The Visitor
The sci-fi/horror epic that 1979 couldn't handle. An intergalactic warrior joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic eight-year-old girl and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance!

One of the holiest of all Holyfuckingshits, THE VISITOR is a wonderful mishmash of THE OMEN, THE BIRDS, ROSEMARYS BABY, STAR WARS and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS -- but even that barely hints at the fervor with which director Giulio Paradisi hurls his cast (John Huston, Glenn Ford, Shelley Winters, Franco Nero, Lance Henriksen and, yes, even Sam Peckinpah) into the cinematic void.

Just when you think you've nailed down which direction the films heading in, THE VISITOR shatters your notion of the time-space continuum with a blackhearted blowout of interplanetary possession, telekinetic avian assault, exploding basketballs and ecclesiastical laserstorms. If you miss out on this one, then you have as much regard for cinema as you do for a discarded toenail clipping.


"[It wows] cult fans, connoisseurs of the absurd, and cinephiles intrigued by the evolution of the sci-fi and horror genres in the '70s and '80s." BOSTON GLOBE

"Perhaps the most fun you can have in a movie theater without risking permanent brain damage." FILM.COM

"The Visitor is unique in that while it fails in most every traditional respect with regard to narrative clarity or construction, it doesnt fall short as either entertainment or as a piece of craftsmanship. In fact, it excels at both, and as a result endures as one of the eras most indefinable, inconceivably progressive pieces of cinematic nonsense." SLANT
