By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on May 2 2011
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!

HASH(0xa18cf894) out of 5 stars So terrible it's awesome. March 9 2014
By Eliphas Levi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I just don't know where to begin, because I want to defend what is unquestionably a terrible film . . . I mean, this movie is really bad. But it's entertaining, if you like bad horror films. Here's the reason to get this: the interviews of the screenwriter and Lance are priceless--just hearing them NOT defend their work on this film, it's worth the price of the DVD alone. The blu-ray treatment of the film itself is excellent, and the film is just . . . it's just insane. So dumb, so gloriously dumb. Finally, I must confess that part of my delight of owning this film---and the exquisite treatment of it by Drafthouse---is my own childhood. My parents took me to see it at a drive-in theater when I was seven or six--I cannot recall. Scenes from this film haunted me for a decade (mostly in nightmares). It is a joy to watch the film as a grown-up and sense why it bothered me so as a young person. It has some arresting imagery. And, it was shot in my hometown, so there's that. I guess I'm saying that it's hard to separate my enjoyment of this film with my personal history. Buy it if you enjoy very bad films---but this DVD, in particular, is wonderful because of the extras . . . the interviews had me laughing aloud. It's a really bad, crazy film. A lot of fun. But don't watch this expecting something it's not . . . it's terrible. And therefore glorious. I hope this makes sense.

HASH(0xa18cfae0) 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 thought 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. 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.

HASH(0xa18cfaa4) out of 5 stars The Omen: A Space Opera May 11 2013
By Stanley Runk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As everybody in the civilized world knows, back in the 70s and 80s, the Italians made big business out of ripping off American box office successes....but on much smaller budgets of course. The quality of the results is all over the map, ranging from godawful to awful-yet strangely fun and entertaining, to actually being very good and original(a good example being the birth of the "giallo" by more or less trying to rip off Hitchcock). The Visitor is somewhat of a curiosity. It's not a great movie-comfortably watchable, but it's very ambitious and "out there", more so than the standard Italian cash in.
Granted, the film isn't a 100% Italian production. It was a U.S/Italian co-production shot in the U.S. with a mostly American cast, but it had an Italian director, Italian crew and was produced by Egyptian-born schlockmeister Ovidio Assonitis.
The intent here seems to be a ripoff of The Omen. But this time around, instead of the evil child being the spawn of Satan, the child is the spawn of an evil alien prisoner named Sateen. Far out, eh? The "visitor" in question is John Huston(yes, you read that right! John Huston, the guy who directed The Maltese Falcon and The African Queen) Huston is an alien being who's sent to Earth to retrieve the evil child. Huston spends a great deal of the film watching her, taunting her, and even babysitting her(?). He's waiting on his winged reinforcements to make his move, ya see? While Huston waits and watches dazzling light shows in the sky from an apartment rooftop, the evil Katie does all those nasty things that evil antichrist-ish children do. She paralyzes her mother with an "accidental" gunshot, then kills the officer assigned to the case, played here by Glenn Ford(yes, the same Glenn Ford from the Blackboard Jungle). She makes fools of some preteen boys as the ice skating rink, uses bad language, plays Pong and a whole slew of evil doings.
Katie's mother, Barbara, is supposedly the only woman carrying the Sateen gene, so we have a Hail Sateen organization headed by Mel Ferrer who are hell bent on getting Barbara to produce a baby boy. This task they have assigned to Lance Henriksen, a basketball team owner and protector of evil alien children.
Also throw in Shelly Winters as a shady housekeeper and Franco Nero as a thinly disguised Jesus Christ(the guy who sent Huston on this mission), and you have, as I said before, a much more ambitious Omen cash-in than you'd think. True, the execution isn't the best it could have been, but the craziness of it all keeps you watching. Not to mention the random and inappropriate blasts of funky music that make you want to jump out of your seat and shake yo'ass while you were just getting into what was going on.
Too bad this dvd has already become scarce, but if you have the chance to see The Visitor, invite him in.

HASH(0xa18cfd98) out of 5 stars Another world, another time, another existence Oct. 3 2010

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.

HASH(0xa18d32ac) 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!
