New Blu Ray/Limited Edition SteelBook From Arrow Films! Welcome LifeForce To The Blog!14:56:00
Hello My Lovely's,
I received this in my Inbox the other day but was unable to blog about it due to my arm and then my friend had her birthday party last night and I had to go help make crazy chips, so huge apologises on my behalf.
When I was at the event for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire', the other week, I spoke to a man who at the time worked for Think Jam. He has now moved to a new company called Arrow Films, who work on many features, including the one I am going to tell you about now.
Arrow Videos are pleased, to announce the release of Tobe Hooper’s cult sci-fi classic, 'LifeForce' to Blu Ray and Steelbook. The restored classic will be available to buy from the 30th of September making it the first time the film has been available on this format in the UK.
Not only is this the films first Blu Ray release but the disc comes packed full of extra features and a restoration of the film which was overlooked by the director himself.
Originally released in 1986, just after his fantastic film 'Poltergeist', Hooper became famed for horrors, including the 1974 classic ' The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'. A film that stills leaves a chill down its audience’s spine. He was always known as the director who pushed the boundaries which was the reason behind his horror/sci-fi epic with a devoted cult following, 'Lifeforce'!
The film is based on Colin Wilson’s novel ‘The Space Vampires’ and focuses on a space shuttle crew who find a mysterious spacecraft. Inside their world is turned around when they discover it contains three human looking creatures, all of which in a state of suspended animation.
Bringing them back to Earth for further tests, the crew are shocked to find that the creatures are in fact a rare form of space Vampires, who feed off people's life force instead of blood. Chaos soon erupts when the creatures escape and run wild in London, causing apocalyptic consequences.
Fans of the film will be excited to know that the theme of the plot runs throughout, including its packaging. The new editions come with a reversible disc which includes the original artwork of the film and a stunning new illustration.
