We're all aware that December is the time of warmth and giving and all that crap. But THIS year, we're also going to be snuggled up with our loved ones in preparation for the imminent apocalypse scheduled for December 21st.
And there's no better way to applaud the annihilation of our species than with a blazing 70MM screening of the overwhelmingly insane '80s scifi/horror space vampire epic LIFEFORCE!!! It's a galaxy-shattering cacophony of extinction, nudity, chaos, interstellar travel and blind, rabid misanthropy! Here's the deal:
Sure, Naked Space Vampire movies are a dime a dozen, but this big-budget 70mm career-wrecker from the TEXAS CHAINSAW director tears through all competition and stands tall as the ultimate example of the form.
An astronaut crew investigating Halley's Comet run across a pile of batmonster corpses and three apparent humans encased in giant glass shards. When the Crystal Nudie Trio are brought back to our planet, their diabolical nature is revealed in a world-shattering bloodsucking shitstorm. These creatures devour life straight through your face, level entire cities in seconds and spread like Country Crock.
LIFEFORCE's script possesses a manic ferocity matched only by the eye-bulging, vein-throbbing lead performance from perpetual screen maniac Steve Railsback, whose unhealthy dating relationship with Interstellar Evil Incarnate sends our feeble species down the road to absolute annihilation.
So do what you like, but skip this show and you'll be missing a telepathically possessed Patrick Stewart declare himself "the perfect woman" before kissing a fella right smack dab on the lips.
Playing at The Ritz on 12/8 n' 12/12!
