Considered by many to be cinema’s most colossally bizarro achievement. First you'll notice the odd cast: Shelley Winters, Mel Ferrer, Glenn Ford, plus legendary directors John Huston and Sam Peckinpah! Then the plot: An 8-year-old girl with telekinetic powers becomes the prize in a fight between God and the Devil. But the campy horror flick gets really ambitious when we learn she's carrying an inter-spacial force, whose main mission is to convince her mother to bear a male child with whom she will mate. The world wasn’t ready for “The Visitor” in 1979, and it still may not be!
