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.

Its a slightly campy 80's B horror movie.
6 February 2001 | by richbellSee all my reviews

I just got a chance to watch this 'classic' B horror movie last night. I had caught part of it years ago and had been looking for it ever since. Well I won't say that it was worth the wait but it was entertaining. The effects were ok a bit hokey and certainly not up to 2000 standards but it was 1980 and this is not a high budget movie. The movie is about this couple that is being chased around this mountain-wooded area by an Alien hunter (a pure amateur when compared to Predator) who hunts with living disks that he throws at his prey. The disks are the best and worst effect in the movie, best being that when stuck to a person or tree or vehicle they look believable, worst when flying through the air. The couple is helped by a fanatic hunter who is trying to kill the alien and dogged by this not so helpful army veteran. On the whole if you like B-horror films this one is worth seeing, if you can find a copy. But if you are looking for good acting, riveting story, and the like look someplace else. This movie is fun but needs to be taken in context.
