IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE, THE TERROR BEGINS.
When a space shuttle crew finds a mysterious spacecraft containing three human-looking creatures in a state of suspended animation, they bring them back to Earth for further investigation.
It's only then that scientists discover that they are in fact a race of space vampires that feed off people's life-force rather than their blood. So when they escape and run amok in London, the consequences are apocalyptic - and the shuttle crew's only survivor (Steve Railsback) seems to be the only man who can stop them.
Based on Colin Wilson s novel The Space Vampires , co-written by Dan O Bannon (Alien, Return of the Living Dead) and directed by Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist), this lively sci-fi horror romp has a stellar cast including Peter Firth, Frank Finlay and Patrick Stewart - although it's Mathilda May's appearance as a naked female alien that attracts most attention to this day.
2-Disc Blu-ray Special Edition Special Features:
Director Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce, the follow-up to his most popular hit Poltergeist, is a film that must be seen to be believed. That's not really a compliment, though, since Lifeforce isn't much of a movie when all the sound and fury is over. But you've got to admit there's something crazily admirable about a picture that starts out as a science fiction mission to Halley's comet, turns into an alien-invasion thriller featuring a beautiful naked woman (Mathilda May) who's a vampire from space and escalates into an end-of-the-world disaster flick.
Armed with a big budget and a special effects crew led by Star Wars pioneer John Dykstra, Hooper and Alien cowriter Dan O'Bannon have whipped up a concoction that's got everything anyone could ask of a horror movie--from zombies running amok in London to rotting corpses and energy bolts that signal the apocalypse to come. Keeping it all together is Steve Railsback as the Halley-mission survivor who holds the key to mankind's salvation--but what fun is saving the world when you could be seduced by a sexy naked space vampire? Check out Lifeforce to see how it all turns out. --Jeff ShannonSee all Product description

I first saw this on TV in the late 1980's, as a teenager, and loved it. Cool story and fantastic effects. I bought it on VHS and, later, DVD. Now I've got the Blu-ray. This latest version is, as one would expect, the finest quality. Excellent picture and sound.
Plot: a human space trip encounters a huge derelict alien craft, and finds 3 naked people on board (together with strange bat creatures). The naked people are brought back to Earth. There, they cause havoc - as it turns out that they're master vampires, who drain the energy (the lifeforce) out of human's. We've got to stop them before it's too late!
The basic idea behind the plot is insightful (based on a French novel). I enjoy re-watching this movie about once every 2 or 3 years, a it involves having a good laugh. The acting is over the top, and often very wooden. Some of the things that happen are down right amazing. Best bits for me: the mega-attractive naked female vampire ... the lifeforce moments ... and the death scenes.
The film is actually so bad in so many ways that it becomes great!
