The Visitor / New Digital Restoration

See Showtime Listings for This Week

Prepare yourself for the out-of-this-world theatrical re-release of the deranged Italian sci-fi/horror epic that 1979 couldn’t handle!

 

“The Mount Everest of insane ‘70s Italian movies.” – Mondo Digital

“It’s the schizophrenic mother of all ‘70s drive-in oddities. A ridiculously entertaining hybrid of Rosemary’s Baby, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Birds, Damien: Omen II and more.” – Village Voice

“A unique viewing experience … The Visitor is a weird, batsh*t crazy film.” – Geek Nation

 

In this unforgettable assault on reality - restored and presented uncut theatrically for the first time ever in the US - legendary Hollywood director/actor John Huston (Treasure Of The Sierra Madre) stars as an intergalactic warrior who joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic 8-year-old girl, and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. Multi-dimensional warfare, pre-adolescent profanity and brutal avian attacks combine to transport the viewer to a state unlike anything they've experienced ... somewhere between Hell, the darkest reaches of outer space, and Atlanta, GA The Visitor fearlessly fuses elements of The Omen, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, The Birds, Rosemary’s Baby, The Fury and even Star Wars creating the most ambitious of all '70s psychedelic mindwarps . Its baffling all-star cast includes Shelley Winters (Night Of The Hunter), Glenn Ford (Superman), Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Franco Nero (Django) and Sam Peckinpah (director of The Wild Bunch). (Dir. by Giulio Paradisi, 1979, Italy, dubbed in English, 108 mins., Rated R, Drafthouse Films) Digital
