Product Description

Something is after Carla Moran. It wants her soul. It wants her body. There's no stopping it. And there's nowhere she can run. The Entity has come for Carla (Barbara Hershey). She doesn't know what it is or why it has chosen her, but she is its victim. It torments her in her bedroom. It attacks her in a friends home. It even seizes control of her car while she's behind the wheel and almost kills her. But The Entity won't kill Carla, because it has other things in mind for her. Dazzling special effects, powerful acting, a taut, tightly written script and imaginative direction all combine to make The Entity a powerhouse of a film that will rivet you to your seat

What can I say about this film that hasn't already been said?
Possesion has always been one of the most talked about subjects when the theme of horror crops up in conversation and this film is usually one that's at the forefront. This intensly dark chiller is "mentally disturbing" in the respect that it is based on a real life occurence. Forget your Amityvilles and poltergeists, this is the geniune article. Barbera Hershey plays an outstanding role of a woman who is mentally and physically abused by an unknown Demon that repeatedly rapes and tortures her. The thing that gripped me most about this movie, was the eerie atmosphere the director clearly and successfully aimed for.
All too often horror movies bore us with fake decapitations and lots of tomato ketchup- this movie however captures the essence of spine tingling nervousness - you can't see whats stalking her - but you know he's coming...that gives it a huge fear factor. Together with some first class acting from all of the cast, this film has been talked about for many years and will still be a topic of conversation for many years to come. Definatly one for the collection.

This may be an relatively 'old film' now but, my God, is it SCARY!
There's no bells and whistles when it comes to cinematic technology in this film but that doesn't even enter your head becuase your so engrossed.
It's based around a true story of a woman in the States that is frequently visited and raped by and invisible entity. This Incubus (correct name for the phenomenon) would manifest at any time of the day or night and carry out a brutal sexual attack on this woman.
After convincing the paraphsycology dept of the local university, they finally decide to create a replica of her apartment in their studios and ask her to live in it.
Whilst she is there, they monitor her progress with a view to capturing this entity by spraying liquid nitrogen on it.
This is the type of film that will pop into your head just before you go to bed at night and scare the livig daylights out of you!!
A Must!

Great horror film based on true events, Barbara Hershey was wonderful, if not award winning, the mad thing about this film is there is no gore or blood but it still scares the crap out of you, there are no special features on the disc well if you call a trailer special, but hopefully if they bring out a Blu-ray release there might be more, if you want to watch a film at Halloween then this film is a must.

Another true story of dubious authenticity, The Entity concerns a libidinous invisible presence. This unseen force repeatedly rapes poor Barbara Hershey, who can't get anyone to believe her stories of sexual assault. Frankly, she doesn't believe them herself until she undergoes therapy conducted by experts in both psychology and the supernatural. The entity, a great, hairy blob, is ultimately tricked into materializing, an act of revelation that proves to be its downfall. Adapted by Frank de Felitta from his own novel, The Entity is a classic horror of the '80s and a must for the collectors of the world..

This has to be one of the scariest movies I have seen (excluding the Exorcist) which I refuse to watch on my own!!!
Its about Carla Moran, who in the seventies, was sexually abused by poltergiest. Its supposedly a true story, but who knows...? Anyway the story is brilliant and so scary in places that it makes the hairs on your next stand out!!! Barbara Hershey plays a great part.
It starts off with Carla being raped in the bathroom by more than one entity. Her boyfriend, who drives trucks, is away often therefore shes alone at nights expect for her two kids. The entity starts following her around and she nearly has an accident whilst driving her car. She seeks medical help but the doctors think she just needs rest.
When finally someone believes her, he turns out to be an expert in poltergeist and their existance and brings in his crew to video all the goings on. I won't say anymore on the storyline otherwise it will spoil the ending which is brilliant. If you are a fan of the paranormal and love tense and scary movies, this is a must.
I think that I have seen this movie at least 5 times and I never get bored!!!

My sister and I watched this (bunking off school one day) when you could first hire VHS....we didn't know anything about the subject....omg did we crap our pants...watching it again now still gives me goosebumps. Could this be remade, yes, with CGI could be very impressive...Google the history of Carla Moran, doesn't sound like the woman was lying.

The title sequence in this movie shows a young woman attending night classes with dialogue that cannot be heard but music that suggests we will be witnessing something later which is going to leave us on the edge of the seat. Less than ten minutes later you are there but instead of being on the edge of your seat you are trying to sink into it. The music has become as dark as the night which two-thirds of the film is set in and you are left wondering when 'it' is going to strike next. This is perhaps the films greatest asset since it is only on one occasion where 'it' shows itself and this in itself is quite terrifying. This is made possible as well by the sheer look of horror on the principle characters faces notably 'Barbara Hershey' who excels in the role of 'Carla Moran' whose performance captures a woman who has gone through hell and back and become a stronger person if some what battle scarred emotionaly in the process. It should also be noted of the unusual camera angles this film encompasses and the attention paid to the smallest of details with regards to setting up the moment of possible danger. As i understand it this film wasnt very well received when it first came out in 1982 and the reviews i have read since then have been less than friendly. This is a shame but not entirely unexpected since when you are telling the story of a poltergeist raping a young woman then it isnt going to be for everyone. Based on a true story it has been told, but even if it were fictional there is no denying the power this movie holds especially in the comfort of a big TV, night time, and not another soul around.
