Seminal science fiction adventure
Boobs, space vampires, and Patrick Stewart.
An astronaut (Steve Railsback) struggles with love withdrawals after a space vampire makes him its bitch. And now it wants to take over the Earth, too. Dan O'Bannon and Don Jakoby, the writers, keep things interesting even if characters and situations do not perform as they should all the time. A big suspension of disbelief is required here, but nonetheless a decent sci-fi outing.
A classic of mind-F**K sci-fi horror. Ignore the mid 80s SFX and dig the original ideas.
I loved this film, it's very smart.. Don't listen to the negative comments!
I love this movie and have watched to man times.
A deeply silly film which despite it's many unintentional comedic moments, has not improved with age.
One of my favorite movies. Saw it at the cinema 4 times back in 1985 when I was 10 years old. Space shuttles, skeletons, amazing visual effects. What more could a boy ask for.
Plain awesome, yet criminally underrated, epic hybrid of sci-fi, fantasy, horror and disaster. Uneven (and sometimes unintentionally humorous) at times, but the audacity of the concept and production (a revisionist vampire story told with the elements of Hammer, Quatermass, George A. Romero, sexploitation grindhouse flick, and Irwin Allen incorporated for more than just good measure), along with the integrity of the sadly late Tobe Hooper as director, complete with the assured cinematography of Alan Hume, still-impressive practical effects work of John Dykstra and memorable music of Henry Mancini, makes this colorful, intense and action-packed gem of a space-horror cult flick a serious case of worthwhile repeated viewing.
The promise of 1980s, practical effects, and energy vampires with no clothes on is apparently all it takes to get me to watch a movie.
