Looking for identification for a film I haven't seen in a long, long time (maybe 2 decades ago).

The film is in colour but I remember it being quite dark, and it was made a while ago, maybe in the 70s. It was set during that time in England and featured naked human-looking aliens going around London (or some other British city) turning people into zombie like things.

The only actor I can remember in the film is Patrick Stewart. The only other person I can picture was one of the aliens who was an attractive female who was always naked. I also have vague memories of a large tower of light or a beam of light where the aliens came from or lived in.

The film stood out to me because it was a sci-fi set in England, which was a rare thing at the time I saw it.

    Maybe someone freaked out by naked zombifying aliens, and now they can't sleep at night because of you. – PoloHoleSet Jul 17 '17 at 20:13

    Possibly because you can simply look at the filmography of this actor. – A J Jul 18 '17 at 1:32

    I immediately thought of the scene in 'Extras' where he's describing a film pitch to Ricky Gervais, and the scenes keep ending with the characters clothes falling off. – Neil Jul 18 '17 at 12:54

    @AJ "Simply"? Stewart has been in a LOT of movies, and the correct title may not jump out. – Shawn V. Wilson Jul 18 '17 at 18:01

    @ShawnV.Wilson There are more than 50 movies of him and X Men and Star Trek are eliminated as OP described. OP also said that it was made in 70s, thus eliminating more movies and leaving only a few. And I suppose now it is simple to find out. – A J Jul 19 '17 at 1:27

Hot naked female alien draining Lifeforce from people, with Patrick Stewart in it?

Only one candidate -

IMDB - Lifeforce (1985)

Actress Mathilda May, with almost no wardrobe budget that was discernible, played the alien in question.

    @BrettFromLA - I was about 17 when that movie came out. It's burned into my memory. – PoloHoleSet Jul 17 '17 at 17:24

    @Jimmery - Fairly certain Patrick Stewart only made one naked alien vampire zombie-maker film :D – PoloHoleSet Jul 17 '17 at 19:00

    Fair warning: the image gallery on that IMDB page has a couple of movie posters where Mathilda May is displayed in full frontal nudity. Keep that in mind in case you're thinking about visiting the page, especially from work. – Nzall Jul 18 '17 at 7:41

The 1985 film Lifeforce had Stewart as Dr. Armstrong. It was about alien vampires that made zombies in London.

Much like Alien Vampires, Patrick Stewart also hasn't aged since 1985.

    Sadly, in the very few recent years, he actually has appeared to start picking up some years. Unless of course that's just what he wants everyone to think. He is quite a skilled actor after all. – Michael Richardson Jul 17 '17 at 22:28
