Tobe Hooper film....since it's HOOPTOBER!
This was an ambitious film and though it fell short of its reach, was still an interesting story, if watched in an indulgent mood.
Though it is fair to expect colorful exploitation garbage from the Golan-Globus outfit, this one seemed to have some verve. Based on a literary source, The Space Vampires (a better title), this alien/vampire invasion flick had a lot of fun moments.
I originally saw it on a panned and scanned VHS tape and it was not very impressive. Caught it today on Shudder and the print was nice and colorful...a whole different perception to me. I recommend it though there are quite a few dissenters out there in Letterboxd Nation. Peace.
