Alien scared the bajesus outta me!
It’s probably one of the best monster movies ever made. Hands down. Also, it has the best tagline in movie history: “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Bwahahaha
The only predictable thing in the film for me was the order in which everybody was going to die. Even as a sixteen year old, I understood how Hollywood economics worked and since John Hurt was the most famous actor on the payroll of this film…I knew he’d get it first! I just had no idea how spectacularly he’d get it. All the way down to the sole survivor (SPOILERS), this unknown actress named with the weird first name – Sigourney.
In other words, it’s a recipe for awesome story telling.
