This made for tv movie which was made in 1979 and aired in 1982 is a cross between what happens to you when abducted by aliens and a cult. John Forsythe (fresh from his "voice only" days on Charlie's Angels and at the time appearing as the head of Dynasty, ABC's competitor to CBS' Dallas) and Priscilla Pointer star as 2 alleged aliens known only as "He" and "She". They have been going around the US, attracting people to join their cause and travel with them back to their home planet. The one catch, no children allowed. They have their big get together in Santa Fe where a newspaper reporter named Ted Randall (Vic Tayback of the popular sitcom Alice and the big screen movie it was based on) has been following them from city to city to eventually lead the cops to arresting them as con artists. Also there is Tim Armstrong, (James Stephens remembered primarily as Law Student James Hart on The Paper Chase) as another skeptic, a street musician who is trying to find out what his girlfriend (and the others for that matter) sees in them. Eventually, He and She take a bunch of the people into their tent including Tim and Randall, and put all the non believers to sleep. When they (the non believers) awaken the next morning, they find all the believers mysteriously vanished. We then find our "converts" traveling in a school bus through the desert supposedly on their way to meet the space ship. When the bus breaks down, a married woman in the group goes into labor. He and She learn of this, and they take her aside, then slowly invite her and some of the others into a mysterious machine at their base (an abandoned airfield). When they come out of the machine, they are totally brainwashed of what the world thinks, only the will of He and She remains with them.Read more ›

I saw this movie on t.v. in the middle of the day while home sick from school about 20 years ago. It's the ultimate b-movie/cult film--I can't even believe it's on DVD! My dad watched it with me those years ago, and since then, whenever the subject of brainwashing, or cults, or any similar subject comes up in our conversation, we always repeat a line from this movie, during a scene when the brainwashees excitedly ask the mandollin playing guy: "Play for us Tim!" The line/scene is classic, disturbing and humorous--all at the same time! I didn't even remember the title of this movie until I decided to do some research on the internet. The only clue I had going for me was that I remembered that "She" was played by the same actress who played Barry Allen's mom on "The Flash" t.v. show from the early 90's. If you enjoy obscure, b-movie sci-fi, the "Mysterious Two" is for you!

Format: VHS Tape
Here's a good example of the strange, almost experimental B-movie that used to be made for TV. Clearly inspired by the early reports of Bo & Peep, who went on to create the bizarre Heaven's Gate cult, it's also a commentary on the overall cult phenomenon that was sweeping America in the 1970s. People with empty or meaningless lives, looking for answers & some system of belief that defined the world & their place in it, always in stark, simplistic, unambiguous terms -- such were the people who found their way into cults. And don't they sound an awful lot like the fundamentalists & New Agers who followed in their wake, right up to the present day?

Whether this was intended as a pilot for a series, or whether it's taken as a standalone story, it ends quite properly on an ambiguous, even confused note, with no black & white solution. That sort of thing isn't as popular today, when clearcut answers are demanded by audiences that can't cope with nuance & uncertainty ... ironically, the same sort of attitude which leads people into cults in the first place!

The production values are limited, of course, but the actors do a fine job. James Stephens is quite good as the increasingly freaked-out young man who can't get through to his blissed-out (or brainwashed) companions. It's easy to empathize with his frustration & anguish, especially as he sees the woman he loves slipping away from him. Isn't this how any of us would feel in a similar situation?

While far from being even a minor masterpiece, this is still a chilling & effectively creepy piece of work. View it as an example of filmmaking from an earlier time, when both creators & audiences were open to more imaginative possibilities ... but also view it as a look at the psychology of the easily led, the all too willing followers of the most absurd & soul-destroying beliefs, because we live with such people today. Recommended!

I saw this on TV as a teen and never forgot it. Was tickled to see it had come to DVD. A real blast from the past--sci fi mixed with romance, a really interesting movie. Mysterious, creepy and a little sad too. Would definitely recommend it.
