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.

Cast: Robert Thompson, Susan Penhaligon, Robert Helpmann, Rod Mullinar
imaginative if muddled story. more of a 70s oddity than anything.
For such a non-story, I still enjoyed it!
Woo boy, this movie takes forever to get anywhere, and where it gets isn't satisfying.
slow burn but it genuinely scared me. especially Kathy's naivety about the men around her. Susan Penhaligon elevates everything she's in. And yeah there's a lot of silly stuff in here, but, for a 70s movie, it's just got an average amount of silliness
I really liked this movie GREAT!
