Cinemaniacs’ screening of THE ENTITY will feature a discussion with film academic and writer Alexandra Heller-Nicholas regarding the film. As well as pre-recorded introduction videos with composer Charles Bernstein talking about the terrifying score and actor Robert MacNaughton discussing a personal story regarding the film.
About the film:
Academy Award nominee Barbara Hershey stars as Carla Moran, a hard-working single mother who, one terrible night is raped in her bedroom by someone or something that she cannot see. Met with sceptical psychiatrists, she is repeatedly attacked in her car, in the bath, and in front of her children. Could this be a case of hysteria, a manifestation of childhood sexual trauma, or something even more horrific? Now, with a group of daring parapsychologists, Carla will attempt an unthinkable experiment: to seduce, trap and ultimately capture the depraved spectral fury that is THE ENTITY.
