Claro que la preciosa Mathilda May también ayuda...
Filmed at Elstree, London and with a big British pool of film making talent more accustomed to Bond films this is a cult film from the era.
Based on a seventies sci-fi novel The Space Vampires this film is based on the theme of space based 'vampires' that don't suck blood from their victims rather there life and souls 'lifeforce'.
The film begins with a US/British joint space exploration of Halleys Comet aboard a space shuttle called the Churchill.
The shuttle discovers an alien spacecraft in the tail of the comet which contains three humanoids in glass chambers.
These human like aliens somehow break free and reak havoc in London of all places!
Keeping up! Strange plot!
The film contains so many elements of other films of the period (Superman and the Krypton baddies in the phantom zone, Star Trek, Bond London scenes and effects that try to rival American Warewolf in London).
The cast is mainly little known but does include Patrick Stewart pre Star Trek with the last remnants of his hair!
Michael Gothard (The Devils, For Your Eyes Only)
The film reaches a crescendo in London with destruction scenes and puppetry effects to rival American Warewolf.
For some reason Stewart is a Doctor at a mental institution in Yorkshire (I think he is from Mirfield near Huddersfield).
For a film with such a strange plot and dodgy effects it does keep you watching.
