The Entity 1982
The year 1982 is widely regarded as a benchmark for sci-fi and fantasy films, with The Thing, E.T., Blade Runner and Poltergeist being some of the classics being released. While not quite in the same league as these films, The Entity is another of that year’s films that reflects well on the genre. Adapted by screenwriter Frank De Felitta from his own novel, based on a supposed true story of a Californian mother who endured repeated sexual abuse at the hands of a ghost, Barbara Hershey plays Carla Moran.

One night while in her bedroom, Carla is attacked by an unseen presence which pins her to her bed and rapes her. After the ordeal is over, neither herself nor her teenage son, Billy (David Labiosa), can find any trace of an intruder. Later that night, objects begin to fly around her room of their own accord and Carla flees the house with her three children. The next day events take a more sinister turn, as the entity takes control of Carla’s car and attempts to run her off the road. At the end of her tether, Carla seeks help from psychiatrist, Dr Scheiderman (Ron Silver), however he is sceptical thinking it could be a case of hysteria or a manifestation of childhood sexual trauma...
