An Alien Little Girl Shoots Her Mother (The Visitor)
The 1979 sci-fi mockbuster The Visitor is pure exploitation-film gold! If you haven’t had an opportunity to watch The Visitor, Drafthouse Films will be releasing it later in 2014. I’ve never seen a movie so full of weird WTF moments in my life. The Visitor follows the battle of good vs. evil through an eight-year-old girl named Katy. She has telekinetic powers and tries to convince her mother to have a male child so she can mate with him to keep her bloodline and genes going. Meanwhile, a secret organization is trying to get Katy’s mother pregnant for their own nefarious purposes. It’s weird.
One of the key moments in the movie involves Katy’s birthday party. Although the party looks like any ordinary little girl’s get-together, Katy opens one of her gifts and finds a gun inside. She’s so happy that she shows off the handgun to the party guests. When she shows her mother, she “accidentally” shoots her in the back. Keep in mind; this is an eight-year-old little girl with a gun. Her mother survives, but she’s confined to a wheelchair for the rest of the movie. The Visitor is a bad movie, full of I-can’t-believe-a-
stunt-man-did-that type of moments and bad acting (you haven’t seen bad wheelchair acting until you watch The Visitor).
