Greetings, all. Ambush Bug here with a special AICN HORROR: ZOMBIES & SHARKS exclusive clip from Drafthouse Films upcoming DVD/BluRay release of the cult classic THE VISITOR!
I reviewed THE VISITOR a while back when it had a limited theatrical run and said I would let you know when it was going to be available for all and now it is! Dubbed as “The Mount Everest of insane ’70s Italian movies,” THE VISITOR sports an eclectic cast including Lance Henriksen, Shelley Winters, Glenn Ford, Franco Nero, Mel Ferrer, Sam Peckinpah, and John Huston in the lead role. The film mixes elements of STAR WARS, THE BIRDS, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, and THE OMEN, yet feels like a quirky fever dream from either a madman or a genius. Check out the synopsis if you don’t believe me;
An intergalactic warrior joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic 8-year-old girl and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. Multidimensional warfare, pre-adolescent profanity and brutal avian attacks combine to transport the viewer to a state unlike anything they’ve experienced – somewhere between hell, the darkest reaches of outer space and … Atlanta.
The kind folks at Drafthouse Films have passed on this exclusive Easter Egg starring Lance Henriksen from the DVD/BluRay release of THE VISITOR!
And here’s the trailer for the film!
Find out more about THE VISITOR here and look for it coming to DVD/BluRay on March 4th (that’s next Tuesday)!
