Incredibly over the top twist on the vampire genre about space vampires that can absorb your soul. The film starts off strong but by the third act it starts to get a little ridiculous and silly and the plot gets completely thrown out the window but still manages to be entertaining with some cool practical effects.
Yes its quite silly but that's clearly intentional. Hooper made a big budget Hammer Horror movie and you can either engage with it on that level or not.
A great piece of 80s sci-fi/horror, with wonderfully cheesy dialog, puppetry, special effects, and the extremely dishy Matilda May. Overblown music, silly gags, lots of shouting (acting!). What's interesting is that so much of this film will turn up in others over the years. For fans of the genre there is much to see and enjoy.
Slammed upon its release, this vampire/sci-fi tale has some good effects for its time. Sometimes haphazard, the story actually moves along at a fairly good pace. The book (The Space Vampires) was better in detail, but the film has Mathilda May nude and Patrick Stewart not nude, so there's that.
it has aged, but the first part is really good
Better than I thought it would be, funny in places it's not supposed to be funny, campy and corny, but with a real element of tension, and sweeping in it's scope. I suspect this movie influenced a number of other films, or maybe it was the other way around. Meh, it passed the time, and I'll turn off bad movies in a heart beat.
It's dated, long and takes itself way too seriously, but I can't deny the entertaining concept and campy fun that puts this above a lot other B movies
Strangely interesting and a bit convoluted. Something there sci-fi that could have been a lot better. Mathilda May is a beauty to behold and pre Star Trek Patrick Stewart was a hoot though.
A remake is required, and maybe a prequel or seasons. please!
