This CARRIE-inspired telekinesis-centered film from down under stars Robert Thompson as the title character, a young man who has been in an irreversible coma for three years, ever since his mother and her lover were killed in an electrical accident. As it happens, Patrick is their killer,

and although comatose, he still has a powerful sixth sense which allows him to move objects through mind-power. He falls in love with Kathy (Susan Penhaligon), the nurse who cares for him, and leaves her love notes psychically written on her typewriter. In time she concludes that Patrick is

causing strange occurrences in the hospital, as doctors and nurses who would like to expedite his death beginning dying themselves. Moreover, Patrick wants his beloved to commit suicide so she can join him in death. Director Richard Franklin went on to direct the more interesting ROADGAMES and

PSYCHO II. The US version of PATRICK, like MAD MAX, has poorly dubbed American voices over the Australian ones.
