Lifeforce (1985)
Space Vampires
Vampires from Outer Space

Nomination Year: 2006
SYNOPSIS:  A spaceship commanded by B-movie staple Steve Railsback finds an alien ship while investigating Halley's Comet. Inside the ship are a bunch of dead bat-like aliens and three humanoids perfectly preserved in suspended animation. Weeks later, the ship returns to Earth orbit with the crew dead and the suspended animation capsules in the hold. The capsules are returned to Earth and taken to a London lab for study. The humanoids turn out to be space vampires who escape and kill lots of British people, including Patrick Stewart. Meanwhile, Steve Railsback crash-lands in Texas in the ship's escape pod and makes his way to England where he teams up with an SAS Colonel and a scientist with really bad hair to defeat the space vampires.

Crummiest Ending

"You're One of Us; Let's Go!"
Steve Railsback is making out with the female vampire. She tells him that he's one of them and always has been. The SAS guy throws him a sword. Steve stabs it through both the vamp and himself.
