Excerpt: What started off well enough (in space) very quickly imploded into awful British sci-fi. It's the middle of the end of the world and the Prime Minister's secretary asks the two main characters if they would like a cup of tea. Seriously??
Another science fiction that stood the test of time

Excerpt: This flick was released back in the mid 80s (1985 I believe). This was the period when film makers were trying to out do each other on the special effects. Lots of technical advancements had been achieved since the release of Star Wars in 1977.
Great Tobe Hooper film. Looks better than MGM DVD but still uneven PQ.

Excerpt: I love Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce. Always have. Unfortunately, the 1998 MGM DVD was a noisy, blurry mess and did not do the film justice. This new Shout Factory version is an improvement, but not up to Blu Ray standards. Of course it is better than the 1998 MGM version, but not by much.
Excerpt: Well what can I say, when it comes to cult classics, this has to be at the top of most peoples list. Vampires, zombies, people disintegrating, Railsback kissing Stewart lol, sci-fi, horror, action, good fx, and the incredible body of Mathilda May in 1080p. Seriously what more can you ask for?
Excerpt: Movie - The US cut is the better film. It contains all the same information as the international cut, but maintains a better tempo due to tighter editing, and has an overall better musical arrangement. The IC has an unnecessarily drawn out beginning that slows the film.
Excerpt: Watched this new blu-ray last night. Scream/Shout Factory did a great job with the release. The colors look great and the picture is nice and sharp. Some of the darker scenes have a lot of noise/grain, but it's not to distracting.
Summary: OK let us get one thing out of the way first.... this film is not for everyone. Many would even consider it utter garbage. For those of you unaware of the Cannon Group's film's these guys are basically the kings of B-Movie trashy film (I mean the plot of this one is about Space Vampires that turn...

Summary: Lifeforce is amongst my very favorite 1980´s SciFi flics!What an bold endeavor that movie was in 1985 one could only imagine.
The infamous producer duo Menachem Golan and Yoram Globus, well known for b-action movies such as Missing In Action or the Death Wish -sequels were very ambitiously aiming...
Summary: This is a very strange film - for it's time it had a huge budget for special effects, using some of the people from the Star Wars films. The story however is pure b-movie but it is entertaining.
