    Wow! It was so cutting edge for its time. A suspense horror film set in space. The jerry Goldsmith score is creepy and a great one too! Great actors like Skerritt, weaver and kotto as well. It’s so memorable and influential as a film too.
    I’d love to see it in the theater as I have only seen it on tv via home video.
    I saw many of the sequels but this original film was the best one hands down. The sequel goes way into the action for example while this film is much more suspenseful for its payoff.
    Hope I win!!

    Director Ridley Scott crafted a cross-genre classic when he made “Alien”. Although it wasn’t released in what may be considered the “Classic Film Era”, it is an amazing example of classic film-work, encompassing Sci-Fi (obviously), Mystery, Horror and an Incredible Character Study of Protagonists and an Antagonist in an Impossible situation. I recall seeing Alien in a theater on it’s initial release, but I’d love to let my daughter (who has never seen the film) to experience Alien for the first time the way that I did may years ago.

    I saw this movie when it came out, and my brother and I were so scared by the end we were peeking around corners and looking in the back end of my truck to make sure the alien wasn’t waiting for us.

    It is a classic in that it has spawned a half-dozen more movies, either stand as part of the series or the cross overs with the Predator series. It was a classic monster movie, with dark, scary sets, guns that fired but couldn’t kill the monster, a machine that told them where the monster was but always too late and it had an alien baby popping out of John Hurt – wow, bigger scare than mom in Psycho, and I want my son (21) to see that on the big screen! – and we also had Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, Ian Holm, and Yaphet Kotto. Sigourney Weaver was a no-BS heroine who took out the monster who had killed the rest of the crew, took out the robot science officer and saved the kitty cat. How much can one woman do in a single movie. We didn’t know what was coming in the movie, just like 1931’s Frankenstein or 1960’s Psycho, and that was classic!

    I have seen this movie, its scary, but I think it would be more scarier for me on the big screen

  5. Julie moon says:

    I never was a fan of horror/sci-fi until I saw “Alien”! Frightening, suspenseful and fantastic- the story, the characters, the effects and of course Sigourney Weaver elevate this film to classic stature! One of my favorites.

  6. Matt Greenwell says:

    Weaver and the special effects make this film, well, special.

  7. Chris Teel says:

    Alien was so many things. It was sci-fi with its setting in the future in space; it was horror with an alien that progressed, changed, and grew into a monster; it was a last woman standing slasher of sorts, with crew meeting deaths more gruesome than the last, until only Ripley remained; and it was suspense, armrest gripping, popcorn munching suspense. Any film that can be all those things is classic.

  8. Ron Adams says:

    ALIEN was the scariest haunted house movie in outer space there ever was! It drew from such Golden Era films as The Old Dark House and The Cat and the Canary to move the killer on the loose to the far reaches of our galaxy.
