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!
