Movie Idea #3: LIFEFORCE 2

Lifeforce is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated science-fiction movies to come out of at least the 1980s. Based on a book by British novelist Colin Wilson, titled The Space Vampires, this 1985 movie exudes a multitude of themes from police drama to Gothic fantasy and from sci-fi to old school practical horror. While unfocused in many respects, it was also a fountain of fresh ideas at the time and one of the movies that keep inspiring me. I'm a fan of Lovecraft's cosmic horror and, while I admit I never read the book, I do know there isn't much of it in the movie, but little there is has a lot of potential. I wanted to see that in a sequel, but there never came one. Maybe for the best.

On that note, please keep in mind that this opening script is purely a passionate work of fan-fiction and in no way intended for production or meant to infringe on any copyright rules. That being said, please enjoy! I am open to criticism and I strive to learn.
