Italian filmmakers from the 70s break-a you face with plutonium-grade sci-fi weirdness when a kindly Obi Wan Kenobi figure warps time & space to pursue unspeakable evil made manifest on Earth (pron. "Euhth") in a little blonde gym brat in Atlanta GA, with a little snot-nose attitude & no respect for gun safety. After her pet falcon murders a police detective in a Bananagrams™ sequence that ends in dozens of auto insurance claims & a fiery explosion, the bird takes a moment to exult in the dark glory of its own mastermind bird-ssassination. An eccentric crew of bald men in matching sweatshirts veer dangerously close to Kraftwerk-inspired choreography on rooftops. A roomful of eminences grises strongly encourage women's healthcare. The ice skating bullies will probably need chiropractors. The noNBA Atlanta Rebels face off against the San Francisco Miners (with an 'm', yes) without the benefit of shorts that fit or a three point line. Eventually a tow truck shows up. True to the source there's a lot of shrill, screechy sound stabs & scenes with glass breaking in slow motion. True to the evil child milieu, rehabilitation comes with some collateral damage. Bonus material: robot pigeon switchblade! CR

"The Mount Everest of insane 70s Italian films."-Mondo Digital
Not to be confused with the much better known Richard Jenkins film of the same name, 1979's "The Visitor" is little bit sci-fi, a little bit horror, and a whole lot of crazy. Some ingredients: a possessed little girl (a la "The Exorcist"), directors John Huston and Sam Peckinpah (both acting), killer birds (a la "The Birds"), a woman in a wheelchair, Lance Henriksen, a different planet, Shelley Winters overacting (does she ever do anything else), bald dudes, Glenn Ford meeting a grisly end, a groovy score, an Italian director who spoke little English, and, why not, space Jesus (Franco Nero). I don't know where Drafthouse Films founds this, but bless them because it's gloriously nuts.

The trailer made it look like it was like a Jodorowsky film, but it was a huge disappointment. It is incredibly dull and pointless. The bad reviews that it received when it was first released are spot on. Its just plain boring.

Just to add a different opinion than the one given, I enjoyed this movie in all of it's ridiculous, cheesey, psychedelic madness.
