She’s heeeere!

Tobe Hooper was riding high from the success of Poltergeist when he signed a three picture deal with Cannon Films.  Then came Lifeforce.  It should have been a smash hit–an effects heavy event film from the director of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and the writer of Alien.  Instead it was a notorious flop that would begin Cannon Films’ bankruptcy and hamstring production of Superman IV.  How did such a bomb get made, and is the film really that bad?  As a donor you can listen and find out!
