Alien is a haunted house movie set in outer space. Ridley Scott does a fantastic job of using the “less is more” motif to play our fears against us without showing the alien a whole lot in the movie.
Sigourney Weaver plays Ripley and cements her as one of the most badass heroes in film history. She would reprise her role in 3 sequels, all varying in quality.
Watch this film if for no other reason than the chestburster scene.
An absolute masterpiece that is still appreciated today.Follow us on social media and subscribe to the show:
