This is one I'm really excited about. One of director Tobe Hooper's less popular films from 1985, but one of my favorites from his filmography. Sure it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, is odd in some places and in all honesty, can be a mess, but it's about a hot naked vampire from space. What the Hell else do you need? And I'm not talking some quick boob action, I'm talking full on nudity and quite frequently from the insanely hot Mathilda May. Add to that Tobe Hooper's impressive visuals, the late great Dan O'Bannon (Alien, Return of the Living Dead, Total Recall) on writing duties and some outstanding special effects and you've got a fun film. Never really dug Steve Railsback in the lead because he just never seemed like leading man material and just seems out of place for most of the time, but that's a minor complaint.
