Lifeforce is a 1985 science fiction horror film directed by Tobe Hooper and written by Dan O'Bannon and Don Jakoby, based on Colin Wilson's 1976 novel, The Space Vampires.

Favourite Movie Quote: "She's totally dangerous!"

Though out of whack and even daffy at times, "Lifeforce" (from 1985) was an insanely wild, over-the-top SyFy tale that owed plenty to "Dawn Of The Dead" and "The Thing".

Sure enough - "Lifeforce" starts off as an outer space saga, then becomes a crazy vampire movie, then turns into an end-of-the-world story.

"Lifeforce" is the sort of movie that's clearly ridiculous to the extreme, but, at the same time, it's so bizarre that it's actually fascinating - Yes. People disintegrate.

The city of London finds itself madly over-run by soul-sucking zombies and the one controlling it all is a gorgeous, naked, space vampiress.

With a promising screenplay written by "Alien's" Dan O'Bannon, "Lifeforce" certainly could've been a whole lot better, but, unfortunately, it suffered considerably under the inconsistent direction of "Texas Chainsaw's" Tobe Hooper.... (*Watch video movie-trailer*)

Better title: "Hot Naked Space Vampire." Moderately entertaining, if fairly cheesy, sci-horror movie from the 80s. Directed by Tobe Hooper ("Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "Poltergeist").

Despite the "downloadable video" category in search results: streaming only (not downloadable).

So it's unlikely to work unless you've highspeed broadband.
