaging is heavy handed.  There is enough subtlety that subtext can be ignored if one chooses, and the meat of the movie can be enjoyed as unadulterated horror humor no matter what.” Culture Crypt


“The film pulls no punches with the ultragore, which is a part of all the fun. Those who long for the 80s blood-drenched horror films have a new film to fawn over as this film sloshes around in the red stuff with unabandoned glee.” Ain’t It Cool News

Patchwork is gory and hilarious, a campy horror comedy at it’s best. While it’s got inspirations from splatter films like Re-Animator and Brain Dead, I can also feel the influence of modern, female lead horror comedies, such as Life After Beth and Jennifer’s Body. It never takes itself too seriously and it makes it a fun ride from beginning to end.” UK Horror Scene

“While the three women may be represented brilliantly throughout the film as existing all at once inside the mind of the hapless creature, the bulk of the physical acting falls squarely on the shoulders of lead actress Tory Stolper. Ms. Stolper is a breath of fresh air as she nails every single detail of this role.” Dread Central
