One of the more exciting Scream Factory titles this year is the Blu-ray/DVD Collector's Edition of Lifeforce. While originally scheduled for release on April 30th, the date has been pushed back.
Scream Factory announced that the new date is June 18th, and we don't think fans will be complaining too much. The reason for the delay is that they are spending more time to prepare a very solid batch of bonus features, which include a new audio commentary with Tobe Hooper, a cast & crew retrospective, and more. Here are more details on the upcoming release:
LIFEFORCE Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™ + DVD Combo Pack: From the director of Poltergeist and the co-writer of Alien comes a thrilling sci-fi adventure of explosive action and pulse-pounding suspense! With mind-blowing special effects by Academy Award® winner John Dykstra (1977 Best Visual Effects, Star Wars), Lifeforce is a gripping mélange of genres that’s “so bizarre, it’s fascinating” (Leonard Maltin)!
A mission to investigate Halley's Comet discovers an even stranger phenomenon: an alien spacecraft! Following a deadly confrontation, the aliens arrive on Earth, where their seductive leader begins a terrifying campaign to drain the lifeforce of everyone she encounters. Her victims, in turn, continue the cycle, and soon the entire planet is in mortal danger. And when the mission's sole survivor (Steve Railsback – The Stunt Man) sets out to destroy her, he comes face to face with the most charming - and horrifying – being he's ever known. Will he be able to destroy the lovely vampiress...or will he become yet another victim of her fatal charm?
