Synopsis:
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.

Best Cannon Film ever made - Lifeforce review by JA

Spoiler Alert
30/10/2017

Directed by the late Tobe Hooper this science fiction horror film may well not be perfect and it is on the ridiculous side of things but it is highly enjoyable while not being boring for one moment. This is down to a solid cast giving it their all, good special and practical effects, believable production, action scenes that are typically 80s in all the best ways with explosions aplenty, an engrossing plot and a rousing score by Henry Mancini. It also is quite unique, weird and doesn't give up on its convictions while also being a film I can't imagine being filmed to the same high level with all its unique elements being done today.
