Oh, The Horror! #25: Alien

ImageSo... yeah. I finally saw this movie. I know, I know, where the heck have I been, huh? But better late than never as they say. And man, this was a fun watch. Sigourney Weaver stars as Lt. Ellen Ripley as she battles a terrifying alien life form that stalks and kills the space crew of the Nostromo. At first a slow moving film but when the Alien starts to come into the picture and becomes a big problem, you're hooked. The first part of the film mostly has to do with the workers trying to go back to Earth after having to haul a refinery and twenty million tons of mineral ore until they receive a transmission from a nearby planetoid. While there, they discover strange remains of a giant alien, ribs all exposed. Kane, played by John Hurt, discovers a mysterious egg that hatches. The creature inside it attacks him and paralyzes him while attaching itself onto his face. The crew rush him back into the ship and tries to get the creature off of him to discover the creature's blood is acid as it leaks and drips several floors. The creature eventually detaches itself and dies, Kane soon awakening.Everyone assumes everything is fine and dandy until during a lunch break, Kane's chest bursts open with a small alien popping out in oe of the most memorable scenes in horror. My cousins and baby sister screamed in disgust while I just applauded and laughed. The rest of the film now consists of the crew attempting to track down the alien while it stalks and eliminates each crew member one by one. It's a lot of fun and a very suspenceful film. Nice little scares here and there.

The acting and directing were all top notched and helped keep you at the edge of your seat with a smile on your face. I'm looking forward to seeing the sequels, hopefully they're as good as this one was.ImageImage
