The Visitor (1979).

M-O-O-N spells “I have no idea”.

Let’s try and start to explain this for you, since this movie most certainly does not at any point.

Barbara has a daughter, whose name is Katy. Katy is genetically evil, though Barbara is not, and no, she didn’t get it from her dad because a great deal of the so-called ‘plot’ in this movie is about a secret society of old white men trying to get Lance Henriksen’s character to get Barbara to marry him so that they can make more evil children together.

Barbara somehow isn’t evil herself though. Nor does she seem to be aware that her daughter is evil, although she very clearly is.

Anyway, Katy is evil. She even plays Pong evilly. Her evility is not in question, ok? She shoots her mom, uses a stairlift in vain and drops a fire escape on a hotdog vendor. Totally evil.

So. There is an extraterrestrial collection of bald children, looked after by a man who strongly matches Western culture’s description of Jesus Christ. Jerzy also looks after them. He is an old man who wears beige who certainly takes his time to getting places. In fact, his character spends the whole movie getting to the point of his character, which is collecting Katy from Earth by means of attacking her with literally hundreds of pigeons.

There we go. Explained. Surely it makes sense now? No? Perhaps our good friends over at Rifftrax can help you then.
