Patrick attempts to have more jolts per minute than any film ever, yet doesn't stick a single jump scare. Bathed in atmosphere, this very well shot throwback to 40s and 50s mad scientist horror, feels like a lost Hammer horror relic. Kathy, well played by Sharni Vinson, takes a job as a nurse in a house of horrors that's doing research on comatose patients. It's not before long that the evil comatose Patrick begins communicating with her with his psychic powers and she gets pulled further into this silly story with a mad scientist - a head nurse who is so serious she could only be employed in this place and medical research that usually involves creeping around spooky settings and angrily applying electro-shock. Half baked love interest subplot for Kathy and an ex of hers, is totally extraneous. Patrick is a fun film that pulls out every horror filmmaking trick in the book and while it's never scary for a moment, it's a solid genre effort.
