Lifeforce is a 1985 science fiction film directed by Tobe Hooper. Screenplay by Dan O'Bannon and Don Jakoby, from the novel Space Vampires by Colin Wilson. Starring Steve Railsback, Peter Firth, Frank Finlay, Mathilda May, Patrick Stewart, Aubrey Morris, Michael Gothard, Nicholas Ball.


Note: Space Girl is not a lesbian (at least there is nothing in the movie to adduce such a claim with any explicitness), but she is certainly a malignant, parasitic, genocidal extraterrestrial vampire who exploits her apparently "human" and apparently "female" sexuality to ensnare individual (male) victims, as well as to enslave and destroy entire planetary populations.
