LIFEFORCE Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™ + DVD Combo Pack
From the director of Poltergeist and the co-writer of Alien comes a thrilling sci-fi adventure of explosive action and pulse-pounding suspense! With mind-blowing special effects by Academy Award® winner John Dykstra (1977 Best Visual Effects, Star Wars), Lifeforce is a gripping mélange of genres that’s “so bizarre, it’s fascinating” (Leonard Maltin)!

A mission to investigate Halley’s Comet discovers an even stranger phenomenon: an alien spacecraft! Following a deadly confrontation, the aliens arrive on Earth, where their seductive leader begins a terrifying campaign to drain the lifeforce of everyone she encounters. Her victims, in turn, continue the cycle, and soon the entire planet is in mortal danger. And when the mission’s sole survivor (Steve Railsback – The Stunt Man) sets out to destroy her, he comes face to face with the most charming – and horrifying – being he’s ever known. Will he be able to destroy the lovely vampiress…or will he become yet another victim of her fatal charm?

    A female vampire with lesbian tendencies ravages the young girls and townsfolk of a peaceful hamlet in eighteenth century Europe who, years earlier, killed off her fellow vampires. A rousing hunt for the vampiress ensues as a group of men follow her bloody trail of terror through the countryside. Adapted from J. Sheridan LeFanu’s novella “Carmilla,” The Vampire Lovers stars Ingrid Pitt, George Cole and Peter Cushing.

    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    • theGoldenSimatar

      Most excited about Lifeforce and so glad to see it has some special features. Hoping though that the audiosynch from the MGM Dvd is fix.

    • Terminal

      Never seen Life Force, so I will buy this.

      • LSD Zombie

        Dude, you are missing out! It should still be on Netflix if you want to check it out. Lifeforce is one of the most hilariously bizarre movies I’ve ever seen. This is one film I think Patrick Stewart would like to erase from his career! You will die of laughter when you see this one.
