I remember, my sister recorded movies for me, she had HBO, we lived in the sticks, and could not get it. Anyway she must have taped 100 movies for
me. This being one of them. I watched it, probably 5 times, back then. I may revisit the movie, now that you have mentioned it.
One of my favorite 80s horror movies was Phantasim(it came out in 1979 . It is rather cheesy now, but still worth a watch. I was going to post a
youtube trailer, but it was giving me problems. I think I did it wrong.
It remains' a classic science fiction movie and a really enjoyable one, got to admit as a teenager I thought that actress was very hot as well.
You may want to compare it to the Tommyknockers by Steven King written in 1987, you can't help but wonder if he took inspiration from this earlier
writer as his alien's though not in the tail of a comet also fed on the life force of human's to reanimate themselves and also to power there ship.
Actually while still a brilliant movie even with it's dated special effect's an up to date remake of Life Force would be very welcome but would they
do it as good or would we get something worse than the original as in the case of the new series of Battlestar Galactic vs the Old Series, the new
series had the special effects but just missed out so much of the atmosphere and mystery and discovery of the old series that led us as kid's to wait
all week for the next episode.
Just found the whole movie of the Tommyknockers on youtube, there was also a series based on it as well.
