Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE VISITOR is a sci-fi horror film, from the 1970s, about a disturbed young girl who becomes involved in a battle between good and evil.

Violence

In one scene, a bird pecks at a man's eye, which becomes heavily bloodied. In another scene, a man loops a garrotte around a woman's neck and attempts to throttle her to death. In a further scene, a spike emerges from a magical bird's beak and stabs a man in the neck, resulting in a brief blood spurt.

In one scene, the young girl tells a policeman to "Go f**k yourself", and wrongly accuses him of being a child molester and a 'pervert'. There are also scenes in which the young girl attacks her mother, and in which the woman is shot by a gun that the child throws onto a table. There is some mild bad language ('shit', 'bastard', 'ass', 'hell', 'butt', 'God', 'Jesus').
