Brian De Palma says on a interview given for the DVD extras of Casualties of War (1989) that the idea from this movie came from the same story that Casualties of War (1989) is based on. The story was published in "The New Yorker" Magazine in 1969, and later became a book. Allegedly Elia Kazan also read the story on The New Yorker and had the idea of a fictional script that showed the after wards of the true history showed in Casualties of War (1989), in which the character played by Sean Penngoes to jail after has been convicted by a martial court of war crimes (he and three outer guys kidnapped, raped and them murdered a Vietnamese girl in the Vietnam war). In the movie, Sean Penn's character, in his trial, promises revenge to Michael J. Foxcharacter, who was the one that reported him. See more »
Slow and creepy, The Visitors is a very low budget story about two Army buddies, newly released from the stockade after serving their terms for rape, who drop in on the comrade responsible for their conviction. Very slow, but rewarding, and definitely worth a look as an unsung classic of 70s cinema.
