Movie Info

When a retired physician performs a miraculous feat that catches the attention of two curious medical students, their attempts to discover the secret behind the doctor's unique abilities yields a horrifying discovery. A small boy has become trapped beneath a five-ton tractor. Though the child faces almost certain death, his life is mercifully spared when elderly doctor Daniel Green (Bill Cobbs) somehow manages to lift the massive vehicle off of the boy with ease. How could a mere mortal accomplish such an amazing feat? Realizing that it would take much more than mere adrenaline to move such a foreboding piece of farm equipment, two medical students who happened to be passing through town at the time of the accident travel to Dr. Green's isolated farmhouse to speak with the celebrated hero firsthand. It seems that as the reclusive doctor advanced in years, his fear of death drove him on a desperate search for the fountain of youth. Despite the fact that he was successful in unlocking the key to immortality, Dr. Green's remarkable discovery has come at a horrifying cost. Now, as night falls over the countryside, these two curious medical students are about to discover just how unwise it can be to meddle with Mother Nature.

Audience Reviews for The Final Patient

I do not fully agree with the critics. The Final Patient was both intriguing and suspenseful. Cobbs was phenomenal as the lead and the art direction was so authentic that as a viewer, I bought into the storyline. Yes it is absurd, but with good acting and beautiful sets, it was enjoyable.

horrible. i saw this in it's original cut before "release" *cough cough* which made more sense than what was released on DVD. the widely-available cut is still too long and boorish and fails to deliver at the climax which is literally delivered in the dark. don't waste your time. bill cobbs is the only good thing here.

The story itself is of course absurd, but somehow Cobbs almost makes you want to watch it if only to hear a few more of his stories.
