Nice crop this year. Revelations reminds me of a classic Twilight Zone episode about a prisoner trapped in a never-ending nightmare. Patient Z is the flat-out definition of a high concept premise -- wish I'd thought of it.  Ink & Bone's logline reads like the premise of a Stephen King novel. I didn't go gaga over Troll Hunter, but I liked director Andre Ovredal's creativity. Really looking forward to see what he does with something like The Autopsy of Jane Doe.
