Retropath & Laser Blast Film Society: THE VISITOR – 40th anniversary!

Calling all nostalgia-freaks and celluloid junkies! Are you looking for the latest cinematic thrill? Retropath! has you covered. Specializing in the best flicks to stumble onto the screen, this series is guaranteed to deliver the wildest that cinema has to offer. This screening is co-presented by The Laser Blast Film Society!

“The sci-fi/horror epic that 1979 couldn’t handle. An intergalactic warrior joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic eight-year-old girl and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance!

One of the holiest of all Holyf*ckingsh*ts, THE VISITOR is a wonderful mishmash of THE OMEN, THE BIRDS, ROSEMARY’S BABY, STAR WARS and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS — but even that barely hints at the fervor with which director Giulio Paradisi hurls his cast (John Huston, Glenn Ford, Shelley Winters, Franco Nero, Lance Henriksen and, yes, even Sam Peckinpah) into the cinematic void.

Just when you think you’ve nailed down which direction the film’s heading in, THE VISITOR shatters your notion of the time-space continuum with a blackhearted blowout of interplanetary possession, telekinetic avian assault, exploding basketballs and ecclesiastical laserstorms. If you miss out on this one, then you have as much regard for cinema as you do for a discarded toenail clipping.” (AGFA)

Our screenings would be nothing without our freaky sponsors: The Beguiling and Eyesore Cinema!
