Saw this movie when I was 8 years old


And now I'm 28 years old and I still remember some parts of this film even though passed 20 years.

I remembered part where guy burned his hands on teapot and I remember patrick jumping window scene. I wake up in night crying to my mom and dad that I had nightmares about this movie. Especially I remembered patrick face which just felt so hounting.

Now that I watched it again I was bit dissapointed because there wasn't even thriller moments in it. I guess imagination is ones worst fear.

Decent movie none or the less 7(10. It wasn't boring to watch as story was intresting.

I saw this movie on HBO when I was 9 or 10, and it scared (scarred) the piss out of me. I couldn't sleep at all that night. All I could see when I closed my eyes was that final image of Patrick opening his eyes. That was 32 years ago, and the feeling I got from that film is still vivid. I'm curious to see it again...

it's the kind of movie that would haunt me as well as an 8 year-old. i saw "pet cemetery" around that age and i was afraid to close my eyes for at least a week after that. saw it again a few years ago and as expected didn't affect me at all after seeing a lot worse over the years.
"patrick" i saw just this week for the first time and i thought it was actually a well-made horror flick (even with a few editing issues here and there). didn't scare me though there was one "jumpy" moment at the end which i won't spoil.
