Obviously, the world’s most blatant ripoff / blend of Alien and The Thing (both the John Carpenter version and the original “space carrot” film). I’ve wanted to see this movie since I was probably 12 years old, but I can’t remember why. I think I read about it in Starlog magazine or something, or maybe I was intrigued by a Movie Guide review that (probably) warned of nudity and rated it a Turkey.
Boobs: check. Turkey-quality: check, but against all probability there’s some random talent involved. Some designers who went on to work on Aliens provide some not-entirely-awful work here — the fog and lightning are nice, there’s an almost-convincing Nostromo interior in one set, and the titular creature, though rubber-dinosaur material, could have been worse, if only slightly. Also, Klaus Kinski is in this for some reason, maybe because he got to grope Simone from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.
Make no mistake: I am not recommending that anyone watch this movie unless they have a penchant for hopelessly 80s awful sci-fi, and even those people should at least make time for Lifeforce first. But 12-year-old me is very happy that I finally got around to this piece of crap, even though he would probably have had nightmares.
