The Entity (Furie, 1981)

"A story so shocking, so threatening, it will frighten you beyond all imagination."

The Entity certainly lends credence to the notion that the unseen is far scarier than the seen. Though Sidney J. Furie's direction is by and large pedestrian, the film is overlong, and the rambling narrative takes some unfortunate turns, Barbara Hershey's brave performance and a truly scary central premise make up for much of the film's faults.
