5.0 out of 5 stars Good, with a few flaws July 28, 2007
Format:DVD
The Final Patient is the story of Dr. Dan, a small town doc who is rumored to have unique abilities. When a local boy gets trapped under a 6,000-pound tractor, Dr. Dan rushes to the rescue and hoists the child free. Rumors run rampant...it is here the story begins.

The two core actors, Bill Cobbs (Dr. Dan) and Jason Scott Campbell (Willy), put in very solid performances. They hold the screen during the middle act, keeping us riveted where many actors would fail. They are the glue of the movie. Because of them, you will keep watching.

The story is unique, fresh, and for the most part a joy to watch. Please remember that this a lower budget indie, so what you get is a simple, intelligently written story, as opposed to the usual Hollywood grind. This is a good thing.

I like this movie, and would watch it again. It has a few flaws, namely some herky jerky and distracting camera movements that occasionally draw you from your immersion in the film, and some horribly over-acted, over-dramatic minor actors. You will get your fair share of exaggerated facial expressions and insecure, flat dialog in the first 15 minutes. But hang in, things get much better.

Another flaw is the last scene. It didn't feel right in the movie. A mysterious butterscotch candy wrapper(s) lying on the hospital bed would have been a more suitable ending for the feel of this flick.

Please see The Final Patient. Give some love to this indie film. It deserves a viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked gem. January 23, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
With all the hollywood sequels and remakes, great little independent horror films like this are easy to overlook. This is far better than most of the lame horror films being released recently. It is odd, ambiguous, freaky and a lot of fun. The highly original storyline is helped along nicely by fine acting from Bill Cobbs, ALex Feldman and Jason Scott Campbell. I also have to say that I didn't see the ending coming! This is certainly not a gore fest but it does provide a fare share of genuinely creepy moments and I found myself liking it a lot. Echo Bridge has given the film a first rate bluray transfer with good PQ and an uncompressed 5.1 soundtrack. There are also a few making of documentaries, deleted scenes and a director and producer commentary. This is a great release and an excellent movie worth checking out.

4.0 out of 5 stars a campfire tale well told June 30, 2007
By C. Cruz
Format:DVD
This is one of those little gems that you love to unearth. It's a tale made for those of us not suffering from Attention Deficeit Disorder. First you start with a premise that seems unusual to say the least, a retired black doctor in a small all white town. Then the good writing, acting and direction make you believe it. You get caught up in the story and hardly notice the hairs on the back of your neck begin to stand up as you put the pieces together.

3.0 out of 5 stars SO SO June 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A retired, somewhat disabled doctor has some kind of "elixer" that makes him super-man strong and early on lifts a tractor off a young boy. The young boy's friends tell the sheriff and their account of happenings are discounted. A former neighbor returning home from college and his friend hear about the story and figure if it's true, they could get the secret and make big bucks. They go over doc's house for dinner and the doctor tells them about books he came across years ago with this formula in it. The doctor has a few beers (supposedly he should not drink alcohol with this "elixer"), passes out and they start wandering about the house to find the doctor's notes. The doctor's wife whose face is never shown til the end who is ill with some undisclosed ailment and who is apparently off her rocker, comes downstairs in the dark (a storm has knocked out the electricity), takes one of the snakes the doctor uses for his "elixer", puts it one of the young men (at which point he is bitten) and it seems he's dead. She stabs the other kid in the neck. Then the kid with the snake bite appears, grabs his friend and they escape from the house which at this time has somehow caught on fire (I don't remember how). These are the events which lead up to the scene at the beginning when the kid with the neck wound is in the hospital saying the doc's wife (who is dead) is appearing to him. The story is interesting, but not scary at all. This is one I would have rented and not bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Home Remedy... May 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
THE FINAL PATIENT stars Bill Cobbs as Dr. Dan Green, an aging small town physician w/ a severely ill wife. The good doctor, despite his age, appears to possess superhuman strength and vitality. Two young med students set out to learn Dr. Green's secrets. Unfortunately for them, there's a hefty price for such knowledge! Cobbs is excellent in his role, both kindly and mysterious. PATIENT reminded me of some of the better NIGHT GALLERY episodes from the early 70s. Nice and creepy w/ a malevolent twist...

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT BAD April 21, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A great concept for a "B" movie and very well acted, even the antagonist is pretty good. Good Plot and twist to the story with some unexpected surprises. Good for a midnight movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE July 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Usually I rip these low budget spooky flix apart. They also usually deserve it. This was a very inexpensive Blu ray and I love to poke in one of these haunting stories late on a rainy night when I can't sleep usually because my pain meds haven't kicked in yet. It can be a wonderful diversion if the movie turns out to be a good one. Often times, I find myself disappointed in the writers efforts or the poor decisions of the directors.

Tonight, on a rainy Saturday night, I was pleasantly surprised for a change. I plan to keep this one and take it over to mom's and let her enjoy it. The story moved along like a big budget production. It followed a logical path and looked like anything but a frightening tale for most of the movie. Yet the story was interesting as old Doc saved a young boy from a tragic accident but appeared to be unusually strong for his age and condition while saving this kid. The story develops from there as the people of this small town are naturally curious about these occurrences. The acting was strong, especially by Bill Cobbs who I have seen in other movies. He's a very good actor.

This movie is not anything like ALIEN except that the novelty of the story reminds me of that fine movie. It's an unusual tale that doesn't involve ghosts or real monsters. But the delivery is definitely creepy. Great effort! I really enjoyed it. Some of these movies I watch and then give them away for others to enjoy. But, like I said, I will be keeping this one in my CREEPY LIBRARY! Spend the five bucks for the Blu ray and enjoy it. I believe you will.
