Danny Boyle was not the first person to realise that zombies can run like the clappers. That honour belongs to Lifeforce, which is, of course, the greatest naked space vampire zombies from Halley's Comet running amok in London end-of-the-world movie ever made. Tobe Hooper may have made a lot of crap, but for this deliriously demented epic sci-fi horror he deserves a place among the immortals. Plus it offers space vampire Mathilda May, the best thing to come out of France since Simone Simon, spending the entire movie naked. Which she does very, very well. Just bear in mind that while she is the most overwhelmingly feminine presence anyone on Earth has ever encountered, she's also "totally alien to this planet and our life form and totally dangerous." It's a pitch meeting I'd have loved to have sat in on: Astronauts from the British space program find three naked humanoid alien life forms inside a giant 150-mile long artichoke/umbrella shaped spaceship hidden in the tail of Halley's Comet filled with giant desiccated bats and bring them back to Earth with near apocalyptic results as they proceed to drain the population of London of their lifeforce amid much nudity, whirlpools of thunder and spit your coffee across the room direlogue ("I've been in space for six months, and she looks perfect to me." "Assume we know nothing, which is understating the matter." "Don't worry, a naked woman is not going to get out of this complex."). Oh, and we'll get the writers of Alien and Blue Thunder to write it with uncredited rewrites by the writer of Mark of the Devil, The Sex Thief and Eskimo Nell and the director of The Jonestown Monster. Sounds like a winner, here's $22m - have fun. And they do, they do.Read more ›

"Lifeforce" boasts a rousing, thunderous score by Henry Mancini, it boasts some hilariously straight-faced acting, some very proficient visual effects and a generous helping of most agreeable soft porn. You could do much, much worse than check out this movie. Is it a bad movie? Maybe, maybe not. Depends on your poison. But it is unquestionably an enjoyable movie. One of those pesky, interfering space missions goes and brings a trio of "space vampires" back to Earth, one of them being a uniformly nude Mathilda May, who has a bit of a thing going on with one of the astronauts, Colonel Carlsen (a delightfully earnest Steve Railsbeck), in between feasting on the "lifeforce" (as opposed to the blood) of various extras and minor roles, reducing them to hideous, dessicated, shrieking, mindless husks that in turn seek out the "lifeforce" of other people. That is where the glorious destruction of London comes in, later on in the proceedings and very well handled for a film that endures a reputation for being amongst the worst ever made. There is imagery within those sequences that is up there with the blockbusters. "Lifeforce" has a perfectly creditable cast, including a pre "Spooks" Peter Firth as SAS Colonel Caine, Frank "Bouquet Of Barbed Wire" Finlay as one of the boffins and Patrick Stewart gobbing out a lot of blood from his mouth. The fact that they play this trash so seriously is one of the fun aspects. Oh, come on - it's trash. But it is glorious trash. It is proud trash. Trash is sometimes good, and here you have an example. "Lifeforce", the celluloid Big Mac - of no nutritional value whatsoever, but very, VERY enjoyable. Tuck in.

Lifeforce has always divided it's audience since it's release. Indeed anyone trying to create a film of Colin Wilson's "philosophical" novel "The Space Vampires" was going to be in for a tough time - let alone Tobe Hooper whose reputation was built on schlock horror. That said, the film certainly has its followers and if you are one of them this new blu ray will delight you. If you are not - well - however good the transfer, this rather dated tale of "sexy" "vampires" on the loose in London won't appeal!

So what I'm reviewing is the quality of the blu ray on offer, here is my take on the technical spec. of the new disc.

Arrow offers a fine AVC encoded 1080p transfer in an expansive 2.35:1. format in which Hooper oversaw both the restoration and transfer. The results far exceed the old SD version and is even an improvement on the Shout (Scream Factory) US release as it puts both versions ( ie the Theatrical and International versions) on their own separate disc and have cleaned up the prints even more thoroughly than the impressive American edition.

The colour, definition and contrast are all massively improved from the old DVD, particularly in the final part of the film which is shot in darkness. There is no evidence of digital messing around either so that clear, but unobtrusive, grain remains. Any softness - and there is some - I'm sure comes from the source material.

There is a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and a 2.0 track. The 5.1 track provides some stunning immersive effects and does full justice to both the dialogue and Henry Mancini's (very untypical) score.
