Carla Moran awakens one night to find herself being beaten and raped by an unseen presence. Terrified of what's happening to her, and shunned by friends and family who think she's lost her mind, she seeks help from parapsychologists. The researchers soon discover that evil spiritual force has been drawn to Carla and is responsible for the violent attacks. The question now, however, is how do they stop it? Based on a supposedly true story.

- Cindy: Beautiful day outside, isn't it? Nothing like good old southern California for lots of sunshine! Carla Moran: I was raped.
Carla Moran: Your Heylu is burning.
The Entity: Welcome home, cunt.
Carla Moran: I mean I'd rather be dead than living the way I've been living. Do you understand that? Phil Sneiderman: Yes, I can understand that. Yes. I also understand that I care very much what happens to you. Very much. And I know that in your heart you know the difference between reality and fantasy. Carla, look at me, Carla - our reason, our intelligence:That's the only thing that distinguishes us between any other species of animal, Carla - I care about you! Carla, don't close yourself off now. It's real important, real important that you maintain contact with at least one person that really cares about you. Carla Moran: I don't know what you're saying. Phil Sneiderman: I'll tell you what I am saying! That you and I can make that contact. Carla Moran: [softly] I don't want to make that contact.
Carla Moran: All right. All right, bastard. I've finished running. So do what you want. Take your time - buddy. Take your time. Really, I'm thankful for the, uh... rest. I'm so... tired of being scared. So it's all right, it really is, it's all right. You can, uh, do anything you want to me, you can, uh, torture me, kill me, anything. But you can't have me. You cannot touch me. [pause] Carla Moran: That's mine.
- The real-life Carla Moran's teenage son described a particularly vicious attack in which Carla was thrown by the malevolent force and hit her head. He tried to intervene, but he was also thrown, breaking his arm. In the filming of the movie, the actor playing the son broke his arm in that scene, and the curtains tore from top to bottom without explanation.
Robert MacNaughton auditioned for a role for this film, after being asked because the casting director saw him in an off-Broadway play, in New York.
For the scenes where the entity disturbs Carla Moran by touching her, the visual effects team designed a hot air stream's system, pretending fingers that "touch" her body.
