Patrick, a young man whose father runs a remote spa, is injured in a roadside incident and is in a coma. Some years later, during the off season, five people arrive at the clinic - an ambitious politician and his wife, a swimming star who's the son of a wealthy investor, and a tough-talking man and woman who arrive together but sleep in separate rooms. They're greeted by Lydia, the doctor's new assistant, and by two viciously barking dogs. The dogs' keeper warns Davis, the swimmer, to leave. In a locked part of the clinic, Patrick is in bed, wired to three comatose bodies. What sinister purpose does the doctor have? One by one, the guests meet trouble. Does Patrick have feelings?

100% Nutty Exploitation from Italy!
12 May 2016 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Patrick Still Lives (1980)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Patrick is standing by the side of the road when a speeding van passes by and someone throws a bottle out. It hits Patrick in the head and soon he is in a coma. His doctor father attached him to some weird machines and soon he's using mental powers to kill a bunch of people staying at a nearby resort.

PATRICK STILL LIVES comes from Italy and is a fake sequel to the 1978 Australian film PATRICK. If you've seen that movie then you might agree that it was a well-made film but at the same time it was rather boring and didn't feature enough action to keep it moving. This Italian film on the other hand isn't all that well-made but it's so crazy, so over-the-top and silly that one can't help but love it for its exploitation gold.

It should be noted that the producer, screenwriter and one of the actors would follow this film with BURIAL GROUND: NIGHTS OF TERROR. If you're familiar with that nutty zombie film then you'll be happy to know that this movie here is just as stupid and crazy. The only difference is that this film doesn't feature a creepy kid. This movie does feature wall-to-wall madness in the form of non-stop nudity. There are four beautiful ladies in the cast and all of them strip completely nude and leave nothing to the imagination. My research has shown that any sort of bad filmmaking can be resolved with beautiful Italian women in the nude.

Not only do we get non-stop nudity from the beautiful actresses but there are also some crazy death scenes. When I say crazy I do mean crazy including one that has a female character being stalked by a metal pole and guess what happens when she crawls up on a table and spreads her legs? You can guess it. A more detailed effect of what we saw in CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST. Mariangela Giordano, from BURIAL GROUND, has a part here as does the beautiful Carmen Russo who is drop-dead gorgeous and the story tries to sell it that her husband isn't into her sexually. Right.

PATRICK STILL LIVES isn't a classic film by any stretch of the imagination but it's pure Italian trash and comes highly recommended.
