Close encounters of the unkind are coming to Blu-ray as the long-unseen 1977 sci-fi thriller FOES is flying to Blu-ray courtesy of Garagehouse Pictures. Read on for the details, cover art and trailer.

The FOES Blu-ray will arrive on Earth June 24. Written and directed by John Coats, it stars Macdonald Carey, Jerry Hardin (who would later be part of more extraterrestrial shenanigans as THE X FILES’ Deep Throat), Jane Wiley, Alan Blanchard, Gregory Clemens and Coats. The synopsis: “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.’ ”
