This limited edition release features a hard slip cover and a limited edition exclusive 80-page book with a new essay by Alan Miller, exclusive extracts from director Richard Franklin and producer Antony I Ginnane’s unpublished memoirs, archival interviews with screenwriter Everett De Roche and special-effects supervisor Conrad Rothmann, and full film credits.

This package contains three presentations of the film: the original Australian theatrical version (113 mins); the shortened, re-dubbed US theatrical cut (97 mins); and the Italian-language version, featuring an alternative score by prog-rock legends Goblin, presented with English subtitles for the first time (102 mins).

From director Richard Franklin (Roadgames) comes Patrick, a terrifying fusion of science fiction and Hitchcockian thriller, starring Susan Penhaligon (House of Mortal Sin), Robert Helpmann (The Red Shoes), and Robert Thompson (Thirst).

Murderer Patrick (Thompson) is kept in a comatose state between life and death, under the watchful eye of the eccentric Dr Roget (Helpmann). When he is assigned a caring new nurse, Kathy (Penhaligon), he becomes possessive, and uses telekinetic powers to torment anyone who comes between them.

Produced by Antony I Ginnane (Snapshot), written by Everett De Roche (Harlequin), and scored by Brian May (Mad Max), Patrick’s unprecedented international success made it a landmark of the Australian New Wave.
