'Liquid Sky' could easily have been filmed in Sydney in the early 80's. Same nihilistic trash talking new wave punk and drug scene. What I found prophetic was idea of sex kills - LQ was made just before the mid- 80's AIDS epidemic sent chills through suburban Australia..

Arguably the most invasive soundtrack ever put to a film. Intriguing that a movie so defined by its music didn't have anything nearly as good to offer as the God Module track it inspired 20 years later, "Transcend".

Though the core concept is fascinating and the aesthetics are brilliant, in all honesty, Liquid Sky can be quite difficult to watch.

An astonishingly ridiculous, campy, gloriously inventive and goofy piece of work. It gets my highest rating sort of by default.

Perfect midnight movie! Horrible acting, crazy story, totally bizarre. Love it!

A forgotten cult gem. You would never watch a movie like this for the plot. The plot is horrible. The story makes no sense and is more like random things happening just for the sake of random. The acting varies, with the lead being great, but others (like the German scientist) being horrific like he was picked up off the street. None of that matters though, as this movie is all about the costumes and eccentricity of the film. It's like being at a nightclub on drugs, where it may or not be a good time, but it's definitely a trip.

My only big criticism is more with the soundtrack. It's too jarring and a true punk score or hard rock music would have lifted this movie to cult classic status. It's kind of like Necromantik (both as a movie and with the music). Like Necromantik, you can't really tell if it's art or just trash. Either way, it's definitely an interesting watch.

Ultra baaaaad, worth retching, tasteless sci-fi flick.

A cult classic if there ever was one - fer sure. Looking a bit hip- retro-rusty around the edges these days and a film Andy Warhol wish he'd made, L.S. still packs a nasty lil' punch none-the-less. Well worth a look for lead actress, Anne Carlisle's, bizarre performance alone. An 80's hipster dark punk flick that is thankfully bereft of 80's music.

Grande parte do valor de "Liquid Sky" reside na forma genuinamente punk como decide montar a sua história de dois extraterrestres à procura de heroína em Nova Iorque e de informação sobre como o cérebro reage aos opiáceos. Os meios de produção são claramente limitados (a mesma sequência psicadélica é repetida vezes sem conta), mas é precisamente isso que estimula a estética punk de um filme de costas voltadas para toda a sociedade existente à superfície de um submundo de junkies e new wavers alienados. Nessa divisão entre excluídos e conformados (considerados só mesmo na altura de serem insultados), que encara as duas partes quase como espécies diferentes, "Liquid Sky" abre as portas para toda a fracturação social tratada de modo absurdo por "Repo Man" apenas alguns anos mais tarde. De resto, as duas horas de "Liquid Sky" são bem mais suportáveis do que parecem de início e alguns das suas situações são tão insólitas e hilariantes quanto o GG Allin a defecar em palco. É pois um documento punk de valor imenso e superior ao semelhante antecessor britânico "Jubilee" (que, para seu mal, leva-se muito mais a sério).

Not what I expected. Needed more excitement. I was falling asleep. Effects were the best and the song made me laugh.

Part glam rock, part drug trip, part b action girl revenge movie.

This sounds absolutely delirious. Looks like the bastard child of Warhol, Rocky Horror, and Final Fantasy VII (or Final Fantasy 6.3).

There's some great scenes in this.i miss the early 80s. By '85
it seemed like everyone's soul was either withdrawn in recovery,sold out to
mundanity,or departed from earth completely

Sometimes disturbing - but visually arresting - this is a must-see for cult film enthusiasts, and die-hard 80s fashionistas.

This is a damm weird movie, even today`s standards it`s out there..... special effects are very low budget but the totally out there story line keeps it going.

WOW--see what drugs do to people!!

A film that definitely charts its own course. Alien craft lands on top of an apartment complex to channel the heroin intake and sexual habits of one of its inhabitants. Original, to say the least, but not for everyone; resigned for cult status.
