The Original Alien.

Ash: Ripley, for God's sake, this is the first time that we've encountered a species like this. It has to go back. All sorts of tests have to be made.
Ripley: Ash, are you kidding? This thing bled acid. Who knows what it's gonna do when it's dead?
Ash: I think it's safe to assume it isn't a zombie.

Utterly hair-raising horror film

"You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility."

A benchmark in the science fiction genre, 1979's Alien is a simple "Jaws in space" idea which was executed with phenomenal filmmaking prowess. Alien arrived two years after the first Star Wars, and it served as a hard-hitting reminder that not ... read more

Horrifying

Straight from the twisted mind of artist HR Giger, the science fiction horror bloomed into one of the biggest cult films of all time. Sigourney Weaver steps into space to deliver one of the most horrifying performances in the genre as the Aliens delivered themselves into the nightmares of people everywhere.

Description: While returning from a deep-space mission, the crew of the commercial spaceship Nostromo is awakened by a supposed SOS call from a system they are passing through. Descending to the planet's surface, they discover a strange derelict spaceship - the apparent source of the transmission - and one of the crew descends into the hold. What he finds are thousands of strange alien eggs. While examining one of the eggs, it hatches and the parasite inside attacks him. After returning to the Nostromo the crew takes off again to head for Earth. The alien parasite subsequently dies and all seems well again. But what no one knows is that anot ... (more)

"Alien (1979) Director: Ridley Scott Writers: Dan O'Bannon, Ronald Shusett Stars: Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Ian Holm So much effort and work is put into this film, and it pays off brilliantly. The artistic design of the alien itself really shines through and allows for so many questions but no answers - perfectly capturing the mystery of the alien."

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2017) (468 movies items)

" Notes: To be honest, I have to admit that I always preffered 'Blade Runner' which is more challenging and interesting in my opinion but this movie is still really awesome. I mean, there are so many iconic landmarks here : Ripley, the Alien, the chest-burting scene, Ash,... Visually, it was really impressive and Ridley Scott managed to create a really oppressive mood which has been copied so many times afterwards. Obviously, back in those days, they didn't have any CGI at their disposal so it "
