Storyline

Sandy and Greg are two teenage kids going camping with their friends in California. Their plan is to go to the lake in town, and despite warnings from the creepy town gas station owner, Joe Taylor, the kids go camping there and end up separated from each other. Greg and Sandy team up with Taylor to save the town, but unfortunately for them, Taylor is rather eccentric and fixated on hunting down the hostile alien threatening them, and a former Vietnam war veteran, Fred Dobbs, is convinced that Sandy and Greg are the aliens.

Trivia

The alien head was created by special makeup effects artist Rick Baker. According to producer / writer Daniel Grodnik, "It cost me $19,000 to have Rick Baker - in his kitchen - make that alien head. And that was what was used on all the posters and everything else. So, it was worth it." See more »

Quotes

Scoutmaster: [taking the scouts into the wilderness] All right men, today's the day we're going to go into the wilderness. Now, all my life I've waited to take a group of men like you into the wilderness. Now these are hallowed mountains. Roamed by great Indian tribes like the Apache, Iroqui, Chippawa, and Hoppi.
Scout: [inquisitive] Did they kill Custer?
Scoutmaster: No, those were the Sioux and Cheyenne who lived on the Great Plains. The Hoppi lived in these mountains. They raised beans. They were a bean-raising tribe.

Surprisingly creepy...
9 February 2000 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

Without Warning is kinda odd, what with it's "big budget" stars and all. It's nicely done, although it looks like a Kolchak/Night Stalker episode.

However, the little frisbee/alien/thingies are extremely creepy, and strike me as very effective considering the low-budget.

The alien "hunter" looks like they got the costume from Outer Limits.

Overall, I'd recommend this movie, despite the hammy performances. Turn the lights down and prepare to be creeped out.
