Patrick

Patrick

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'd always avoided this movie, as a Carrie take-off with the telekinetic character comatose never sounded that appealing, but this works pretty well. Some nice camera work, good humorous bits that don't undercut the horror, and a good job by the actor playing Patrick.
