Scream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has confirmed that it plans to bring to Blu-ray director Greydon Clark's sci-fi thriller Without Warning (1980), starring Jack Palance, Martin Landau, Tarah Nutter, Cameron Mitchell, David Caruso, and Ralph Meeker. The release is expected to arrive on the U.S. market in August.
Synopsis: Four teenagers going on a Lake Trip are warned of the strange happenings which occur there. But they ignore such warnings and are consequently attacked by alien creatures.
I have a bunch of grindhouse-trailer collections, and that's how I heard about this movie. Alien hunts people in the woods, and uses fleshy, living hunter-stars.
Might be fun watching Jack Palance and Martin Landau pal around.
I was beginning to think this movie would never see the digital light of day. It's rotation on MGM gave me hope. Icky, gooey, flying, blood-sucking discs? Check! Amazing veteran overacting? Check! David Caruso in short shorts? Check! Elephant screaming pre-Predator alien being? Double check! Huzzah!
This is an awesome little sci fi/horror flick. A precursor to PREDATOR, and Kevin Peter Hall also plays the alien hunter here, too. It has some great suspense and atmosphere, Jack Palance and Martina Landau are a hoot, and the first time we see the alien is one of the biggest goosebumps-inducing moments I've ever experienced in a horror film. Definitely can't wait for this one!
I've not even finished watching the German dvd. Anyway this is unexpectedly great news. Fans of Jack Palance should be happy. Despite being a low-budget film, this is a pretty creepy blend of sci-fi, horror and thriller, partly due to the music, which is only accompanied by piano and the creature's weapon - a flying disk that sucks to kill!
This is not a once-in-a-lifetime-cast. Jack Palance and Martin Landau teamed up in another thriller in 1982 "Alone in the Dark".
This is a great little film. Perfect late night horror film. I saw it on HBO in 1981 or 1982 very late on a Summer night. I always watch this one on a late Summer Night (after Midnight) just because it adds to the mood.
