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

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. Both masterpieces in their genre (both are sci-fi) and both are some of the greatest films ever made. I seen and heard of this conversation so many times that there should be a Team Alien and Team Blade Runner now, so that fans can finally st... read more

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★★★ NOTES: 2003 director’s cut. In lighter scenery the dust is easiest to notice, and the scene in which facehugged Kane is under investigation is overlaid by several brown burn marks three times. Other than that, this 19-year-old print is very close to pristine, close to how it must have looked and felt on its original release. DATE: August 3rd 2022 CINEMA: The Prince Charles Cinema LOCATION: West End"

"Re-watch - Feb. 5th I was talking to my daughter recently, and she asked me when she can start watching R-rated horror movies. We talked about it, and came to an agreement that she could start watching some of them. Obviously there are plenty that at age 11 she is NOT ready for yet, but I'm well-versed enough in the genre to know which is which. Thus I let Alien be her first, and she definitely enjoyed it. She found it more creepy than scary, and agreed with Ripley that they should have stuck t"
