Lifeforce is an 80s movie which mixes together a few different genres. The movie begins as a standard science fiction story. Modern day astronauts are sent to get a closer look at Haley's comet. It's set up as a chance for a rare, if standard, data gathering mission. However, the astronauts chance on a strange object within the tail of the comet. They disembark in order to investigate the abnormality. What they find is a surprise, as it's distinctly non-alien. Instead, they discover what appears to be three comatose humans within sealed chambers. They prepare to take these figures back to earth with them, and that's when communication with earth dies off.

Another expedition is sent out to discover what happened to the original team. What they find ends up changing the genre to something closer to horror than science fiction. The crew is all dead, and one of the escape pods is missing. The new team takes the humanoids to earth, where they awaken as something quite unexpected. They're not people, instead they simply have the form of human beings. In reality they're actually space vampires who can turn human beings into mindless zombies. The movie then becomes a whirlwind as humanity tries to save itself from space vampires.
