YMMV: Life Force
  • Adaptation Displacement: While the movie is mostly cult, the book on which it is based is even more obscure nowadays.
  • Awesome Music: Henry Mancini (yes, THAT one) made a brief return to science fiction when he scored this one. And he nailed it.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: The reason why people call it "The naked space-vampire movie". (Oh, and Patrick Stewart is in it briefly.)
  • Evil Is Sexy: Space Girl, who doesn't even bother wearing clothes half the movie. Also exploited, as she uses her looks to seduce her victims and drain them to a husk.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: It's safe to say people don't watch this movie for its merits as highbrow cinema, but rather for the alien space breasts.
  • Shocking Swerve: The film wanted to have a Tomato in the Mirror ending by having one of the protagonists revealed as a space vampire. It would have worked, too, if this didn't contradict the rest of the movie.
  • Special Effect Failure: The zombie corpses are impressive, but they move unconvincingly.
