Critic Reviews of "Patrick"
The DissolveMarch 24, 2014
Director Richard Franklin [...] eventually lets Patrick's powers go haywire, but the first half of the film combines sinister atmosphere-building with a justified faith that an immobile killer is still an ever-present threat.

One of Australia's commercially successful genre films of the 70s, a supernatural thriller
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)August 27, 2003
Tepid little chiller -- like a horror version of Tommy.
Not Coming to a Theater Near YouNovember 26, 2002
It is a film that resists visceral shocks, favoring the horror of its psychology. A shame, for its psychology is only slightly horrific.
