Culty Oz goodness on R1 DVD - It’s Patrick!

30 October 2008 5:21 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

For anyone who grew up in the mid ‘80s Canada and saw those hilariously awful informercials, the phrase, “It’s Patrick.  He took out life insurance.  Good for you, son!” might give you that warm and fuzzy nostalgic feeling.  It is a feeling you probably will not find looking into Robert Thompson‘s wide and memorably creepy eyes as he lays comatose in a hospital bed.  Patrick, a 1978 Australian Giallo influenced exploiter, features a fine pedigree behind and in front of the camera is neither warm and fuzzy or awful: It is quite the little gem.  This is no small accomplishment when your villain doesn’t movie, speak or even blink (outside of a pre-credit sequence) and is rarely even on screen.  Thompson, despite being the title character and the source of almost all the creepiness gets a lowly 8th billing in the films credits.  Great cinematography, a full orchestral score, »
