      (Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt)

      The original Alien is widely regarded as a science fiction classic. Although plenty of attention is paid to the production values and set design in terms of the spacecraft and aliens themselves, both of these elements don’t appear to be the focus. Instead, Alien becomes a tale of survival and trust, with characters getting picked off on by one, while the remaining


      characters struggle to get a handle on what they are dealing with and must decide quickly if and how they can rely on one another while their other-worldly discovery works its menace.

      Anyone who hasn’t seen Alien and has had their first doses of science fiction fed to them by today’s intrepid servings of the genre may in fact find Alien to be a little slow in its ...


      • pacing, but this is a film that combines horror and suspense with science fiction action, that allows the terror of the unknown to build in such a way that outer space may be the setting, but inner space is what must be feared the most. As the tag line suggests, “In space, no one can hear you scream.”

        It really is incumbent upon any film buff

        to add this to their DVD library. And for any science fiction fan, this film is an absolute necessity. Not only is Alien a film of exceptionally high story-telling and production value quality, but it was one of the earliest films of master director Ridley Scott, whose career only grew to greater heights. Own this film as soon as possible. You’ll be glad you did.
