UNCUT THE VISITOR screening this Saturday!

UNCUT THE VISITOR screening this Saturday!

Code Red and Cinefamily proudly presents the first time ever in L.A, the uncut International version of THE VISITOR

!1/26 @ 10:30pm / SERIES: ladri di cinema

The Visitor.

The holiest of all Holy****ingshits, The Visitor has the highest JDPM (Jaw Drop Per Minute) ratio of any film of its era, Italian ripoff or not. It's a wonderful mishmash of The Omen and Close Encounters, but that barely hints at the whacked fervor with which director Giulio Paradisi hurls his hastily assembled all-star cast (John Huston, Glenn Ford, Shelley Winters and, yes, Lance Henriksen) into the cinematic void, showering them with what Austin, TXs revival cinema gem The Alamo Drafthouse has called "a blackhearted blowout of interplanetarypossession, telekinetic avian assault, exploding basketballs, and ecclesiastical laserstorms." Just when you think you've nailed down which direction the film is heading in, it completely shatters your notions of the time-space continuum with enough force to rival a thousand screenings of Zabriskie Point. If you miss out on this one, then you have enough regard for cinema as you do for a discarded toenail clipping. Shown in a rare uncut print!Dir: Giuilio Paradisi, 1979, 35mm, 108 min.

611 N Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, 90036 / 323-655-2510© The Cinefamily and The Silent Movie Theatre.

I actually saw THE VISIOTR during its initial theatrical release! The audience all had stunned expressions!

Haha, oh my. Someone's "boycotting". I really get a kick out of this. But really, he doesn't actually think people care about what he says, does he?

Anyways, Code Red, weren't you going to have a new website soon?

If I lived close to the theater, I'd so see this. Until then, I'll just wait for the DVD.

Awesome (and packed!) screening at the CineFamily last night....I couldn't believe that so many willing victims came out in the downpour to subject themselves to such a cinematic atrocity. "The Visitor" was every bit as ridiculous and berserk as I'd hoped it would be. Paige Conner is my new favorite smart-ass 70's movie brat.

Did they screen a print or was it from a video source?

There have been way too many video sourced screenings at CineFamily for comfort...

Terrific. I see from CineFamily's new calendar that they are now noting the projection source, whether it's 16mm, 35mm, Digibeta etc. A commendable practice that will have me frequenting the theatre.

Read something on IMDB about this turd finally seeing the light of day on DVD. Can anyone confirm/deny this? I live 4 blocks from the Silent Movie Theatre, and had a gig that night. PISSED...

Did catch "Stunt Rock", and yes, my life was changed. Someone help the guy from Sorcery out and order a copy of the dvd. Won't pip the guy's site, but there's a fair amount of SR info out there on the Google.

Bring The Visitor back!

I went to this screening. It was awesome and I can't wait for the DVD.

The Visitor print was a rare one. So everyone was lucky to catch this screening.
