The Visitor

Post by Rob@Sky » Sun Aug 24, 2014 1:25 pm

Trust we all enjoyed this one. A glorious mishmash of everything popular at the time: demonic kids, sci-fi, cop shows, wealthy cast soap operas and Eastern mysticism.

Mad and scattershot, but visually accomplished, despite or because of hilarious prop effects.

Sam Peckinpah's scene was dubbed. Anyone know why?

Sometimes these retro-films are the real treats.

They only had Peckinpah for one day, so he didn't dub his own performance. Apparently he wasn't that well and couldn't remember his lines. All Italian films at the time were shot without any sound recording and they would then be post-synchronised. It was quite common that the original actors weren't available at the time of post-production, so another actor dubbed their voice for them.

Thanks Lost Highway, interesting. Knew SP was into his decline by then. Would have been interesting to hear what he dialogue he was saying.

Jodorowsky does Dallas indeed!
