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.

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, Iroquis, Chippawa, and Hopi.
Scout: [inquisitive] Did they kill Custer?
Scoutmaster: No, those were the Sioux and Cheyenne who lived on the Great Plains. The Hopi lived in these mountains. They raised beans. They were a bean-raising tribe.

The Original "Predator"!!! Jack Palance, Actor.
16 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

Without Warning (1980) was an interesting movie. The plot was lifted and remade into a lame movie called Predator. This low budget horror film starred a trio of hard living actors (Jack Palance, Neville Brand and Martin Landau). Times must have been hard on these great character actors, sadly Neville Brand never received the recognition that he deserved as an actor. But LAndau and Palance went on to greater fame years later (the two even co-star in the highly underrated horror film ALONE IN THE DARK).

The movie is about a giant alien who likes to stalk humans. One of his weapons is a bevy of flying blood sucking star fish. After stalking a bunch of daft co-eds (led by David Caruso). A haggard and sun baked hunter (Jack Palance) decides to have some fun and hunt the ultimate prey! What will happen when the Alien tangles with a middle aged dude who doesn't care about anyone or anything? You have to watch WITHOUT WARNING.

Not a great film or a classic by any means. It's a fun party movie that gets better when you watch it with more people. Too bad it's hard to find.
