Directed by Simon Wincer
A modern-day politician is faced with an incomprehensible power in this startling, award-winning mystical-fantasy. Senator Rast (David Hemmings, Blow-Up) is a very powerful man. But his power is nothing compared to the enigmatic stranger (Robert Powell, Jesus of Nazareth) who mysteriously comes to "visit" him. Possessing uncanny magical prowess and miraculous psychic abilities, the peculiar, but seemingly benevolent visitor quickly gains a spellbinding hold over the senator and his family. When the visitor becomes aware of the loveless union between the Rast, he begins to use his powers to control the senator and win favor with his wife and son. Are these dark forces enough to bring down this powerful politician, or will the diabolical drifter meet an impending doom? Now see this acclaimed thriller from a brand new HD Master! Directed by Simon Wincer (Lonesome Dove) and co-starring Broderick Crawford (All the Kingâ€™s Men).
