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. This movie has it all, good story, good special effects and a good ending. While the DVD was pretty good quality, blu ray had been release and the quality improved 10 times.
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. Details in clothing and hair are blurry and soft, and the film lacks detail in many scenes.
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? The movie is a wild entertaining ride, with a little hokeyness thrown in. Saw this in the theaters when I was a teen, so I was glad to see it finally land on Blu-ray.
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. In addition, a few scenes in the IC get extended into more talky moments that really don't expand upon the film's concepts much or add anything important to the overall experience of the movie.
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. The 5.1 track is pretty awesome, the bass in my sub woofer was pounding. Lots of cool extras on the disc. The FX in the film still look great and are 10x better then the CGI crap of today's films.
Summary: Rymdens Vampyrer som den hette när det begav sej på Svenska Biografer 1985.Här märktes det att Tobe Hooper var mycket inspirerad av klassikern Alien som också utspelar sej i Rymden.Medans varelsen i Alien blir kvar på skeppet,tar Hooper ner sina tre Vampyrer till Jorden,där kaos utbryter.En av Vampyrerna spelas av Sexbomben Mathilda May,underbar Kvinna att se på.Filmen är lite småseg här och där,men har bra effekter och trevlig stämmning.Rymdens Vampyrer är klart mer...
