The ultimate story of supernatural terror!
Barbara Hershey stars as Carla Moran, a hard-working single mother until the night she is raped in her bedroom by someone - or something - that she cannot see. Despite skeptical psychiatrists, she is repeatedly attacked in her car, in the bath, and in front of her children. Could this be a case of hysteria, a manifestation of childhood sexual trauma, or something even more horrific?
Took me a second to realise that this is the film from which Tscherkassky made Outer Space and I can easily see why he de-constructed this. Furie dispels any sense of safety after the first five minutes framing literally ever shot during the more intense moments in a way so as to turn everything within it into an abstraction - making us feel as though we're glancing through at Hershey from the other side. I think it's pretty much pointless to even try and judge this as simply a horror film, a label which, no doubt, brings to mind the thought that this is a piece of sensationalism that rides off a concept which sounds very much like just…
De verdad os digo que no os fiéis de ninguna crítica de 'El ente' que no destaque lo increíblemente certera que está Barbara Hershey y la absoluta excelencia de una puesta en escena que consiste en enlazar un plano perfecto detrás de otro, para crear algo que es mucho más que una película de terror con fantasmas; es un destilado perfecto de ambiguedad, histeria y tema sexual chungo. Y ojo, ya sabéis que no me importaría en absoluto que fuera SOLO una película de fantasmas, pero es que en este caso no lo es. Es mucho más.
So... every beat of this thing, until the huge recreation of her house in the gymnasium ending, is based on a true story...
You're lucky, movie. Real lucky.
Because, without that stone cold fact knocking you back into your chair, this film is kind of a 125-minute torture fest that ends metaphorically the same way A Serbian Film ends. (Which is to say, it won't.) Deciding to make a horror film that is non-subtextually about rape could be viewed as not-the-wisest of choices. Especially when there is never once any explanation about how or why it's happening, which always threatens to render it a gratuitous and sadistic device, and it opens a freaking huge can of worms like Ghosts Have…
Equal parts Posession and Poltergeist, The Entity is a disturbing horror movie that features an amazing performance by Barbara Hershey.
The Entity throws its audience into the deep end right off the bat, and from there on, pretty much anything could happen. Barbara Hershey gives all that she has to the role, and then some. Her performance makes already disturbing material all that more disturbing and hard to watch.
The Entity is not an easy watch, but it is a very interesting one.
After a lot of complaining from my part, finally my city is hosting a Horror festival! Anamoty of Fear is showing for free classic horror movies from the 80s and I decided to start with The Entity, one of the very few from their setlist I hadn't seen yet.
The Entity is absolutely fascinating! It's such a breath-taking and unconfortable experience, and what impressed me the most is how everything works perfectly, it hasn't aged a single bit. Barbara Hershey's performance is an instant favorite! There are lots of memorable moments and it is the biggest influence for one of my favorite contemporary movies, Insidious, which was quite a surprise for me. The soundtrack and the twisted camera angles stood…
1.- James Wan: El Origen.
2.- El Ente se folla a Poltergeist.
100% without a doubt the scariest film I have ever seen.
MAKES U ACTUALLY NOT WANT TO BE IN ANY HOUSE, EVER.
Very intense haunted house film that feels fresh and innovative next to a lot of other similar films from the same time.
This is one of the most intense and rough paranormal movies I've ever seen. Barbara Hershey gives an incredibly brave Oscar caliber performance in this creepy and well made horror film.
Note: The main "attack" score was borrowed by Quentin Tarantino for a scene in INGLORIOUS BASTERDS.
Note 2: Ron Silver is my favorite cinematic scumbag.
Note 3: This is a really unique ghost movie in that the fact that they never explicitly show the ghost is a rarity for these sorts of films.
Watching this alone. In the dark. On Halloween.
Apparently I AM dumber than I look.
A disturbing, difficult but very interesting movie.
Why have I not seen this film before? Multiple phantasm!
This film freaked me out as kid. It's been years and years since I've seen it. It doesn't freak me out now, but it still has it's moments. Re-watching it now it's amazing to see how much the Insidious films took from this. Plus how similar the music is to the music used in IT FOLLOWS. The ending is a bit hokey, but overall it's a decent spooky horror flick with some nice psychological overtones.
Because the ghost rape market segment was underrepresented.
We're about half way through the Underrated Series and have finally reached one of the big genres. I'm expecting lots…
