Storyline

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?

our sleaze factor goes up to 11
17 February 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Patrick the comatose invalid with mind powers is back in this in-name-only sequel to the Austailian telekinesis snooze-fest "Patrick". This one starts of as boringly as the original, but thankfully the sleaze of this film's final hour has replaced the yawns of the first one. Not for the squeamish, but gore wise it's definitely no worse than the atrocious "Gunia Pig" movies, although one scene in particular is hard to stomach even for more seasoned gore-hounds. I'll put it this way, if you find yourself slumming for low-grade horror, you could do worse. But you could do a lot better as well.

My Grade: C+

DVD Extras: Interview with Gabriele Crisanti; interview with Gianni Dei; Slide Gallery; Theatrical Trailer; Trailers for "Else Freuline SS", "Eaten Alive", and "Lizard in a Womans' Skin"

Eye Candy: Mariangela Giordano, Carmen Russo and Anna Veneziano each bare all
