Remember that one time when Barbara Hershey played the lead role in a 1980s horror film your parents made you promise you would now watch? Well I did, and I was surprisingly unsettled by the exploitative and supposedly fact-based thriller which tells the story of a woman who thinks she is losing her mind when she is raped several times by an unseen supernatural entity. Interested yet!
As far as vintage horror movies are concerned, “The Entity” is one of those cult classics that round up your collection. Horror genius James Wan is set to serve as a producer along with Roy Lee (“The Ring”, “The Grudge”, “Poltergeist“) to bring to life a brand new version of the supernatural horror film. Reports also confirm that duo Chad and Carey Hayes are on board to write the screenplay. This is very exciting news considering Wan’s recent horror movie box office success. His reunion with the Hayes brothers is short on the heels of their wildly popular scary movie “The Conjuring“. The helmer will next direct “The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist” and is rumored to direct “Aquaman” for Warner Bros.
1983’s “The Entity” Synopsis:
“Single mother Carla Moran (Barbara Hershey) is raped and attacked by an invisible force. She begins therapy with Dr. Phil Sneiderman (Ron Silver), a psychiatrist who believes Carla’s traumatic past is motivating her to commit self-induced injuries, rather than anything supernatural. When the attacks continue, Carla invites two college students with an interest in the paranormal to visit her house. After seeing the ghost in action, they agree to help Carla defeat her invisible attacker.”
