“One of the most perfect science fiction thrillers of all time … it’s a scary, scary movie.” – Kevin Carr, Film Threat
Released to theatres in the summer of 1979, Ridley Scott’s Alien unleashes an interstellar nightmare of the worst kind when an unknown life form invades a spacecraft and proceeds to lay waste to every human in sight. On the way home from a mission for the “Company,” the Nostromo’s crew is awakened from hibernation by the ship’s Mother computer to answer a distress signal from the nearby planet of LV-426. Upon landing, Capt. Dallas’s (Tom Skerritt) rescue team discovers a bizarre pod field, but things get even stranger when a face-hugging creature bursts out of a pod and attaches itself to Kane (John Hurt). Over the objections of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), science officer Ash (Ian Holm) lets Kane back on the ship. The nasty incubus detaches itself from an apparently recovered Kane, but when an alien erupts from Kane’s stomach and escapes, it’s clear things are about to take a turn for the worse. Soon the freaky, unstoppable, insect-like xenomorph (brilliantly designed by H.R. Giger) is on the rampage and it’s mighty apparent that not everyone is getting off the ship alive. A highly-influential shocker that spawned a franchise and created a new action heroine in Sigourney Weaver, Alien is a truly timeless terror classic that’s twice as terrifying on the big screen! (Dir. by Ridley Scott, 1979, USA/UK, 117 mins., Rated R)
