THE VISITOR (1979)

Transient

Director: Guilio Paradisi. Cast: John Huston, Shelley Winters, Glenn Ford

A little girl is possessed by an evil entity called Sateen (which I always thought was a sheet fabric) and becomes the focus of a battle between good and evil as represented by John Huston (playing an angel) and a bunch of nasty businessmen who run a basketball team. This completely nonsensical Italian Omen rip-off is a total trip featuring weird murders, exploding basketballs, alien abductions, a wild soundtrack and a climactic killer pigeon attack. The star-studded (and embarrassed) cast includes Shelley Winters as a spiritual-singing nanny and Franco Nero in a cameo turn as Jesus. From the people who brought you Tentacles. Be warned!

METEOR (1979)

Director: Ronald Neame. Cast: Sean Connery, Natalie Wood, Brian Keith, Karl Malden

Transient

A giant meteor heads toward Earth and the planet is doomed unless the Americans and Russians can find a way to work together and destroy. Depicting the destruction of St Moritz, Hong Kong and New York City in lurid detail, this terrible disaster movie features an all-star - not to mention desperate - cast going head-to-head with pages of dreadful dialogue and a giant meteor that looks like an old potato shot in extreme close-up.

SKYJACKED (1972)

Transient

Director: John Guillermin. Cast: Charlton Heston, Yvette Mimieux, James Brolin

Charlton Heston loads a bunch of Hollywood has-beens and 70’s celebrities onto a 747 bound for Minneapolis, little realizing that one of the passengers is an insane Vietnam vet (hammed to perfection by Brolin). Soon the plane is headed for Moscow, everyone starts having flashbacks and a woman gives birth to the cleanest baby ever born. This hilarious disaster movie has daft characters aplenty including Rosey Grier as a hulking jazz cellist.
