PATRICK / Filmways Australasian - 1978

Here's a fun little flick from down under that goes like this... After causing the death of his mother and her lover, Patrick lays comatose in a small private hospital, his only action being his involuntary spitting on people. When a pretty young nurse begins work at the hospital, she senses that Patrick is communicating with her, and he seems to be using his psychic powers to manipulate events in her life.

The movie starts with Patrick just laying on his bed, not much going on here on the surface.

He finally gets fed up with his mother and her boyfriend having sex and frolicking, so, goes into the bathroom and tosses his heater into the bathtub, and... Ka-Zappo!!

I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our full spittoon, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here are some sounds from... PATRICK!

Sister Williams welcomes nurse Kathy to the hospital, her assignment is to help take care of the comatose patient, Patrick.

The doctor there likes to experiment on Patrick, he's trying to get Patrick to snap out of his condition. Nothing works, frustrating him.

Then, Kathy brings her doctor pal to the hospital to do some tests concerning Patrick's potential psychic powers. But, Patrick is not cooperating...

Later though, when the night nurse comes change his diaper, we get to see Patrick finally turn his head and he give her an evil glare.

You can hear the nurse scream and the neon light explode at the end of the sound clip.

Sister Williams is on Patrick's hit list, he causes her to fry herself in the electrical room.

Patrick then brings on the pain when the doctor tries to do more experiments on him, invisible forces basically beat the crap out of him!

Patrick is in love with Kathy, you can tell from what he's typing out on the typewriter.

He wants her to choose between him or her separated husband. Once she chooses her husband, Patrick's life force is gone and Patrick is now dead. There's a lot more to the story, so, pick up a copy if you'd like to see all the action.
