Product Description

Amazon.ca

Following in the bloody footsteps of Brian De Palma's Carrie comes Australia's offering of telekinetic terror. Part twisted love story, part supernatural thriller, Patrick tells the story of a comatose patient (Robert Thompson) who falls in love with his nubile new nurse, Kathy (Susan Penhaligon). Sadly enough, his only means of communication are via electricity, spitting, and general death and destruction. Suspense mounts as Patrick begins to infiltrate Kathy's life, and head nurse Matron Cassidy (played wickedly by Julia Blake) develops evil schemes of her own. Director Richard Franklin (Psycho II) manages efficient performances from the cast, and upon release Patrick was nominated for Best Film by the Australian Film Institute (but played the drive-in chain in the U.S.). This may not be the frightfest promised in the tag line ("Patrick is in a coma... yet, he can kill"), but Patrick still proves to be an interesting diversion and provides some absolutely terrifying glimpses of late-'70s fashion. --Matt Wold

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good Australian horror thriller March 11 2009
By Michael Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this film on tv as a kid many years ago and found it very interesting even then. A young sociopath named Patrick kills his mother and her lover, ends up in a coma. A young nurse tends to him only to discover theres something a little....unusual about her patient. Pretty soon, bizarre deaths and accidents start to occur to people around her. Could the comatose Patrick be responsible????? Good character performances from Susan Penhaligan, Robert Helpmann as the cranky old doctor at the medical institute, and more....Strong creepy film.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent supernatural thriller with no surprises Sept. 20 2010
By Trevor Willsmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Richard Franklin's Patrick is a horror movie that doesn't horrify and, seen more than three decades on, doesn't offer any surprises, but which still works as a decent supernatural thriller. Susan Penhaligon is the newly separated nurse who takes a job at a private mental clinic that only seems to have two patients (well, it is a low budget film), looking after the braindead Patrick whose been reduced vegetative state since killing his mother and her lover years earlier. Only Patrick's brain isn't quite as dead as everyone thinks, and when he develops a crush on his new nurse and gets jealous when her husband and another doctor make moves on her, things start to get a bit nasty...

Robert Thompson makes for a striking Patrick, his bug-eyed dead stare memorably imposing, but it's Robert Helpman's doctor who all but steals the show: looking like Klaus Kinski's dad after a night on the tiles, not so much a mad scientist as an acerbically p---ed off one, he's gifted with the film's best dialogue and doesn't feel the need to overplay it. The film itself is not as good as his later Road Games, but it's still easy to see why it got Franklin the job of directing the much better Psycho II: it's an exploitation film that doesn't feel the need to go over the top and is directed with some style despite the obvious budget limitations. It's not a good enough film that the planned remake by Not Quite Hollywood's Mark Hartley can't improve on it, but in its original Australian version at least (the US version was heavily cut and redubbed into American while the re-edited Italian version added a Goblin score, so be sure to get the special edition DVD for the original cut) it's a pretty decent little movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars He is not a SAINT! And it is not your DAY!! Oct. 23 2008
By CLINT BRONSON - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Well look what is coming this Oct. PATRICK! I have had to watch my AWFUL vhs copy for years and though in truth this is no masterpiece of HORROR it does have its moments. Patrick begins with poor Patrick electrocuting his mother and lover and being taken to a hospital for the trauma has left him in a coma. But poor Patrick has not just been lying around; quite the contrary, as he's developed a powerful telekinetic ability TO KILL!!! This is a enjoyable blatant rip off of CARRIE and despite the handicap of dubbed in accents(no big deal to lovers of ALL HORROR films)this film builds suspense and SCARES quite well. Gave it only 3 stars for could really have done with out the obligatory CARRIE final jolt ala FRIDAY THE 13TH & just recently THE STRANGERS...Been done to death

5.0 out of 5 stars creepy May 29 2013
By lar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the movie was a blast from the past, a creepy little Friday night late late type show,
the kind of film that would capture your imagination and set it spinning on a cold freaky
dark night covered up with a blanket with a good bowl of chips in hand!
also, I think Patrick is quite a cutie!
