“Beautifully packaged, glaringly tacky, and totally satisfying in terms of both ‘facts’ and laffs, this is exactly what I want in paranormal docu-junk.”
— Joseph A. Ziemba, BLEEDING SKULL!

Produced by legendary exploitation huckster Donn Davison (ASYLUM OF THE INSANE) with his real-life spouse Barbara, THE FORCE BEYOND is the most outrageous Cryptozoology/paranormal/UFO faux-documentaries of the 1970s. For 85 minutes, “Donn Davison, the producer of this motion picture”, ushers you through four segments detailing “Bigfoot Country,” “The Psychic Search For Atlantis,” “The Devil’s Triangle,” and “U.F.O.s Explained.” What this means is a road trip to The International UFO conference, fake interviews with fake mathematicians inside of not-really-flying airplanes, a speech by the leader of M.U.F.O.N. (The Mutual UFO Network), lots of questionable photographic evidence, and a sculpture of a supposed alien, which appears to be a giant egg clad in BATTLESTAR GALACTICA pajamas. This movie is a dream come true.
