Editorial Reviews

The original Ozploitation classic is back like you've never seen it before: Robert Thompson (THIRST) stars as a comatose killer seemingly unresponsive in a small private hospital. But when a hot new nurse (Susan Penhaligon of THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT) begins to question his condition, Patrick will unleash a waking nightmare of psychokinetic carnage. Sir Robert Helpmann (The Child Catcher in CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG) co-stars in this international hit shocker produced by Antony I. Ginnane (TURKEY SHOOT, DEAD KIDS), written by Everett De Roche (ROAD GAMES, RAZORBACK) and directed by Richard Franklin (FANTASM, PSYCHO II), now transferred in HD from the original negative for the first time ever and loaded with new and archival Extras never before available in America.

FINALLY! The complete Australian language version of Richard Franklin's gem from 1978!

An enigmatic young man kills his mother, and winds up in a coma in a private hospital. Enter the pretty nurse who discovers Patrick has capabilities no one seems to know (or admit) about.
For those that are thrill seekers, this film is not a fast-paced action-packed story. BUT, for those of us that appreciate characters over wild thrills, and enjoy careful buildups to a final reveal, this one is nicely done. There IS a reason it was an initial success and has gained a big cult following, people understood Franklin's intentions.

Sure, Patrick is not Citizen Kane, but it is a nice mystery with great performances, a keen sense of humour ("self-referential humour" as it has been described), and some rather strong adult content for what was supposed to be a PG-rated film, even back in 1978. I first saw it theatrically and was surprised by its content, but appreciated the homages to Hitchcock (which Franklin carefully points out in many scenes on the DVD's commentary), and Brian May's score has a nice Herrmann-esque feel. I was only disappointed that it was dubbed with American actors. Finally seeing this film in the original Australian language version on DVD made me like this film a lot more 25 years later.

Synapse's 2009 edition is anamorphic widescreen (Elite's out-of-print DVD is not) and has the basic extras: two theatrical trailers, a commentary by Franklin and writer Everett De Roche. There's an easy to find easter egg (on the Elite edition at least) that features cover art for different soundtrack releases as well. The filmographies are quite thorough, for fans of Australian cinema.

This film is one of the creepiest, most suspenseful films you will ever watch. The "comatose" reviewer below must have been just that, because he needs to change his bong water. I would defy anyone to watch this movie and not be engrossed. Fine acting throughout, this isn't some chessy film by any stretch. If you liked a movie like "Dead Calm", for instance, you'll like this one.

Normally Severin Films makes sure they have the complete uncut version of the film before they restore it. Unfortunately, I'm guessing they could only procure the rights to the American version of the film that runs 96 minutes. I dug through my DVD collection to find my original Patrick DVD and sure enough it is the complete uncut international version from Elite Entertainment which runs 112 minutes. The reason I noticed this was because the ending on the Blu-ray version seemed different from what I remembered and didn't deliver quite as well as it should have. So if you have the Elite Entertainment collector's edition DVD, hold on to it.

UPDATE July 23, 2014
This is the complete international uncut version of the film. Severin only made a minor mistake in printing 96 minutes on the back of the blu-ray case when in fact the disc ended at 112 minutes when I checked it. I really messed up on my original review. Sorry. For some reason I thought Patrick had a relapse back into facing his parents again that he murdered near the end of the film. Maybe there was a TV edited version that had alternate scenes, or deleted scenes I just don't remember.

Format: DVD
A young nurse named Kathy Jacquard (Susan Penhaligon) gets a new job at a psychiatric clinic. She is assigned to a patient named Patrick (Robert Thompson). Patrick has been in a coma ever since he murdered his mother and her boyfriend 3 years earlier. Kathy goes through her daily routine, until bizarre events start happening to her and to those around her. Kathy slowly realizes that Patrick, while quite immobile, is nonetheless able to manipulate people and objects w/ his mind. Ms. Jacquard's terror and frustration grow as Patrick attacks any men in her life. This movie has it's moments, but I did find myself wishing for a little more in the way of action. No, I wasn't expecting explosions or hundreds of grisly deaths. However, a few more sinister, telekinetic fatalities would certainly have upped the suspense and helped to move things along. As it stands, PATRICK is a watchable movie w/ a decent story. Watch for Rod Mullinar (Thirst) as Kathy's husband Ed. Julia Blake is very intense as the matron...

I first saw this film on tv as a kid many years ago and found it very interesting even then. A young sociopath named Patrick kills his mother and her lover, ends up in a coma. A young nurse tends to him only to discover theres something a little....unusual about her patient. Pretty soon, bizarre deaths and accidents start to occur to people around her. Could the comatose Patrick be responsible????? Good character performances from Susan Penhaligan, Robert Helpmann as the cranky old doctor at the medical institute, and more....Strong creepy film.

Richard Franklin's Patrick is a horror movie that doesn't horrify and, seen more than three decades on, doesn't offer any surprises, but which still works as a decent supernatural thriller. Susan Penhaligon is the newly separated nurse who takes a job at a private mental clinic that only seems to have two patients (well, it is a low budget film), looking after the braindead Patrick whose been reduced vegetative state since killing his mother and her lover years earlier. Only Patrick's brain isn't quite as dead as everyone thinks, and when he develops a crush on his new nurse and gets jealous when her husband and another doctor make moves on her, things start to get a bit nasty...

Robert Thompson makes for a striking Patrick, his bug-eyed dead stare memorably imposing, but it's Robert Helpman's doctor who all but steals the show: looking like Klaus Kinski's dad after a night on the tiles, not so much a mad scientist as an acerbically p---ed off one, he's gifted with the film's best dialogue and doesn't feel the need to overplay it. The film itself is not as good as his later Road Games, but it's still easy to see why it got Franklin the job of directing the much better Psycho II: it's an exploitation film that doesn't feel the need to go over the top and is directed with some style despite the obvious budget limitations. It's not a good enough film that the planned remake by Not Quite Hollywood's Mark Hartley can't improve on it, but in its original Australian version at least (the US version was heavily cut and redubbed into American while the re-edited Italian version added a Goblin score, so be sure to get the special edition DVD for the original cut) it's a pretty decent little movie.
