Lifeforce (1985) ****

Railsback goes off the rails. May hypnotizes every male character (and viewer) with her clothes-defying performance. Hooper and O'Bannon chock this bonkers film to the brim with everything and the kitchen sink - space vampires, zombies, over the top performances, ridiculous dialogue, gonzo special f/x, breakneck pace, action, and a gigantic and rousing score by Henry Mancini. Even by Golan and Globus standards LIFEFORCE is nuts. The 1980s were truly a wonderful time that can only be imitated, never replicated.
