The Visitor - Catch It Soon At A Drafthouse Near You

I mentioned before that Drafthouse is set to give the 1979 Giulio Paradisi film The Visitor a limited theatrical run, and they've just posted the locations and dates of the screenings, which you can find here

On that same page be sure to look on the right side of the page, there's a link for a free download with a few sample tracks from Franco Micalizzi's score - including my favorite track from the film, the ridiculously titled Sadness Theme. 

You can also snag yourself one of the newly designed 27x40 posters for just $8. Although for anyone interested in the poster who also plans to buy the Blu-ray when it comes out Drafthouse usually offers bundle packages that include a Blu-ray, Download and Poster, so you may want to wait a bit and see if they do the same for The Visitor.

Before I end this post I have to say that I think Drafthouse is hyping this one up just a bit too much. The Visitor is an entertaining film, but statements like "The Sci-Fi/Horror Epic That 1979 Couldn't Handle" make it seem like some kind of lost avant garde masterpiece when in reality it's kind of a goofy incoherent mess, albeit a very fun and highly watchable goofy incoherent mess. Definitely check it out if it plays near you, just don't expect it to absolutely blow you away.

I love the soundtrack too! This is not my rip but you can find a very good FLAC copy of the 2011 Universal Music Soundtrack issue here:

or if you prefer a 320 MP3 rip:

I am a huge fan of mid-late 70s and early 80s Italian soundtracks as they incorporate disco/funk/electronic/prog sounds into one delicious whole - they still sound better than 99% of the music released today in my old man opinion!

Great to see you are still running Manchester Morgue, I always drop in every few months and I would be gutted to see it disappear the way many of my favourite soundtrack blogs have already gone.

Paige Connor was such a gorgeous little darlin` back in `79, i always enjoyed her legendary confrontation with Glenn Ford, that scene was the definition of 'sexual tention' ! ! !.
