Silly, incoherent mess
23 September 2009 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

Stock footage of the Nazca lines and Tiwanaku's Gate of the Sun, tons of blurry, indistinct UFO photographs from the 1960s and '70s, and eyewitness accounts of flying saucer sightings constitute proof--according to host Donn Davison--that something is out there. The big finish: a few seconds of footage of a Soviet cosmonaut ("smuggled from behind the Iron Curtain!") which Davison attempts to pass off as film of an extraterrestrial being. "The Force Beyond" is insulting even to the indiscriminate drive-in audience for whom it was made. (If the synthetic background music sounds familiar, then you've probably seen Bob Clark's semi-legendary horror flick "Deathdream" more than once.)
