A landmark of science fiction and horror, Alien arrived in 1979 between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back as a stylishly malevolent alternative to George Lucas's space fantasy. Partially inspired by 1958's It! The Terror from Beyond Space, this instant classic set a tone of its own, offering richly detailed sets, ominous atmosphere, relentless suspense, and a flawless ensemble cast as the crew of the space freighter Nostromo, who fall prey to a vicious creature (designed by Swiss artist H.R. Giger) that had gestated inside one of the ill-fated crew members. In a star-making role, Sigourney Weaver excels as sole survivor Ripley, becoming the screen's most popular heroine in a lucrative movie franchise. To measure the film's success, one need only recall the many /images that have been burned into our collective psyche, including the "facehugger," the "chestburster," and Ripley's climactic encounter with the full-grown monster. Impeccably directed by Ridley Scott, Alien is one of the cinema's most unforgettable nightmares.


By far the most impressive Scif-Fi film for its time..


I will not ramble on about the undeniable qualities about this film..I beleive I speak for everyone when i say this film is in a class all by itself.



It was a spine chilling movie with suspense and action.I would give it a 10/10.

This Movie Is amazing

The Drizzle

This is by far one of the best scifi movies i have ever seen. The Best scence is when you first see the alien come out of the chest. It came out of know where thats why its so scary.

A really great series


This movie was so great i could not explain in words how good it is. I think that aliens was also a great movie it really expaned the series with all the cool action secens with the aliens get mowed down by the marines. Its really hard to compare the two because they are very differnt alien was meant to be suspenseful and aliens was meant to be more of an action movie. But they are both great and i definatly reccomed the both of them.

Best movie of 20th century and it's still one of the best!


This movie is the best in the Alien Saga. You have to watch this if you want to understand the whole saga. One of the best movies ever made and probably one of the best that will be ever made.



The best science fiction movie ever made. No other is better than this. This is as good as it gets!

In space, nobody can hear you scream

This movie might be considered a classic, but honestly it's just to slow for me. It's not really that scary either. I loved it when I was younger, but now that I'm older I feel it's actually the most boring one in the series. It does have great actors and great direction, so I can't say anything bad about the movie, cuz honestly it is a masterpiece, but it's a slow one and therefor I can only give it 3 stars out of 5.



I've seen all of the movies and played almost all the games. But i'de say that this is the best movie of all the movies!
