Synopsis

Senator Rast is a powerful man. A stranger mysteriously comes to "visit" him. Possessing uncanny magical prowess and miraculous psychic abilities, the peculiar, but seemingly benevolent, visitor quickly gains a spell-binding hold over the senator and his family. But a power-lusting political backer is also vying for control over the up-and-coming senator. And he would kill the influential stranger, without question, for that power.

Pretty fair, a re-take on the Rasputin story. DVD director commentary is interesting. I was puzzled because I knew it was an Australian movie, an early Simon Wincer film (later did Lonesome Dove, Free Willy & others)but with an American look & feel to it and lots of American accents. The commentary explains this was deliberate, trying for a generic international appeal without looking provincially Australian. I still chuckled over the presence of Broderick Crawford as the bad guy.
