Alien (1979)
Movie Review by The Undertaker
04.23.03

Alien (1979) Classic sci-fi horror directed by Ridley Scott went on to become legendary and much copied over the years. Alien monsters hiding and tearing humans apart wasn't a new idea, but it was never done before like in '79's Alien. The poor old Nostromo picks up a passenger after landing to investigate a distress signal from some piss poor dead-ass looking planet. Who can forget the infamous chest-bursting scene? H. R. Giger's alien creature designs still are the best around, so give the man some credit. This film had a great cast, tense drama, and the sterile interior of the ship lends itself to the cat and mouse game that the crew must play with the monster. I saw this thing a few years back on the big screen at a special midnight AMC showing and even though the print was old and grainy, it did still impress. I think all 30 of us that showed up that midnight got a real treat cause a TV screen doesn't do this thing justice at all. Gory enough for our enjoyment, suspenseful, and the supreme alien monster gives us a film never to be forgotten. In short, perhaps the best modern era sci-fi horror film ever.
