A modern-day politician is faced with an incomprehensible in this mystical-fantasy. Senator Rast is a very powerful man. But his is nothing compared to the extraordinary power of the enigmatic stranger who mysteriously comes to "visit" him. Possessing uncanny magical prowess and miraculous psychic abilities, the peculiar, but seemingly benevolent, visitor quickly gains a spell-binding hold over the senator and his family. But a power-lusting political backer is also vying for control over the up-and-coming senator. And he would kill the influential stranger, without question, for that power. But he and the senator are about to be enlightened. Written by

The Rast family in this movie are named after the last Romanov family of the House of Romanov, the last imperial dynasty of Russia. The Rast surname is Tsar spelled backwards. Nick Rast (David Hemmings) is named after Czar Nicholas II (Nikolay II, Nikolay Alexandrovich Romanov). His wife, Sandra Rast (Carmen Duncan), is named after the spouse of Nicholas II, Alexandra Feodorovna Romanov (Alix of Hesse aka Victoria Alix Helena Louise Beatrice). Their son, Alex Rast (Mark Spain is named after their heir apparent, Alexei Nikolaevich, Tsarevich of Russia. Alas, the names Nick, Sandra and Alex substitute for Nicholas, Alexandra and Alexei respectively. See more »
A curious mix of metaphysics and political paranoia. The film's greatest virtue is its ambiguity; we keep wondering if the character Powell plays is good or evil, where he came from, what he is really after, etc. The ending can even be called "mildly surprising", regarding some of the answers it provides. There are some bad effects, some too drawn-out sequences, but overall the film is worth a look. (**1/2)
