Entity, The (1981, USA) C-125m. SCOPE ** D: Sidney J. Furie. Starring Barbara Hershey, Ron Silver, David Labiosa, George Coe, Margaret Blye, Alex Rocco. Hershey plays a mother of three, who one day starts suffering vicious attacks by an invisible sexual force. Is it a demon? Or is she going insane? Psychologist Silver tries to help her with Freud - to no avail. Rather outlandish, silly premise somehow remains watchable thanks to straight-faced performances, a professional score by Charles Bernstein. Written by Frank De Feliita, based on his novel (allegedly based on fact!). Released abroad before getting an early 1983 U.S. release.
