Lifeforce [1985 feature film]

Ancient alien forces are taking possession of London, turning some of the inhabitants into mindless zombies, while feeding on very life of others! No, it's not Quatermass and the Pit, but the rather potty Tobe Hooper-directed Lifeforce. As SAS officer Caine (Peter Firth) searches for the alien vampires in the devastated capital, he passes "Chancery Lane" Underground station, just as the hapless commuters within are destroyed.

The mock-up of the Leslie Greene-style exterior is nice enough, but utterly wrong for the Central line, the stations of which the architect never worked on. The escalator and lower concourse, however, appears to be the real thing.
