Locations Notes

Rewind the locations where they filmed the 1985 Sci-Fi movie starring Mathilda May, Peter Firth, Steve Railsback More Cast

Locations Manager(s): Geoff Austin

Lifeforce Filming Locations:

Chancery Lane (London Underground Station) was used.

I think some of the European Space Agency exteriors were done at what is now BBC Elstree. (It used to be ATV, do you remember Gerry Anderson's UFO? -Those exteriors). Other work was done there, I played one of the zombie vampires in the film and we rehearsed our parts there and some pick up shots were also done filmed there. [Thanks to Simon Collins]

I was one of the special extras who appeared in the film, eg first zombie to walk out of door on roof of PM offices, zombie to get shot in head in ally by peter firth (it took too many takes), and close up of my contact lenses just after Frank Finlay gets killed. The first location I worked at was a hospital/convent in watford used as the mental home, we also used the car park as the roof of the PM's offices for the helicopter to land. [Thanks to Martin Hauke]

LX Preview

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!

Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.

We are pleased to be able to bring you a sneak peek at what LX locations will be available for Lifeforce upon release:

European Space Research Centre
Dr Armstrong's Mental Hospital
Seducing Grandpa
Prowling The Countryside
'Hyde Park'
Carlson's Capsule
