Carla Moran awakens one night to find herself being beaten and raped by an unseen presence. Terrified of what's happening to her, and shunned by friends and family who think she's lost her mind, she seeks help from parapsychologists.

For the scenes where the entity disturbs Carla Moran by touching her, the visual effects team designed a hot air stream's system, pretending fingers that "touch" her body. See more »
When Carla is first attacked by the demon, she is slapped rather hard in the face and her lip is bloodied. But in the subsequent scenes and the days following, there is no mark on her lip. See more »
I mean I'd rather be dead than living the way I've been living. Do you understand that?

'The Entity' is a disturbing account of what are supposed to be true events, obviously they are the usual dramatisation's and alterations to the plot to heighten the viewing experience, but it's still a damn good film.
Barbara Hershey gives the performance of her life as the frightened character of Carla, who grows and evolves as the film moves forward. She is adequately supported by the rest of the cast who all play likable characters, except for the doctor; he just becomes annoying and ultimately ends up looking very stupid.
Unfortunately the special effects have not withstood the test of time very well, they aren't laughably bad by any stretch of the imagination, but they really do look pretty tired now.
Overall 'The Entity' is an under-rated film that is actually one of the best horror movies of the 80's. It has great tension that starts right from the word 'action', it successfully grabs your attention and doesn't let you go and it's very graphic and disturbing in the way a horror movie should be.
8/10 brilliant supernatural Horror
