    This is a movie, where i still recall how I first encountered it. Years ago, I used to go through the discount VHS rack at a K-Mart. There was all sorts of stuff in there. I got some goodies through that, such as, "The Stuff", and also films that I felt mixed about, such as LifeForce. My first mistake, was at that time I overlooked that it was a, "Video Treasures" release. The tape was in LP speed.... Still, better than EP! Even to this day I recall the first 1/3 - 1/2 of the film being pretty interesting, having a coherent enough plot, then it trails off someplace. The pace changes, and I lose track a bit about all that is going on. Something about the last half or so of the film it just gets to a point in my brain of, "What the fuck is going on, again?"

    Life Force, it's one I need to revisit again, since it has probably been 10 years since I last saw it. It's an interesting movie, it just loses something about 1/3-1/2 of the way through the film. Also, it does hold a bit of nostalgia for me, as I recall that discount rack of oddball stuff at the K-Mart from many years ago. The Stuff was a gem of a pick up, though. Watched that numerous times with numerous friends. I'd pick up a 4K release of both at some point!

    I love the movie and Henry Mancini's score. The "Lifeforce Theme" is one of the greatest sci-fi themes ever! Right up there with the "Buckaroo Banzai Theme" heard during the end credits of that film, and the "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century Theme" from the 1979 TV series! When MGM's DVD came out, it was one of the first movies I had bought on DVD. By the time I had ten DVDs, three of them were Tobe Hooper films: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and 'Salem's Lot were the other two.

    I had heard that Japanese packaging was very accurate, so this checks out.

    From the Scream FB page:

    ***LIFEFORCE News***
    We want to alert you today that our “Collector's Edition” release of LIFEFORCE (which came out in June of 2013) is now an out-of-print item and will be replaced with another version.
    Here's what will be different about the new product on all future pressings:
    - The vintage “Making of Lifeforce” featurette will no longer be available.
    - Artwork is slightly different: The original theatrical artwork (pictured here) is now front-facing, and the Justin Osbourn-created piece will be on the reverse wrap.
    - We are removing the “Collector's Edition” branding.
    - Slipcover will not be offered.


    Because of these changes, we felt it was only fair to also drop the price. The “Collector's Edition” release had a suggested retail price of $29.93. The new version will be $22.97.
    If you already bought the Collector's Edition version - like most hardcore fans of the film did - then this strategy does not affect you except that the CE version is now more “collector-y” than before.
    Additionally, this change-of-plans in unique only to this release. This is a special case that was unforeseen so please do not be concerned that this will happen on a regular basis with other Collector Editions.
    Street date for the new, lower-priced version is set for 9/9.

    One thing about the Scream Factory release, it is the only one that has Tobe Hooper approved color timing, but, looking at the caps-a-holic comparison the Arrow has a better encode.

    Item Under Review
    This product is not currently offered by Amazon.co.uk because a customer recently told us that the item he or she received was not as described.

    We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you may still find this product available from other sellers on this page

    What ???

    The steelback is cute as a button but you'd better buy it fast before amazon pulls it:
