In space, no one can hear you scream.

Classic horror. Alien is suspensful and intense. Sigorney Weaver as Ripley is the original tough female lead that so much of sci/fi now tries to recapture, but seems to fall miserably short by not remembering the character's humanity. The effects are amazing even now and go a long way toward showing you exactly what we loose by going to digital heavy effects.

If you are a fan of horror or science fiction, this movie is a must watch.

Classic space horror!

If you're a fan of sci-fi movies or horror movies and haven't seen Alien, please extricate yourself from under that rock and get on it immediately! Thirty-five years later, this movie still makes me squirm with tension every time I see it. Ridley Scott took the schlocky science-fiction creature feature genre and brought it to a whole other level. This is one of my favorite films of all time.
