While the “Based on Actual Events” tagline in horror movies has essentially lost its impact, there are still a few supposedly fact-based flicks that really got under our skin. Most of them came from decades past, like the original Amityville Horror and The Exorcist.
Add The Entity to the list of potentially true horror flicks that truly chilled our bones. In the film, Barbra Hershey doesn’t just get tormented by a ghost, she gets sexually assaulted by the invisible intruder. The idea of a phantom violating someone in such an extreme manner shocked in 1982 when the film was released, and still raises eyebrows with many of today’s jaded genre aficionados.
Now, media connoisseurs will be able to add a stunning Collector’s Edition Blu-ray of The Entity to their libraries via Scream Factory. Look for it online and in brick and mortar retailers beginning June 11th! Here’s the scoop from this morning’s press release:

Check out the re-release’s special features below the synopsis and trailer.
Carla Moran, a hard-working single mother whose life becomes a nightmare when she is attacked in her bedroom by someone – or something – that she cannot see. Disbelieved by her friends and dismissed by skeptical psychiatrists, Carla begins to lose her grip as she is repeatedly attacked in her car, in the bath, and even in front of her children. Could this be a case of hysteria, a manifestation of childhood sexual trauma, or something even more horrific? Seeking help from a group of daring parapsychologists, Carla will attempt an unthinkable experiment: to seduce, trap and ultimately capture the depraved spectral fury that is The Entity.
