Directed by Richard Franklin
A comatose patient uses telekinesis to kill in this terrifying Australian horror classic. Lying quietly in his hospital bed, one might mistake Patrick for a hopeless case. But Patrick’s more than meets the eye, and when he becomes fixated on his nurse, he starts using his powers to stop anyone who tries to come between them. Few who saw PATRICK’s final shocking scene ever forgot it, including Quentin Tarantino, who referenced it in KILL BILL. The film’s success outside Australia led director Richard Franklin to Hollywood, where he wound up directing the great PSYCHO 2. Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.

In many circles, this is seen as a classic. With me, I expected better. While the film has plenty going for it- there's a good story in here and there are some suspenseful moments in the second half- I feel that this wasted my time at the end. Seriously, what kind of ending was that? I like a good slow burn, but if the ending sucks then what was the point? It's not shocking as said in the description.
A litle long, but not bad!
It’s okay. A little derivative, but great cast. I loved Sharni Vinson in You’re Next and I love Rachel Griffith in anything. To be honest, I thought her character was far more interesting than the fairly predictable titular character.
