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.

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

" Date: 5/26/2019 Viewed: 4K UHD Re-Watch Note: I watched the movie in 4K UHD for the 40th anniversary. The movie looks amazing in 4K UHD as if I was watching it for the first time. So many people already talk about this movie to death, so I can't add anything new to say. Just a perfect sci-fi horror movie in my opinion."
