The Visitor (1979)

Dark Matters Film Festival is cosponsoring the uncut theatrical rerelease of this utterly bizarro Italian fantasy/sci-fi/horror/whatchamacallit. Legendary Hollywood director/actor John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) stars as an intergalactic warrior who joins a Christ figure in a battle against a demonic 8-year-old girl and her pet hawk with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance. Think Rosemary's Baby crossed with Close Encounters crossed with The Omen crossed with Star Wars. Then take a lot of drugs. The inexplicable cast includes Shelley Winters, Glenn Ford, Lance Henriksen, Franco Nero and Sam Peckinpah. 100 minutes
