The Visitor

Directed by
Michael J. Paradise

Central Cinema’s LATE SHOW presents an essential bonkers midnight Franco Nero space-jesus twilight zone movie, shot in Atlanta, Georgia. We live for this stuff, and this is as guaranteed as good times get.

“Perhaps the most fun you can have in a movie theater without risking permanent brain damage.” – David Ehrlich

John Huston stars as an intergalactic warrior who 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. Multi-dimensional warfare, pre-adolescent profanity and brutal avian attacks combine to transport the viewer to a state unlike anything they’ve experienced… somewhere between Hell and the darkest reaches of outer space.

“[It wows] cult fans, connoisseurs of the absurd, and cinephiles intrigued by the evolution of the sci-fi and horror genres in the ’70s and ’80s.” – Boston Globe
