    If not for the writing, acting, directing, cinematography, and editing, this could have been a good movie!

    A flying saucer, the size of a frizzbee lands on the top roof belonging to an inspiring model's, Margaret (Anne Carlisle) apartment. It is during the drug culture, and does not attack until Margaret makes out with other people with a drug habit.

    Very weird, very punk experimental film about aliens that feed off of orgasms. If you can get past the low budget nature of it, there's quite a bit to dissect in it. Dealing with themes of female repression and the links between sex and drugs. It's a gonzo movie you're not soon to forget.

    This was a low-budget, slow-moving art film with an annoying sound track throughout. It took a while to get to a plot. Still, I didn't want to turn it off.

    Either you like messed up movies or you don’t. This movie is super messed us but at the same time, mildly prophetic. While ostensibly about an alien that feeds off human orgasms, this movie nearly predicts EDM dance culture, mass awareness and acceptance of gender fluidity and probably some other stuff I can’t recall due to the density of the craziness (it’s also overlong at 2:15 or so). At times modern audiences may be reminded of The Room during the talking head scenes, of which there are many. One thing is true It’s just jam packed with ideas that must have seemed cutting edge in 1982. A strong Bowie influence and relentless synth / sequencer soundtrack (mostly by the director) pushes it over the top into established cult classic status. Again, not for everyone but fans of the weird will find gifts here.

    I was fortunate enough to see this film at the Waverly Theater in the Village NYC. Classic 80’s Film. Good laughs. Crazy production 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    '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.
