Alien

In Cinemas Now

In space no one can hear you scream.

The 1979 sci-fi horror that spawned a franchise, directed by a young Ridley Scott (his second film).

Sigourney Weaver stars as Ripley, a member of the Nostromo spaceship that - while on its way back to Earth - responds to an SOS on another planet. They find a derelict alien ship and investigate. A bad move, and the terror begins. Think Jaws on a spaceship.

A great original.

Empire (UK)

press

A movie masterpiece. And on the big screen, the chestburster scene just kills.

Guardian (UK)

press

Superbly paced, imaginatively designed, consistently suspenseful and never attracts an unintentional laugh.

Variety (USA)

press

An old-fashioned scary movie set in a highly realistic sci-fi future, made all the more believable by expert technical craftmanship.

BBC

press

One of the greatest sci-fi movies ever made.

The pick of the stomach popping bunch
