Must be investigated
The scariest film ever made. Fantastic character development, plot delivery, tension tightened to max. Altogether a film that was better then than all since and will remain a classic forever.

AMAZING FILM!
Can't believe it's 33 years old. As others have said, it hasn't dated at all. In fact it BETTER than the dreadful computer generated effects of today. Only cheesy bit is when the Alien busts out of the guys stomach and is all like "WHAAASUUUP!" :-)

SIMPLY NOT DATED !!
Can you believe it was made in 1979 ? A fantastic Sci-Fi and Horor film rolled into one. Before the studios watered down Sci-Fi film content to appeal to kiddies in order to sell toys and video games they made great films like this...enjoy this classic - cos they really don't make 'em like this anymore !!!

Great film but...
If I had to choose between watching Alien or Aliens (Special Edition), it would be Aliens every time.

A classic
A 31 year old film and its still not dated, lots of suspense and horror... love it! Shame about the terrible Alien vs Predator movies when they tried to revive the series... they should have made Alien 5 instead with Sigourney Weaver.

3 in a row
First three Alien films over the next 3 nights. Can't wait, time to cancel all plans and turn into the hermit I've always longed to be.

Can't wait
The first three Alien films in 3 successive nights. Time to cancel all plans and become the hermit I've always wanted to be.
