"Nobody can escape..."

Bloodsuckers from Outer Space is a 1984 Horror comedy film.

An alien force arrives on Earth and makes farmers into vampires.

This film contains examples of:

  • Antagonist Title: The protagonist is Jeff.
  • Arch-Enemy: The Lifeforce is this to Jeff, since it makes almost everybody he cares about into a bloodsucker.
  • Big Bad: The Lifeforce controlling the bloodsuckers.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Jeff and Julie escape the bloodsuckers alive and presumably live Happily Ever After. However, a Methodist camp is nuked by mistake, and the bloodsuckers are still around.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Joe is convinced that the Communists use pornographic satellite TV to control minds, and Catholics use Spanish-language satellite TV for the same.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: The Lifeforce just kinda shows up one day and starts turning people into vampires. It doesn't even get a corporeal form, much less a personality.
  • Gory Deadly Overkill Title of Fatal Death: Parodied
  • Hillbilly Horrors: Vampires in a small Texas town.
  • Kryptonite Factor: The Lifeforce is neutralized by nitrous oxide.
  • Not Using the "Z" Word: Vampiric variant. The vampires are consistently called "bloodsuckers."
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Bloodsuckers are aliens who possess humans and get a craving for blood. They do not transfer vampirism with a bite. Draining blood just kills the victims. The Sun doesn't kill them.
  • Villain Opening Scene: The film starts with a farmer being possessed by the Lifeforce.
