LifeForce

Picture this… it’s 1985 and script writers need some ideas (well, when I put it that way, it’s 2011 and script writers still need some ideas!)  Halley’s Comet is coming around in a year and there’s quite a bit of mystery surrounding it.  It only shows up once every 75 years, and it’s one of the few true mysteries that are still floating around in our solar system – why not write some movies about it?  “Night of the Comet” already covered the zombies aspect so let’s write our script about space vampires (actually, it’s based off of a 1976 novel called “Space Vampires” of all things, but this is my review dammit so keep your hoity-toity literature insight to yourself)!   We don’t want to keep the title “Space Vampires” though, it might sound too cheesy.  Let’s change the title to LifeForce instead, and we’ll make the connection between vampires and Halley’s Comet down below the break.  Also, be warned that some of the images below the break may be NSFW

Evil Spawn

Growing old gracefully…  That doesn’t seem to happen any more these days.

Trailer Tuesdays: Star Crystal

In this week’s edition of Trailer Tuesdays is STAR CRYSTAL

So watching the trailer, what can we deduct about Star Crystal?

  1. It looks like it has something to do with Mars, or a red planet.
  2. Some people find an egg or a rock and take it aboard their ship.
  3. The egg hatches and turns into a slimy ET looking alien and kills them.

Made in 1986, I’m guessing that Star Crystal is one of the many Alien ripoffs, and I’m looking forward to bringing you all the review in the upcoming weeks.  Gotta love that cheesy 80’s sci-fi!

Tony misses his dad.  He left him 3 years ago during a trip out to their cottage in the country side – or at least that’s what Tony’s mom wants him to think.  Tony knows the truth though, that a bright light came and separated him from his dad and took him away.  Now, three years later, his dad Sam is back in his life out nowhere, and his mom Rachel and her boyfriend Joe have some questions.  Namely, where has he been all this time and why did he leave in the first place?
