Gentleman, disregard that last remark, this is a B Movie situation.
Sorry I just had to say that, it's a B+ or A- movie in my eyes. This movie has it all, science fiction, horror, space vampires, zombies and an alien woman who has not quite grasped the need to wear clothes.
Based on Colin Wilson's "The Space Vampires", a massive alien ship is found hidden inside the tail of Halley's comet, the surviving humanoid inhabitants are brought back to Earth and mayhem ensues.
This is a great movie, the effects are superb (bear in mind it is over 20 years old now), the scenes in London at the end are well done, but why drive through a zombie infested city with the windows open? Sure there are lots of cliches like that and plenty of macho behaviour here but on the whole it works for me. I especially love the creature's transformation at the end.
This movie has had more than its fair share of bad reviews but there are many people who appreciate it. Thanks for the re-issue as my VHS version was showing its age.
Presented in widescreen so you miss none of the action, the only negative point in my view is the lack of any extras.
Possibly the only place you will hear the words "Mission Control Great Britain" uttered.
