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 dude right smack dab on the lips. (Zack)
