A couple of important points about this DVD release to start with, Amazon have the wrong region code, the disk is region 0 so can be played on any DVD player and also there is no synopsis included in the description so I'll give a short overview here.

The central plot on the Visitor focuses around Sateen, an immensely powerful evil force from another planet, he could take on many different guises including bird and human. Sateen came to Earth to mate with human females and spawn a race of children who would inherit and carry on these powers, (it should be mentioned you don't see any of this, it's all given in an explanation in the opening scene). Katie Collins (impressively played by Paige Conner) is one of those children and she is approaching her eighth birthday. The Visitor (John Huston) is a man who is sent to Earth to save Katie's sole and in doing so will stop Sateen's evil legacy from multiplying any further.

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 film 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 film is fairly old (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. The Visitor is very much a film of it's time and would be better received by people who were children/teenagers in the 70's and 80's.

Producer Ovidio G. Assonitis has some truly mental films in his filmography. Amok train, a film about a murderous train, Beyond the Door, an Exorcist knock off that ranks as one of the weirdest demonic possession films i've seen and James Cameron's directorial debut, the utterly deranged Piranha 2 where the ante is upped from the Joe Dante original by having the fish fly through the Air. The Visitor however, makes all these seem like child's play. Essentially it plays with the Von Daniken notion that God was a space alien and uses it to construct a tale of good Vs. Evil set in Atlanta. It seems the film-makers were given free access to the city for exterior shooting and in fairness they really make the most of it!

The film is a genuine oddity. The best comparison I can make is The Omen mixed with liberal doses of 2001 a space odyssey. if Damien thorn had a pet satanic hawk, legendary actor/director John Huston is playing 'god', Lance Henriksen as Satan and a cameo from Django himself Franco Nero as Jesus. We also get a Cameo from director Sam Peckinpah thrown in for good measure. While the film is baffling and frankly may give some a headache, its got a certain style to it and a level of oddness that makes it one cult film fanatics may find worth seeking out. I can say with all certainty that you will have seen nothing like it.

The disc is sadly region locked, so unless you lucked out and got one of those hackable Phillips players or have a second region A player set up, then you won't be watching this. Unfortunate as like with their Ms.45 release, Alamo Drafthouse have delivered a phenomenally good looking (and sounding) transfer of this film that manages to one up code reds release from a year or so back. Unfortunately it's missing most of the bonus material from the code red Dvd release including the two commentary tracks so fans should keep hold of those DVD's. If you can play it then this is well worth it still for the astonishing transfer.

Not quite sure why I like this movie but I do. It's a fairly patchy and confused horror/scifi story but with much imagination, a very impressive cast and a strange compelling quality that makes the viewer watch to the end. Reminds me a little of some of the themes explored by the Blue Oyster Cult in song over the years. Despite its faults I rather enjoyed it.

PS. Don't take the big eyeball guy on the cover literally - the malevolence is more of the unseen variety.

This is certainly a very confusing movie to follow at times with its twisted and surreal story and strange imagery, then again if you dig a bit deeper into your imagination and get every different angle to the story together from different sources then it starts to get a little clearer, by sources I mean the interviews on the disc from the stars and writers who all have different opinions, in a nut shell the story is about a demon or the devil as such who has found his way on earth and has taken over the body of an 8 year old girl whom likes to play messed up games and murder people etc a strange group of exorcists are in charge of finding her so they can take the evil part away, it all plays out a little sci-fi with a horror exorcist like theme mixed in as this was the film they originally wanted to rip off indirectly, the cast is great especially the young girl Katy Collins played by Paige Conner, the movie has some great effects too and a crazy soundtrack, if you love these old classic movies from the 70's and 80's it well worth checking out especially now its got such a great Arrow release.

Arrow Blu-ray has great picture quality. plus you get the DVD version.
Booklet and reversible cover.
A couple of interesting interviews with the writer and star Lance Henriksen. Trailer
90mins, Region B, 1978.
