Arrow Video - Join the Cult!

You may think you’ve seen it all, but NOTHING can prepare you for The Visitor! The ultimate excursion into B-movie madness, this 1979 cinematic oddity from schlock producer extraordinaire Ovidio G. Assonitis, director of such deliciously guilty pleasures as Beyond the Door and Tentacles, brings together an extraordinary ensemble cast in a mind-bending tale of a girl and her pet hawk.

At first glance, Katy Collins is just like any other normal 8-year-old girl – but appearances can dangerously deceptive. As it turns out, Katy is the Earthly incarnation of an ancient evil by the name of Sateen – an intergalactic supernatural entity who was vanquished many light years ago. Katy possesses tremendous powers making her capable of great destruction – powers which some are keen to eradicate, and some to harness…

A veritable cult phenomenon thanks to its recent re-discovery, The Visitor combines stunning imagery, incredible set-pieces alongside a truly jaw-dropping cast list which includes John Huston, Mel Ferrer, Shelley Winters and Franco Nero appearing as Jesus!

‘The Visitor’ is a fantastically febrile fantasy that certainly doesn’t outstay its warped welcome!

Frequent visitations to this sinisterly strung-out, reality-rocking Sci-fi/ horror oddity ‘The Visitor’ (1978) may inexorably lead to the permanent emancipation of your sanity! And for me, maverick, mystic-minded director Giulio Paradisi’s cosmic-comic horror/Sci-fi/fantasy movie mash-up is one of the more uniquely twisted, psychotically psychedelic brain-tripper’s ever made! While 'The Visitor’ aggressively makes Swiss cheese of celluloid convention, takes lurid liberties with your fear-fried noodle and is scurrilously steeped in narrative incongruity, if perceived to be a purely ‘hallucinatory experience’, rather than simply being dismissed as just another disposable, quick-fix, trash-movie time-waster, Paradisi’s terrifically transgressive, majestically mythic, not infrequently miscellaneous, ‘The Visitor’ is a fantastically febrile fantasy that certainly doesn’t outstay its wickedly warped welcome! - Be aware that the film IS drugs, so it is strongly recommended that ‘The Visitor’ not be taken with any additional psychoactive substances, since pronounced and debilitating side-effects are inevitable and perhaps wholly irreversible!
