Patrick still lives, a very unofficial sequel to Richard Franklins Aussie sleeper, is a sleazy masterpiece of unprecedented power. Loaded to to brim with nasty gore and near hardcore sexploitation imagery, entertainment doesnt get better than this.
Yes, the plot is stupid. Our psychic psycho gets a bottle to the head and succumbs to a coma in which his angry dad makes him get revenge on those who supposedly were at fault. Stupid yes, but it gets the job done and Patrick does lots of nasty things such as poker through the vagina and out of the mouth, hook through the neck and carwindow to the neck, all in glorious, graphic detail. The special effects arent exactly Dick Smith material but are ok for such an obviously low budget movie. To top it of, the direction is lazy and uninspired but all that gore and closeups of masturbating women, and the site of a very well maintained 43 year old Mariangela Giordani in her best milfmode parading around wearing next to nothing raises the entertainment value next to a Kaiju movie. Gloriuosly gory trash. And to top it off, the movie is shot in the same house as Burial ground! Go and get it NOW, or Patrick will make you masturbate in front of him! Be sure to get the unrated version of course.
