Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1982. Vintage borderless reference studio still photograph from the 1982 film. "1982 20th Century-Fox" stamp on verso.
Based on the 1978 Frank De Felitta novel about a real case of an alleged haunting. In 1974, Culver City, Doris Bither claimed the ghosts of three men were raping her. De Felitta was present during the investigation with lead researcher and parapsychologist Dr. Barry Taff who served as technical advisor on "The Entity" as well as being represented in the film by the character, Gene Kraft. "The Entity" is one of the few possession films that ends with White Science and Black Magic in a draw. Critics of the time dismissed the film, but it still became something of a cult classic that evoked "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Exorcist."
Martin Scorsese considers "The Entity" as one of the greatest horror films of all time. In a Halloween themed contribution to the website "The Daily Beast" (2013), "The Entity" scored fourth place in Scorsese's list.
Shot on location in El Segundo and Santa Monica, California.
