Drafthouse Films to rerelease whacked-out '70s horror film 'The Visitor' this Halloween -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

What do legendary directors John Huston and Sam Peckinpah, Poseidon Adventure actress Shelley Winters, Lance Henriksen, a “cosmic Christ figure,” a demonic  eight year old girl, and the fate of the universe have in common? They all feature in the obscure 1979 sci-fi-horror film The Visitor, which Drafthouse Films has announced it will rerelease in remastered form this Halloween weekend (a VOD/digital and home entertainment release will follow in January of next year.)

I can’t claim to have seen The Visitor myself. But Drafthouse Films creative director Evan Husney describes the film as having “the highest JDPM (jaw-drops-per-minute) ratio out of any movie we’ve ever encountered.” And if it is even half as entertaining as last year’s Drafthouse-distributed, chop-sockey gem Miami Connection then it will definitely be worth taking a look at.

You can exclusively check out artist Brandon Schaefer‘s poster for the rerelease of The Visitor above.
