Seen today, it's actually an astoundingly brave, weird movie that tries more and accomplishes more than many of today's bland roller coaster rides.
Occasionally silly, but still unique and very entertaining...
How often do you find a sci-fi/horror hybrid that dares to walk the high wire? Not often enough, I think. For that reason alone, Lifeforce deserves to be rediscovered.
| Original Score: 3/4
The UK version is 15 minutes longer and makes this bizarre but lovable movie a bit more interesting.
Lifeforce is a pretty curious specimen in its own right. Its sci-fi/horror concept is epic in scale and metaphysical reach, but the casting is catchpenny...
Far from the nonsensical, failed-blockbuster of its maudit reputation, the movie is a ravishing renewal of the genre hollowed out by Star Wars
Frequently outlandish and far from profound, it's nonetheless a box-office bomb that, like its horror-maestro director, deserved quite a bit better.
| Original Score: 3/5
| Original Score: 4/5
Superior sci-fi horror.
A better than average space vampire flick.
| Original Score: 2/5
Special effects (and plot) run amok
An interesting premise quickly degenerates into a bad zombie flick that doesn't follow its own rules.
| Original Score: 1/5
Quite possibly the silliest horror movie ever made. On the other hand, you get to see Patrick Stewart kiss a man full on the mouth.
