Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Oh, Mathilda May. You introduced a generation of young boys to some very strange feelings and God bless you for it.
Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce is a pretty spectacular piece of weird sci-fi horror and is my favorite non-Texas Chainsaw Massacre or “half of Poltergeist” things that Tobe Hooper has ever done. It’s the one movie I hold on to when discussing Hooper as a filmmaker, the one that gives me hope that his input on Poltergeist was more than just a coked up figurehead.
There’s a lot of visual flair in Lifeforce that feels Poltergeist-ish, but it’s like if you take some of the photographic elegance of Poltergeist and mix it with the craziness of Chainsaw 2 or Eaten Alive.
It’s a great little ‘80s sci-fi gem. Seek it out if you haven’t seen it.
In the below pic you'll see one of the more memorable moments of the movie... not involving gratuitous Mathilda May nudity, of course. I love puppet work!
Thanks to reader Sean C. for sending this one in, which, I believe originated in an old Fango article. You can click on the pic for a bigger version!
