Today a watched a movie from 1980 called Without Warning.
About four friends who drive up to a secluded lake to hike and have fun, but wind up on the stalking grounds of an extraterrestrial who's come to hunt humans for sport.
It's kind of a precursor to Predator in that way, the alien is even played by Kevin Peter Hall, who would later play the Predator.
The movie features David Caruso in an early role. It also stars Jack Palance as a hunter, and Martin Landau as a crazed veteran, who proves to be nearly as big a threat to the kids as the alien. Palance and Landau would later both play escaped mental patients in the 1982 horror flick "Alone in the Dark."
The movie has good atmosphere, and Palance and Landau give good performances, but the films really drags in spots. A lot of the time you're just waiting for something to happen.
Still, I had fun watching it.
I give it a 6 out of 10.
Very flawed, but fun early eighties horror.
