The future is a pretty dreary place. Wars, famine, plagues, etc. Kinda makes you not want to see it. Thankfully, today’s story takes place 1,000 years after tomorrow, so unless there’s some kind of cure for everything released pretty soon or cryogenics steps up its’ game, we won’t have much to worry about. See, in this future a neutron war takes place. No, neutrons don’t fight each other, I’m guessing it’s some kind of war that has to do with neutron bombs. After the war, the world consists of vast deserts and large city-states. If you’re not in a city state, then you don’t use machinery (except weird floodlight/gun things) and you’re probably a mutant. Unless, of course, you’re a guide – which is an ancient warrior that lives only by it’s own code. If you are a guide, though, you’re hunted down to participate in the only punishment that’s still allowed in this distant future. That punishment is Deathsport!
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
Imagine being on set with your favorite movie director, and being able to document the process for posterity purposes, and just for fun! You would get to see a glimpse of movie magic and how things come together. You could see actors get into character, the film crew setting up for all the important shots, and the director freaking out because no one takes things as serious as he does. But what if things got a little too serious. What if something which should be enjoyable and rewarding turned deadly! What would you do as the documentarian… would you get involved or walk away?
With the Fall 2009 release of The Stepfather I thought it would be a good time to take a “step” back and look at the movie that started it all. My proclivity for reviewing the original films plus this movie’s strange, almost cult like status on Internal Bleeding makes it a grand candidate! Let’s expand a little on the last comment. For the last year or so we have received a lot of hits for people looking for “Terry O’Quinn nude”. Now I must say to each his/her own; but really? It just doesn’t seem like a huge topic on Google so it’s amazing we get so many hits for it. But it all relates back to when I reviewed Mischief which starred Terry O’Quinn, and also a young and smoking hot Kelly Preston. She was nude in the movie, and anyone who knows anything about search engines knows that is where we get our hits from! But we love the traffic to the site, so the more the merrier… just one question, is there a movie where Terry O’Quinn is nude?!?!
