THE ENTITY (1982) ** ½

Barbara (Beaches) Hershey stars as a single mother who is repeatedly raped by an unseen force or “Entity”, which also has the power to electrocute her son. A psychiatrist (Ron Silver) tries to help her, but when the attacks persist, she gets a team of parapsychologists to freeze the spirit. Hershey is good, the effects (by Stan Winston) are excellent, and the rape scenes are shocking (you never “see” the Entity, but you can see invisible hands squeezing her breasts), but the movie bogs down near the end and the freezing chamber finale is kinda hokey. Co-starring Alex (Stanley) Rocco as the unsympathetic boyfriend. From the director of Superman 4: The Quest for Peace, Sidney J. Furie. Based on a “true story”!!!
