I saw this movie in the theaters when I was 6. It scared the crap out of me then... Now I am 30 and it still scares the crap out of me. Wow! What an amazing horror/thriller. This movie is what a suspenseful horror film should be. The directing and cinematography are incredible. The story unfolds as it sucks you in and doesn't let go for a second. It's a shame these types of films are rarely made anymore. The atmosphere is nauseatingly creepy, the acting on every front is exceptional and the soundtrack is fresh and original. The fact that it is based on true events only adds to the <more>
scares. Why can't Hollywood make movies like this anymore? 25 years after its release it still holds up! If you want to have some serious nightmares watch it alone, at night with the lights off. I dare you...
This Movie Still Haunts Me 20+ Years Later (by egz-1)
This was the scariest film I have ever seen. And I have seen pretty much, every horror film made in the last 20 years. As a woman, the thought of an unseen entity consistently sexually abusing you is about the most horrifying thing I can think of. The scenes where she was being touched by the unseen being in bed next to her husband or in front of other people still haunt me today. And that first rape scene was horrifying. I still get the chills every time I think of this film. And after 20 years to still remember most of the scenes in detail is pretty incredible. There are not many films I <more>
can say that about. I sometimes think I might want to watch this film again, but then again, maybe not.... at least the images have faded a bit now after 20 years.
OH MY GOD, Why Has it taken ME so long to see this movie again, DAME this movie Was Absolutely Amazing. I have NOT seen for 20 years or something This movie dose not take long to start at all, It got me of guard and scared the hell out of me in first attack scenes.This movie was frightening good, I was on the edge of my seat for the whole movie, some of attack scenes were really hard to watch, I was actually trying not look at scene when it happened.Some scenes are really intense in this movie , I had shivers go down my backThe acting this movie was outstanding from the whole cast. I loved <more>
everything about this movie . I need to get this DVD as soon as possible This movie as also entered into my top 5 10 out 10 I Just Jumped cause a Door as just slam shut!
An excellent and supremely unnerving 80's feminist horror knockout (by Woodyanders)
Barbara Hershey gives a fiery, outstanding and wholly sympathetic performance as Carla Moran, a willful and fiercely self-sufficient young single California mother of three kids who's brutally and relentlessly raped by an evil amorous apparition. Carla seeks the aid of earnest, but incredulous psychiatrist Phil Schneidermann nicely played by Ron Silver and several of his fellow disbelieving shrinks, who all try to convince Carla that the whole Stygian ordeal is self-inflicted. Carla balks at their supercilious, coldly pragmatic theories and enlists the help of a group of eager, <more>
open-minded parapsychologists in order to rid herself of the maleficent lascivious spirit's unwanted attention.Most film critics tend to gleefully trash "The Entity" as a particularly absurd piece of crudely sensationalistic fright flick foolishness, but I personally think it's a fine, engrossing, refreshingly off-beat and often genuinely frightening the frequent phantasmagoric sexual assaults are quite violent and upsetting, realistically capturing the true horror and demeaning nature of rape itself supernatural horror thriller. Sidney J. Furie's tight, proficient direction effectively creates and sustains a tense, menacing, claustrophobic mood Furie's constant use of taut close-ups which usually center on Hershey do a bang-up job of forcefully rendering Carla's profound sense of dread and alienation . Insanely prolific unsung B-movie composer Charles "Invasion of the Bee Girls," "Cujo" Bernstein's wired, driving score I absolutely love the wickedly wailin' guitar! , Stephen H. "Something Wicked This Way Comes," "Body Double" Burum's fluid, mobile cinematography, and Stan "Aliens," "Pumpkinhead" Winston's typically stand-out make-up f/x contribute greatly to the picture's deeply unsettling potency. The themes of skeptics vs. true believers, science vs. psychology, and especially how difficult it is for a woman to be assertive and independent in a male-dominated society are keenly observed and neatly integrated into the compact, absorbing narrative "The Entity" at its extremely confrontational and provocative core is essentially a true feminist horror film about the many ways society tries to keep women in their place, with the ghost representing misogyny and male oppression at its most savage and unmerciful . Although not without its flaws at a rather bloated 125 minutes it's much too long and hence drags in spots , "The Entity" nonetheless overall makes the grade as a superior spectral spookshow.
With fangs as sharp today as three decades ago (by mecheart)
Most cinema genre fans remember fondly the few searingly ablaze films that irreversibly branded into their minds a fanaticism for a specific style of silver screen entertainment. Those cherished films were unforgettable for a variety of reasons all very personal to the individual. Sidney J. Furey's 1982 'The Entity' became such a movie for this reviewer. The phantoms that haunt Carla Moran helped to scare into me what would become a lifelong indelible desire to be terrified again and again of turning off the night light or peeking under the bed.I first viewed 'The Entity' <more>
in 1984 at the malleable age of eleven. I had spent the night at my grandparents' home - they alone of all the people we knew back then possessed a marvelous invention known as cable television - and with my grandmother's blessing I tuned into a late night horror double feature that included 'Five Million Years to Earth' followed by the 'The Entity'. The film terrified me then on a primal level and remains a frightening title today, though the fear it inspires now is more the intellectual variety than the afraid to leave the brightly lit room kind it evoked all those years ago.In a sense 'The Entity' represents the ultimate clash between science and religion. The plot uses the sciences of both study of the mind and physical disturbances on a molecular level to combat the great unknown manifested as violent entities that wreak torture and havoc on a seemingly stable enough young woman. These sciences - fields still in their frontier phases when the book and film were respectively crafted - equate to no more than the building of a campfire against the encroaching night and the beasts which stalk within flickering shadows.The film lays out for us a ghastly haunting, explores its many deeply psychological effects on its victim, and then finds for both the viewer and the protagonist a highly entertaining way to fight back, to push back the encroaching fangs of night. Where similar films of the era turned to religion for resolution, 'The Entity' introduces the concept and viability of the purely based in science paranormal investigator who rather than holy book, uses custom wired gizmos to lure in and detain bad spirits.Performances are solid throughout. Barbara Hershey's 'Carla Moran' is amazingly well played. We have no choice but to believe in her animal fear. Whether we identify with her, fear her or classify her as out of her mind is another matter although as events progress, little doubt is left as to what is really causing her world to shatter.Ron Silver brings us the quintessential skeptic in his 'Dr. Sneiderman'. He is a man with feet firmly planted in the science of his field, yet almost from their first meeting, he senses something different in Carla Moran's presence.What follows is one woman's life or death struggle with the ultimate unknown in perhaps its most terrifying manifestation. When our protagonist seeks desperate aid outside normal scientific channels her psychologist attempts to rein her in, thinking her delusional. As a team of paranormal investigators delve more deeply into Carla's situation, her doctor begins to recognize a real threat independent of her own psyche. Science and primal otherworldly evil clash in a spectacular finale unrivaled by any film in the intervening three decades.'The Entity' is a rare horror film that will get to you on some level, and it will leave you wondering for some time about the safety of your home, the validity of the reality in which we exist and the argument for the presence of unseen forces.Many modern films claim to be the most frightening cinematic experience you will ever have. 'The Entity' makes no such claim, however it a must see for true horror movie devotees and it is a film that might just make you a lifelong fan of the genre.
Usually, ghost stories are forced to stick to a formula that can best appeal to a film audience. However, there are certain films that refuse to follow that formula, including 1963's "The Haunting," and 1982's "Poltergeist." But the one film that takes the most risks would probably be Sidney J. Furie's 1981 film "The Entity." Supposedly inspired by a true story and based on a novel by Frank De Felitta, the author of "Audrey Rose" and director of "Dark Night of the Scarecrow," this film introduces us to a happy woman named Carla <more>
Moran. She has three children, a decent job, and good friends. But one night when Carla gets ready for bed, a force appallingly assaults her. From then forth, Carla is continuously raped and tormented by the invisible man, which later becomes known as "the entity." While she knows that her life may be at stake, no doctors or parapsychologists can help her. She must face the supernatural force herself and finish it off once and for all."The Entity" succeeds at doing what "Poltergeist" did so well. It ably balances jump-out-of-your-seat scares and genuine suspense, the scares especially. The rape scenes are definitely shocking and hard to watch, even when you don't see much.Although "The Entity" is an extremely effective ghost story, one flaw is evident, and that is the character of Dr. Sneiderman. He refuses to believe that Carla was molested by a ghost and always tries to back himself up with scientific and psychological proof. I believe that the smarter decision for Carla would have been to abandon this person since he never seems to trust her. However, Ron Silver does a great job in the role, allowing us to lovably hate him.The effects are quite good, and the story is daring. But the main reason to see the film is Barbara Hershey as Carla. This is as brave a role as the many other characters she has played in her career. She is tremendously likable and sympathetic, and in the assault scenes, no special effects are visible to us. Hershey doesn't look like she's acting, making her performance all the more believable."The Entity" isn't the best ghost story ever made, but it's one of the best. It's creepy, bizarre, and suspenseful. And it takes enough risks to qualify as a good enough movie. And the climax is unforgettable. It may be a little flawed, but trust me. It's worth it.
Disturbing recreation of apparently true events (by mjw2305)
'The Entity' is a disturbing account of what are supposed to be true events, obviously they are the usual dramatisation's and alterations to the plot to heighten the viewing experience, but it's still a damn good film.Barbara Hershey gives the performance of her life as the frightened character of Carla, who grows and evolves as the film moves forward. She is adequately supported by the rest of the cast who all play likable characters, except for the doctor; he just becomes annoying and ultimately ends up looking very stupid.Unfortunately the special effects have not withstood <more>
the test of time very well, they aren't laughably bad by any stretch of the imagination, but they really do look pretty tired now.Overall 'The Entity' is an under-rated film that is actually one of the best horror movies of the 80's. It has great tension that starts right from the word 'action', it successfully grabs your attention and doesn't let you go and it's very graphic and disturbing in the way a horror movie should be.8/10 brilliant supernatural Horror
Pretty good supernatural horror. (by HumanoidOfFlesh)
I enjoyed "The Entity" more than quite overrated "Poltergeist",which-I think-is too commercial and not enough scary.This film tells us the story about young woman Barbara Hershey who is sexually assaulted and raped by supernatural entity.The acting isn't bad-some of the performances especially Hershey as a terrified woman are rather convincing-and there's enough scares to make most of the horror fans happy.The rape scenes aren't graphic,but you feel uneasy while you are watching Hershey's suffering.Overall I'd recommend this film to everyone interested <more>
The fear of the unknown is the scariest thing that can happen. (by insomniac_rod)
"The Entity" is a horror movie that will stay in your mind forever.The movie is not an easy watch, it's rather disturbing but for some reason it catches the viewers' attention. There's something that isn't mentioned about the "entity". The paranormal phenomenon is known in the occultism field as a demon called an "Incubus". This demon rapes women and there are true Incubus cases registered. The movie doesn't digs in that aspect because there are many sub-plots. Also, the religious point of view isn't shown I think that in order to avoid a <more>
comparison with "The Exorcist" and could've worked to understand more the phenomenon. "The Entity" works perfectly as a horror movie with dramatic and sci-fi tones. The combination worked and the result is one of the most shocking horror movies of all time. Cheesy is you say but effective. Take the movie seriously and enjoy. *HUGE SPOILERS* Carla Moran is a middle class working woman with three children two young girls and a teenager son with a normal life. Everything seems to be normal in Carla's life until one night she's raped in her bedroom by an unseen evil spirit. The attacks continue and make Carla wonder if she's out of her mind.After Carla is almost killed in her car by the entity, she seeks help with Philip Sneiderman, a psychologist. The psychological exams' results indicate that Carla is a healthy, intelligent woman that may be experiencing problems caused by childhood-teenage traumas. Carla was molested by her dad as a child and later he married and got pregnant at 16. Billy her son was the result of her first marriage. Carla got married for a second after her first husband's death, but her second marriage also ended abruptly.Psychologists diagnose that Mrs. Moran's physical injuries are caused by masturbation and deliriums. The truth is that no medicine or treatment is working and the attacks continue and increase on intensity. Desperate for help, Carla and her best friend go to a library in search of books of the occultism and parapsychology. There they find two scientists from the same University as Dr. Sneidermen that agree to help her with her case. At night the entity makes an apparition and the scientists or doctors, parapsychologists, whatever take pictures of it and take them to the faculty in order to start investigations about it. What is this "entity"? Why did it pick Carla? Is it possible that Carla's traumas have something to do with the attacks? The attacks never stop and the entity seems to be challenging the rules of nature.*** The action starts pretty soon so you get really interested on what could happen next. In the first five minutes the first "entity" attack happens and that's when you know you're watching something different from the genre. That scene is filled with tension, violence, and the feeling of uncertainty that only a few movies can create. The scene where Carla is attacked and Billy her son tries to help her but is pushed violently by the entity is a truly frightening scene as the desperate cries for help from Carla look totally believable. The lightning f/x was not called for in my opinion but still added tension to the scene. The most violent scene happens when Jerry Carla's Moran enters their bedroom and witnesses how the entity is raping Carla. The scene is very explicit as it's shown how Carla's breasts are being rubbed violently and she's also beaten. The scenes are very disturbing but manage to do something that's not very common in the genre; they scare the audience. Most of the times disturbing scenes a la "Last House on the Left" provoke repulsion but in this movie they manage to create fear and a feeling of uncertainty. "The Entity" is a scary movie for it's scenes. The ending didn't work for me as the method to "stop" and paralize the entity is beyond reality. That may be the "Hollywood aspect" that was inserted by 20th Century Fox. The recreation of Carla Moran's house in the faculty lab in order to trap the entity didn't work for me.The very last scene of the movie is truly frightening. The threatening voice of the entity saying "welcome to the house, c***" sent shivers up to my funny bone. The correct way to end a scary movie is with a scary movie.ACTING Great. Simply great. A powerful, totally believable, performance by Barbara Hershey Carla Moran worths the watch. The performance is extremely difficult as Hershey had to create a mix of emotions for a situation that can't be explained! I mean, the difficulty grade on this performance is very high and she delivered greatly. The woman knows how to show pain, happiness, desperation, and fear of now knowing what's going on. A versatile and incredible performance. Ron Silver Philip Sneiderman gives a solid performance. The character is annoying but the performance is very good. David Labiosa Billy gives a good performance whenever he's on screen. Nice job in choosing the right actors. DIRECTION Sidney Furey created one of the most stunning horror movies ever. His direction is solid and managed to create very scary scenes. The direction is stylish and totally works for this horror movie. "The Entity" is something that you won't see very often; visually talking.F/X, CINEMATOGRAPHY, SCORE. -The f/x are just OK. The lightning effects look very cheap but you don't mind as the scenes where they appear are full of tension.-The cinematography is surprisingly good. There's a correct use of light, dark, and small places. Very good use of cinematography to create fear. -The score is very effective. I describe it as violent and always gives me the creeps. If the attack scenes are frightening is also because the score impresses. The drum violently beating and the electric guitar are stuff to remember.8.5/10 Scary scenes, powerful performances, chilling soundtrack, and a very interesting plot make this an unforgettable movie. One of the most frightening movies ever that if taken seriously could scare the hell out of you. Worths a watch by EVERY horror fan of the genre. This movie is an underrated basic element for the 80's horror.
