The Entity ★★ 1983 (R)

Supposedly based on a true story about an unseen entity that repeatedly rapes a woman. Hershey's the victim whom nobody believes. She eventually ends up at a university for talks with parapsychologist Silver. Pseudo-science to the rescue as the oversexed creature is frozen dead in its tracks. Exploitative violence, gore, and nudity aplenty, balanced to a degree by Hershey's strong performance. 115m/C VHS, DVD . Barbara Hershey, Ron Silver, Alex Rocco; D: Sidney J. Furie; W: Frank De Felitta; C: Stephen Burum; M: Charles Bernstein.
