Patrick (1978)

Horror, Ozsploitation 1h 36m 1978

“If there’s a seminal Ozploitation film, it’s arguably PATRICK. Together, the all-star Aussie team of schlockmaster producer Antony Ginnane, director Richard Franklin (PSYCHO II; ROAD GAMES) and writer Everett De Roche (RAZORBACK; LONG WEEKEND) shaped a fascinating film that blends Eurosleaze with Hitchcockian suspense. And, as its era’s most memorable hook: a coma patient who still manages to kill despite his infirmity.

Before he’s reduced to a vegetative state, mama’s boy Patrick (a creepy-as-hell Robert Thompson) goes psychotic when he overhears Mom screwing in the room next door, dumping a space heater into her tub which sends her and her lover up in flames. Years later, he’s the star attraction at a local hospital where Kathie has become a nurse. She’s assigned to Patrick, who’s been kept on life support by a doctor researching metaphysics. Patrick is supposedly unresponsive, but Kathie uncovers he’s developed a sixth sense. What she doesn’t know is he’s also developed an unseemly attraction to her – setting up one of cinema’s greatest screwy love entanglements.” - Brett Gallman, Oh The Horror!

All this… plus an unforgettable music score by Italian horror titans Goblin!
