1978In room 15 of the mysterious Roget clinic lies a young comatose murderer named PATRICK. His doctor thinks he's nothing more than 170 pounds of limp meat hanging off a comatose brain, but a young nurse, Kathy (Susan Penhaligon from THE UNCANNY), knows very differently. Patrick... has burgeoning psychic powers and a crush on Kathy - and his affection is about to turn into a deadly and bloody obsession! A classic example of Ozploitation cinema from acclaimed Hitchcock protege, Richard Franklin (ROADGAMES, PSYCHO II), written by veteran genre scribe Everett DeRoche (LONG WEEKEND) and also featuring Robert Helpman and Julia Blake, PATRICK is an unsettling tale of telekinetic terror, cunning and creepy to the last gasp. 2013 For three years Patrick has been lying mute and immobile, a patient in an isolated clinic where renegade neurologist, Dr Roget (Charles Dance, Game Of Thrones)conducts horrific experiments on the long term comatose, watched on by the glacial Matron Cassidy (Academy Award nominee, Rachel Griffiths, Six Feet Under). The arrival of a sympathetic nurse, Kathy (Sharni Vinson, Youre Next) awakens desires in Patrick and unleashes his pent-up psychic powers. When Kathy uncovers a shocking secret about his past, Patricks lust for her intensifies into a deadly and bloody obsession - letting no one get in his way. Based on the 1978 cult chiller and boldly re-imagined by the director of the acclaimed Not Quite Hollywood, Patrick is a superior, effectively nerve-rattling update(The Hollywood Reporter) that delivers a satisfying onslaught of madness and mayhem that should leave viewers suitably drenched in perspiration(The Guardian).
