An absolute classic Horror sci-fi film. Amazing practical effects for it's time. And a truly gorgeous looking alien figure definitely worth that Blu-ray pickup.

My personal favorite horror film. The characters and setting feel as real as the Xenomorph is scary. One of the greatest and iconic films ever made.

always a scary movie every time you see it. even when you know what's coming (after multiple viewings), it still manages to make you jump. Not only that, when you're not jumping, it gives you time to think, and that's just as terrifying. the alien creature itself is ingeniously frightening, more because of what isn't shown than what is....

Pioneered the tech-noir genre, and has remained a one of a kind sci-fi classic with tension and effective build-up.

One nail biting space flic that is a classic on its own

A monumental well crafted cosmic horror, and essential cult classic? yes.
A dated not aged well product of their times movies? also yes

A great example of what the older movies can do with special effects and a group of talented actors. Sci-fi horror done right

Hands down my favorite Sci-Fi of all time. "Alien" literally puts you in the shoes of the Nostromo crew and brings you on their journey through hell. By the end of the movie you're left thinking about life outside of Earth, and just how terrifying it could be.

Alien(1979) is still the greatest horror movie ever made

A pretty unique film that adds a lot of interesting scientific elements into a somewhat horror film otherwise.

The best science fiction horror film ever made. End of discussion.

It says Alien because the Alien has a screentime of no more than 4 minutes

Perfect sci-fi horror creates unique intensity and atmosphere along with one of the scariest monsters ever.

While this movie starts off slower than I would like it to, it is still beautifully shot and pays off in the end. This is the one that started them all. and it still looks amazing in high definition!

This movie is a cinematic masterpiece. The strategic filmmaking process Scott uses in this film keeps the audience on the edge of their seats and biting their nails in suspense. Horror movies of today may take note of the genius way that Scott keeps the fear of the movie constant without need for cheap jump-scare tactics or throwaway moments. Alien is completely suspenseful and frightening throughout the entire runtime and will have you obsessed with its lore and in-universe details by the end of the film
