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.

I really liked this movie GREAT!
What a mess. Slow start, slow middle, rushed end. Not much to really enjoy other than the special effects used, and the killer being creepy, even though he barely ever moves.
Slow, boring and extremely overrated with no rewards!
This movie was wild, be aware there is ACTUAL ANIMAL DEATH and some weird sex stuff I was not prepared for, so it’s slightly more traumatic than I had planned on. But it’s definitely worth a watch.
