    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Lifeforce is batshit crazy, but seeing as how it's a movie about nude space vampires found sleeping in a giant needle-like spaceship at the head of Halley's Comet and the shenanigans they get up to once they arrive in London town, batshit crazy seems like the right way to go with it.

    I figure I'd familiarize myself with some more Tobe Hoper films, it's been on my never ending bucket list of sorts. hehe.

    A nice little Sci-Fi/Horror hybrid. Dealing with a British Science team travelling in outer space to find some a rare breed of vampires of sorts.
    Being brought out of suspended animation somehow, they escape and that's when the fun ensues.

    A little slow in the beginning, but picks up. The one thing that will definitely bring you in is the special effects. A good storyline helps too.

    Wow, what a difference 30 years makes.

    The first time I watched Lifeforce in a theater back in '85, I recall being distinctly underwhelmed by its over-reliance on Mathilda May's full-frontal nekkidness to paper over the half-baked plot and weak characterizations. However, upon rewatching it this evening, I was blown away at how skillfully Tobe Hooper weaves together Dan O'Bannon's cracking adaption of Colin Wilson's novel, "The Space Vampires", and John Dykstra's extraordinary practical effects into a truly entertaining mash-up…

    Apparently this has been reappraised as a cult classic, but I don't see it. While the visual effects are quite good, the performances by a mostly mediocre, mostly British cast are distinctly lacking in, well, life force. Whether different actors - Terence Stamp and Klaus Kinski were originally slated to star - could have elevated O'Bannon's leaden script (quite a step down from Alien) remains doubtful, though.

    If you mix together the films Alien, Species and Jason Goes to Hell then you would have an idea of what to expect with Lifeforce. Its cheesy fun with great creature effects and an interesting story line.

    When contacted to play one of the leads in this bravura (though all-over-the-place) sci-fi shocker, John Gielgud reportedly sniffed, “I have no interest in appearing in a film directed by the man who made The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” Hey, your loss, Johnny (this from the man who appeared in Caligula). Tobe Hooper’s $25 million special-effects orgy was trimmed by about half an hour prior to release (removing some important plot points, said Hooper; the DVD version restores fifteen minutes), but…
