Alien

In Theatre : May 25, 1979
Director(s): Ridley Scott

On what should have been a trip back to Earth, the Nostromo, a mining freighter, is automatically re-routed to a desolate planet after receiving an SOS coming from it.

After the crew is awakened, they investigate the source of the SOS, and discover a derelict alien ship on the planet. One of the crew members is put into a coma by an alien creature while investigating the ship.

But the alien parasite dies and the crew think all is well. But the small ordeal was only a prelude for greater things to come.

Aliens (Director's Cut) Review by alex1176

James Cameron's intense follow-up to Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi chiller "Alien" is one nightmarish roller-coaster ride. It's also one of the best sequels ever. Sigourney Weaver reprises her role as Ellen Ripley, the s...
Alien (1979) Review by gabs1515

Often imitated, NEVER duplicated. Paragraphs with the ** hold spoilers. Alien is one of those movies that damn near changes your life.  I have seen the films dozens of times, and still to this day it terrifies me.&n...
Alien Review by azathoth

First off, if you have not seen this film or know nothing about it, stop reading RIGHT NOW AND GO RENT IT!  Sorry about that, but I wouldn't be able to write more than "Space, alien, scary" without ruining large amo...
Alien (1979) Review by Gardenofstone10

Alien and its three sequels (I'm ignoring the AVP movies) are some of the best in scifi horror.  The first two, specifically are the best.  First and foremost, the plot.  Alien starts with a group of 7...
Alien Review by alex1176

Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi terror tale ranks up with "The Exorcist" as the scariest major studio movie of the 1970's. Like William Friedkin's Oscar-winning shocker, "Alien" is an effective movie because it s...
