Close Encounters of the Unkind.
Four people are about to experience contact with extraterrestrial life that is very far from friendly!
A military team traces a UFO to a small island off the coast of California… Cut off by a wall of magnetic energy, the team is forced to helplessly stand by as a lighthouse keeper and his wife become the first human beings to engage a deadly, inhospitable alien form of life. Trapped on the island as night falls, two divers on a weekend vacation search for an answer to the inexplicable events, only to ultimately come face-to-face with terrifying, unfathomable creatures of swirling light that are mankind’s implacable “Foes”.Boasting intriguing, first-rate special effects on a limited budget, and maximizing the use of its stark, remote island setting, John Coats’ 1977 science-fiction thriller depicts a close encounter of a very different kind. Never before available on video in the US, Garagehouse Pictures is proud to present FOES for the very first time in HD anywhere in the world!
