Critic Reviews for The Visitor
[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.
Perhaps the most fun you can have in a movie theater without risking permanent brain damage.
The great surprise is how, consistency be damned, these individual sequences fascinate.
The special effects are quite chintzy, Sam Peckinpah casts barely a shadow of humanity - and then there's the teeming flock of birds. This is Cheez Whiz that barely cuts it as a cult staple.
Audience Reviews for The Visitor
Badly directed, photographed, written and acted this terrible thing provided a paycheck for several slumming highly regarded actors in supporting roles and the opportunity to watch two horrible performances by the two lead actresses. A real stinker.
Not quite sure why I like this movie but I do. It's a fairly patchy and confused horror/scifi story with a very impressive cast and a strange compelling quality that makes the viewer watch to the end. Reminds me a little of some of the themes explored by the Blue Oyster Cult in song over the years. Despite its faults I rather enjoyed it.
Completely insane and what a cast! Not particularly good, but no self-described cinephile will be able to turn away.
