From Greydon Clark, the legendary cult director of Satan’s Cheerleaders, Angels Brigade, The Return, Wacko, Joysticks, Final Justice and Uninvited, comes the ultimate in extraterrestrial terror—Without Warning. It’s an alien. It preys on human fear. It feeds on human flesh. It comes with flying, bloodsucking jellyfish. And it’s here! A group of teenagers, a grizzled hunter and a crazy war veteran wage a life-and-death battle against the insidious invader. Be warned, there can be only one survivor. The alien—or Earth. Humanity depends on Jack Palance (Sudden Fear), Martin Landau (The Being), Tarah Nutter (Chilly Scenes of Winter), Christopher S. Nelson (Roller Boogie), Cameron Mitchell (Silent Scream), Neville Brand (Eaten Alive), Sue Ane Langdon (The Evictors), Ralph Meeker (Kiss Me Deadly), Larry Storch (Sweet Sixteen), Lynn Theel (Humanoids from the Deep), Darby Hinton (Hi-Riders) and David Caruso (King of New York) to defeat the evil E.T. (Kevin Peter Hall, the predator in Predator).
