I remember watching an animated film 20+ years ago about vampires in space but can't seem to find out the name of it or who made it. Remember one scene where a character gets sucked out an airlock and explodes, only to then reform in space.

Any ideas?

  • That was a full-fledged film? Not an animated series?

  • @Jenayah Sure it was a film. Rented it out the videos shop when going thro a Manga phase. Getting PO'd I can't find it. Sep 12, 2018 at 20:53
  • @Seamusthedog alright, was thinking of Little Vampire but it's not that known, and a series (and probably not translated). Still worth putting it somewhere in a "vampires in space" question... The series is awful, though.

  • @Jenayah this was a gore/horror type anime. If only Global Video was still with us! Sep 12, 2018 at 21:03

Honorable mention for Lifeforce, a 1985 film about space vampires.

Terran astronauts discover a space ship hundreds of miles long in the wake of Haley's comet. Onboard the spaceship are three naked humanoid aliens suspended in cylinders. Upon return to Earth, the aliens awaken and start feeding on humans. Yum yum.

Unsure about the exploding out the airlock scene.

    Looks terrible, so bad it could be good but not what I'm thinking about. Mine is an animated film Aug 25, 2018 at 22:57

    Aw, It weren't that bad. I saw it at the cinema when it first came out and then bought the video (VHS) as soon as it was released. In hindsight it weren't that good either!

    There is a scene where someone basically exudes all their blood and that blood forms a human figure that speaks to the protagonists. This could loosely fit the description of someone exploding and reforming.
