Without Warning stared Jack Palance . Siskel and Ebert panned it.^^ I watched that recently. Pretty bad. It was intended as a zombie/spiritual horror film and then re-edited and plastered with last-minute FX to make it an alien/sci-fi film. I did enjoy it ironically. The kill-spree at the end is fun. If most of the film was like that and less investigative it'd be a lot more entertaining.
Last night I started watching Without Warning 1980 (also called The Warning, contrarily). Very low budget, sci-fi horror, pre-dating and often compared with Predator. I plan to finish it this evening.
Famous stuntman B movie actor and star of serial Undersea Kingdom Ray Crash Corrigan's last acting gig was in the movie It The Terror from Beyond Space 1958 This film films written by Jerome Bixby was one of the inspiration for the movie Alien . In fact the plot of Alien bears more the similarities to this film. Corrigan played the monster but, unfortunately rubber monster suit that wore was too small for him, There is are scenes in the film where the monster is seemingly sticking it's tongue out , it was in actuality Ray Corrigans chin sticking out !Interesting!
There is nothing like a classic science fiction film^^ yes, I've been meaning to watch It The Terror Beyond Space for a while for its connection to Alien (though I am generally a sucker for a good old Sci fi b movie).
