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 Assonitis, director of such 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.

Any attempt to decipher the exact plot of The Visitor is an exercise in futility, but somewhere amongst all the madness and mayhem - killer birds, exploding basketball hoops and a Sam Peckinpah cameo - is the tale of an ancient intergalactic entity capable of bearing Earthly children endowed with great powers. One such child is young Katy Collins, and woe betide anyone who tries to get in her way...

A bizarre mish-mash of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and 70s possession movies such as The Exorcist and The Omen, The Visitor combines stunning imagery, breathtaking set-pieces and a truly astonishing cast list which includes John Huston, Mel Ferrer, Lance Henriksen, Shelley Winters, and Django's Franco Nero.
