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.

Clever idea and really creepy.
I watched this years ago on HBO when it was good, pretty creepy film
pretty good for its era in psychological horror. the amount of deaths seems low but i think it was a right amount for the story. patrick was a good villian. i do think the description upsells the movie a bit to much leaving some feel unsatisfied.
The movie was good but I felt it could have been so much better in my opinion! I was expecting more kills throughout the movies but I only saw three kills! Still good just not great!
