Patrick Will Snap You Out Of Your Coma!

Out in a beautiful Anamorphic Widescreen edition DVD (on Oct. 28th) is Patrick, an above average 1978 Australian chiller directed by Richard Franklin. Susan Penhaligon plays a young nurse who gets a job at a private clinic where she finds herself bedsitting a patient who has been in a coma for three years after electrocuting his mother -- Patrick (Robert Thompson). But Patrick has special telekinetic powers and stars hurting people close to her. A good Carrie-like thriller, intelligently done and very effective.
