Latest: Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce set for UK re-release Simon Fitzjohn August 30, 2013 Latest News and Videos 1679 Iconic director Tobe Hooper’s cult classic horror/sci-fi mash-up Lifeforce gets the chance to impress a whole new audience in September, when the 1986 flick gets the re-release treatment on Blu-Ray. Chock full of special features, and showcasing a new transfer overseen by Hooper himself, this looks like an essential purchase for anyone who needs a bit of space vampire (of the lifeforce sucking variety) in their lives. In case you are unaware of the plot, Lifeforce follows a shuttle crew that stumble across a mysterious spacecraft containing three human-like creatures in suspended animation. Naturally they decide to bring them back to earth, triggering waves of carnage – in London. Among the special features are two different versions of the film, a host of audio commentaries, a making of documentary, an interview with Hooper and much more, along with a collector’s booklet, all wrapped up in a limited edition steelbook. Starring the likes of Frank Finlay and Patrick Stewart, Lifeforce hits stores on September 30.
