Probably one of the most horrifying film in the early 80's. It has the gore, scares and the effective chills. "Alien" is an amazing piece of filmmaking, the best of the sci-fi horror genre. "It's Scary...!"... Full review

Just one notch below its sequel "Aliens". However that being said this film ranks as possibly the greatest of Sci-Fi hoorers. Great visuals, solid acting, and a very creepy score by Jerry Goldsmith. All in all a must see.... Full review

In space, no one can hear you scream, but that doesn't mean you won't scream when you see this movie. This is a masterpiece of sci-fi films because of its brilliant acting, terrific direction, and the memorably frightning scenes.... Full review

a sense that there is a better movie nestled deep inside, waiting to burst forth.....In its opening sections, Alien rattles around a space freighter (the Nostromo) and introduces us to its bickering crew (John Hurt and Ian Holm among them).....It is, if you appreciate this sort of thing, a perfectly serviceable film.....The film bursts into hideous life with one of cinema's most notorious setpieces.....Alien was the film that set the visual template (grungy and industrial) for any director keen to shoot a p ...

it's the very best movie ever created....Many movie lovers struggle when asked what their favorite films of all time are, but not me.....When he's finished with " Robin Hood ," Scott has to be very thoughtful about his next film....."Brave New World" is the perfect project to cut his teeth on again.....It's about the slick, stealthy monsters with two sets of jaws that lurk in the walls;.... ...
