It all starts with a few words:
"Her name is Katy Collins. She'll be eight years old..."
Let the chase begin.
Welcome to the weird world of The Visitor, a bizarre genre mash-up from 1979 that has continued to leave audiences scratching their heads for over 30 years. Drafthouse Films have blindsided cinema fans by re-releasing a lovingly restored and uncut version of this obscure and fascinating 70s gem! Contraband Cinema is proud to present a special screening of this looney masterpiece on July 12th at Eyedrum.
Attempting to describe the plot of the film is a delightful challenge.
Is it a science fiction version of The Bad Seed?
The Omen meets Close Encounters of the Third Kind?
You be the judge!
Starring a wide-range of cult movie personalities that range from Lance Henrikson (Aliens, Pumpkinhead), Franco Nero (Django, Enter the Ninja) and Joanne Nail (Switchblade Sisters, The Gumball Rally) to classic movie legends Glenn Ford (The Big Heat, Gilda), director John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre), Shelley Winters (The Night of the Hunter, The Poseidon Adventure)... and Sam Peckinpah (director of The Wild Bunch and Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia)?!
Based in and filmed on location in Atlanta, this unique screening is adding a new and exciting element: We are inviting all Atlanta artists to participate in a one-of-a-kind art exhibition that will feature new and original pieces based on or inspired by the film. The Visitor is overflowing with memorable scenes and surreal images that completely lend itself to be captured in any medium. The possibilities are endless!
