"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

I believe that when discussing the awesomeness of Ridley Scott, the argument always, and I mean always, comes down to just two films: Alien and Blade Runner.

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"A film whose shadow looms darkly over subsequent decades of horror and sci-fi, Ridley Scott’s Alien is a master class in the evocation of escalating dread. Made forever distinctive by H.R. Giger’s visual rendering of psychosexual horror and biomechanical hellscapes, not to mention the unusual foregrounding of working-class and female characters, Alien is still—at its core—a prototypical haunted-house picture. It just happens to be one of the most artful, flawlessly executed examples of t"

"De esas pocas películas de terror que en verdad me hacen sentir por lo que pasa el protagonista sin necesidad de screamers baratos como hoy en día. Aprende de algo en lugar de arruinarlo, cine de terror actual"
