1.0 out of 5 stars Another world, another time May 2 2011
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I have no idea what this movie is about. Usually I'm able to unravel weird, symbolic, bizarre movies, or at least vaguely comprehend what's going on.

But with "The Visitor," I don't have a clue. It's like somebody threw "Rosemary's Baby," "The Omen," "Star Wars" and other successful movies of the 1970s into a blender, and splattered the resulting mush all over a surrealist painting. It's a rich, atmospheric tapestry of derivative lunacy, so insane that it's actually funny.

It begins with John Huston doing his best Ben Kenobi impression in a desert, facing off against a cloaked figure. Then it snows. Then we see some blonde guy (who is... Jesus Christ?) telling a bunch of bald children about Zatin, a shapeshifting alien criminal "muTANTE" with occult powers who was hunted down by an army of trained birds. I can't make up stuff this cracky, folks.

Apparently the main focus of this story is Katie Collins (Paige Connor), a creepy little devil-child who makes basketballs explode. Raymond Armstead (Lance Henriksen) wants to marry her mom Barbara (Joanne Nail), apparently because she alone "carries the genes of Zatin."

However, John Huston wants to save the world from devil-brats. So when the forces of evil arrange for Barbara to be shot and later impregnated, John Huston and his army of Jesus-following bald children must save the world from her, by convincing her to join the side of good (over a game of Pong).

Make no mistake: "The Visitor" is a really bad movie. But it's not Uwe Boll-bad, where every shot and line screams of ineptitude.There is just so much insane, illogical stuff going on in "Visitor" that eventually you get numb to it and think, "A killer toy bird. Why not? Jesus Christ versus aliens mutants. Makes sense!

5.0 out of 5 stars Praise Be To Code Red Oct. 6 2010
By fleurnixon82 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Code Red have been promising a DVD release of The Visitor since about 2007 and I honestly never thought this would see the light of day. But here we are, three years on and only 18 years from my first viewing of the film that I credit with introducing me to the horror film genre. This was in fact the very first horror movie I ever saw, and being only 10 years old at the time it was the scariest thing I'd ever witnessed.
Taking into account this movie is fairly old (over 30 years) times change and it doesn't seem nearly as frightening as it did back then, coming across more eerie then terrifying in the present time. As previous reviewers have pointed out, this movie may make very little sense, but to my mind that's intentional and that doesn't mean that no though has gone into it. Symbolism runs throughout (the recurring appearance of birds) and the soundtrack fits perfectly with the movies overall image. The Visitor fits in very well with the era it was made in and would be more understood by people who were children/teenagers in the 70's and 80's (look out for Katie enjoying a game of Pong before bumping off the house maid). I would recommend if you like your horror retro and with a heavy dose of surrealism. This isn't for fans of special effects laden, mainstream, modern horror. The Visitor isn't supposed to be a cinematic masterpiece either, but personally, I love it. It's definitely one for fans of movies like Theatre of Blood, Martin, Suspiria, Inferno and Deep Red.

Make no mistake: "The Visitor" is a really bad movie. But it's not Uwe Boll-bad, where every shot and line screams of ineptitude.There is just so much insane, illogical stuff going on in "Visitor" that eventually you get numb to it and think, "A killer toy bird. Why not? Jesus Christ versus aliens mutants. Makes sense! The scion of evil causing mayhem at the skating rink. Whatever!"

And unlike Boll's work, it's beautifully filmed and very evocative, with some very creepy scenes sprinkled throughout the story. The problem is that not a single beautifully-filmed scene in the whole thing makes sense or is adequately explained.

Eventually you just slide into a sort of accepting stupor and have an out-of-body experience, andf you are foolish enough to try to THINK about any of the ridiculous stuff you're watching, your brain will combust. Even the soundtrack is hilariously illogical -- we get epic, dramatic 70s music at the weirdest times. She's doing EVIL gymnastics in a RED leotard! Surgeons are putting on MASKS! Someone's pouring a DRINK! Huston is walking up STAIRS! And looking at a ROOF!

As for the acting, most of the actors look completely befuddled about what they're doing. Huston twinkles genially like a sort of New Age Gandalf, despite the fact that he was clearly filmed apart from the other actors. Connor is actually rather good as Child Of Evil Katie, even though the role doesn't require much.

Henrikson tries his best but makes little impression, and Nail is so creepily plastic that it's hard to connect with her unlucky character. And Italian actor Franco Nero is rather good as, uh, Jesus -- but his performance is constantly undercut by the question of what he's doing there!

"The Visitor" is a movie of beautiful, polished insanity. Instead of taking recreational drugs, I advise you to watch this movie -- it has the same effect, but without the harmful side-effects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange, weird, completely insane... yet strangely compelling film Aug. 19 2011
By Robert Torres - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I remember my interest in this film being piqued by seeing a trailer for from Code Red, and the images that were shown held me spellbound.

When I saw the film itself... there was something unique and oddly compelling about this strange amalgamation of quasi-religious, pseudo-sci-fi, and semi-occult and supernatural horror film.

I know this film isn't for everyone's taste, even my own wife, who loves this film can't seem to get over the very weird movie score that is attached to this film. She feels the epic, over the top orchaestral music tha crops up from time to time in the film belongs to a 1970's buddy cop film rather than this strange rip-off of 'The Omen'.

I love this film because its unique, and its entertaining. The young actress that played Katy Collins was a real stand out and definitely shined in what I think is her only film role to date. She could exude sweetness and a beguiling smile when in the presence of her mother and her would-be stepfather (played by 'Millennium' star Lance Henriksen), while her eyes reflected a certain mischievous amorality. This is very much in evidence in one of the opening scenes at the basketball game when she's watching the final seconds, and just for fun, to keep the other team from winning, by just lowering her sunglasses and with a mischievous look and a devilish smile, she causes the basketball to explode. Her amorality is also in evidence at her birthday party when she opens her birthday present, which earlier contained a mechanical bird, and pulls out a handgun which she thinks is a toy, she throws it on the table, it goes off injuring her mother, and she gives off a look as if to say 'oops, my bad'.

She was also capable of moments of barely restrained anger, like in the scene when she accuses the cop of following her of being a pedophile, or even in her scenes of chasing after John Huston's character Jerzy through the Hall of Mirrors.

The film is shot beautifully, I believe it was shot on location in Atlanta, Georgia. and there are incredible set pieces, like the Collins home... the Hall of Mirrors, the mysterious room featured at the beginning and the end of the movie (possibly Heaven?) where Jerzy and Jesus Christ(?) watch over a group of bald headed children (possibly cherubim?).

There is a great deal not fully explained in this film, and that's just fine. The imagery on display and the symbolism within the film can help me make up my own mind about what's happening, and that's just the way I like it. After all, 'The Visitor' sure as hell isn't a BORING film.

To me, bad films are films that bore me senselessly, or if I find that the whole isn't greater than the sum of its parts. 'The Visitor', is one of those films that I thoroughly enjoyed and had a lot of fun watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars DVD looks great, while the film, well.... Oct. 31 2010
By S. Boone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Code Red used to show all the films they planned to release on their website, but they removed them, so I was told, because people were bugging them when the releases did not come through. And The Visitor was one of those films that they had listed SEVERAL years ago, and now it's finally out. The DVD looks great, and it's actually a visually stunning film at times. It's also of Italian origin and has collected certain themes from other films and has that Italian distinction for films of that time of not making much sense at all. But for me, that's OK, because I LIKE these kind of films. And Ovidio Assontis is involved (Beyond The Door, etc.) so you know it's going to be weird. I guess the gist of the film is that there's this woman that's given birth to a gifted little Bad Seed (Katy Collins) and while one group led by Mel Ferrer and Lance Henriksen want her to apparently give birth to yet another, John Huston and Shelley Winters want to deal with the one that she already has. The film does sport an all-star cast (including Glen Ford, Sam Peckinpaugh, even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar). It also seems to rip off everything from The Omen to Close Encounters. I still rather enjoy it though, and as I said the DVD looks great. And I can finally retire my aged VHS tape. Thanks Code Red!

4.0 out of 5 stars Deranged fun. Aug. 16 2011
By Max Renn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
You shouldn't judge the Visitor by comparing it to better made films. This works more as a cult movie night pick. Call up your friends, break out the booze, fire up this weird gem, and enjoy a riotously stupid and stupendous viewing experience.
