You know, I really want to inject my usual amount of sarcasm and humor into this, I really do, but just having finished watching this movie leaves me feeling not so witty... I will give it my best though.
The Entity tell the story of a single mother of three, who has had a pretty rough life; she was possibly molested by her father; she was married and knocked up at 16 to an alcoholic punk (who died pretty much right after they got married); she was abandoned by the dad of her other two kids... on top of all of that, she now finds herself being abused and raped by a vengeful spirit. Repeatedly. To say she's had a rough life is putting it mildly.
Luckily for her, she goes to see a Doctor who really wants to help her, and maybe get in her pants, but he thinks she is insane. Still, he offers her his "Help."

I wont ruin the ending other than to say the last scene is seriously fucking scary.
The Entity is based on a true story; whether you choose to believe that it was "real" or not, this movie is a serious creep-fest. Is there a more disturbing premise for a movie other than "Angry spirit violently rapes woman?" Perhaps the premise of Inside, but I don't know. This is some harsh stuff.
This is one of the creepiest movies I've ever seen; and that's saying an awful lot. From the beginning, everything about this movie is scary. The music, the lighting, even some of the dialogue is just damn creepy. I actually got goosebumps when I watched this, and I've seen it before... I knew what was coming. I swear that the music in this movie may be some of the creepiest ever.
Ron Silver is a hell of an actor. I've always loved his work, and I wonder why he was never a "bigger" star instead of just the prototypical 80's character actor. Barbara Hershey is pretty damn good too. And hot. We must never forget that she's hot.
Moe Greene, you are not a man sir! Pussy.
No gore. This is a psychological horror movie, not so much visceral. There are 6 rape scenes though, that while being bloodless, are quite disturbing.
|There's also lightning. Lots and lots of lightning.|
"Welcome home C**t." A seriously creepy line, from a seriously creepy scene. And yes, it's a harsh word at the end of the sentence, so I didn't type it outright. I have hardly any class, but I do have some.
|Here's a hint: C U Next Tuesday.|
I have no choice but to give The Entity an A; This is one of the most effective ghost stories I've ever seen, and it still creeps me out to this day.
Any woman that Sayid Jarrah (from the ever-awesome, Lost) loves, is aces in my book.
