PODCAST 270: Life Force & Embrace of the Vampire [Stupid Amount of Nudity Edition]


This week Forest ends his run of cheap alien reviews with Tobe Hooper's titillating sci-fi take on the Dracula legend, Life Force. Cory joins in with a vampire film that borders on soft-core porno, Embrace of the Vampire - staring Alyssa Milano's breasts.

The Horror Duo also chat about what is to come from Robert Egger's Nosferatu remake, the death of Sonny Landham and eating food that'll kill ya. All this, and they address the fact that discussing politics and other non-film related topics makes them giant hypocrites.

One reviewer suggested that LIFEFORCE resembles all three Quatermass films in rapid succession: the early scenes on the spaceship echoing THE CREEPING UNKNOWN, the body-jumping scenes resembling ENEMY FROM SPACE, and the chaos in London segment at the end being a callback to FIVE MILLION YEARS TO EARTH.

And now a neckbeard question: Have you ever come across a film that was sold on the strength of its lead actress's snack trays, only to react, "they're not all that impressive?"

I sometimes think that WB is trying to kill the superhero genre of film, dead.

For God's sake don't review another John Carpenter film!
