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 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.
