    Tobe Hooper is one of the great hit and miss directors of all time. For every Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist and Funhouse, there's a Toolbox Murders, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 or a Crocodile. Thankfully Lifeforce is on the good side, actually the very good side. The first thing I noticed with the film is how full of effects it is. There are countless dried up bodies that must have taken some work making. The one that comes alive as it's…

    I was extremely bored. The nudity couldn't save it for me.

    What it lacks in character depth it makes up for in immense mad fun. It’s a vampire film, an alien film, and a zombie film, with everything ratcheted up to eleventy-stupid, and actually a lot more clever than that makes it sound.

    A load of fast-paced and excitingly shot action sequences, a very creepy atmosphere, and an intelligently plotted mystery – it works because its original take on the vampire mythos seems very new and unusual, so it’s very unpredictable,…

    I certainly appreciated the effort that went into creating a b-grade horror with a deep mythology, but when it comes to a concept like naked space vampires creating zombies in London sometimes that is all you want. Lifeforce is overlong and overcomplicated to the point where it becomes boring and that is a very sad thing for a film I had high hopes for. The film isn't without some great touches - the score is epic, the effects hold up…

    One scene in this movie pretty much sums this up. The protagonist has been revealed as the last survivor of an attack by space vampires. He now appears to have some psychic connection with the main vampire, who seems to be roaming the countryside in the form of a naked woman, but also appears to be hypnotically as well as sexually attracted to the vampire (as appear to be most men, and some women, who come into contact with her).…

    "Two words: LIFEFORCE remake." --Paz de la Huerta's agent.

    You can almost envision the pitch meeting: the faces of Hooper, Golan and Globus are all covered in cocaine.

    Features Patrick Stewart in a wheelchair a full 15 years before X-Men. Tobe Hooper is a clairvoyant as well as a weirdo.

    Completely worth watching just to see Patrick Stewart get mind fucked. Funniest thing ever.
    And the naked vampire alien girl.

    One of director Tobe Hooper's less popular films from 1985, but one of my favorites from his filmography. The opening pulls you in the same way Alien did, the sets are great, the alien spacecraft is eerie & the bodies hanging from the ceiling is a wonderful touch. Once the space vampires are brought to earth, the mayhem begins. There's also full on nudity & quite frequently from the insanely hot Matilda May. The life sucking sequences are a sight to behold.…

    Been meaning to watch this for ages, came up on Netflix roulette. Forgot Tobe Hoopr directed it and Dan O' Bannon wrote it. It's pretty fucking off the wall, the space vampire mythology stuff is more confusing than Prometheus but there are some great special effects. Never really gets boring, Dan O'Bannon knew how to keep shit moving. Appreciated London going all apocalyptic at the end.
