Although the essence of the film is nothing new, "Foreign", like the creation itself – the original horror. Nothing of the sort before or after was not. Almost 40 years later, Alien remains one of the most iconic and memorable monsters in the history of cinema. Still I feel this sharp classic the love.
Released two years after star of the epic "Star wars. Episode IV: a New hope" (1977), a film by Ridley Scott destroys any hopes of a blissful life in space. The Director puts an end to the beauties and wonders of space travel. A distant planet are infernal, arid and hostile to man. Majestic space ships turned into closed cells. Ghastlier and complements the atmosphere of the alien demon that is born through death. This film is like a warning from the past to the future: "do Not go into space!"
Since then, the cult tape by Ridley Scott added three sequels ("Aliens" (1986), "Alien 3" (1992) and "Alien 4: Resurrection" (1997)), and two goofy crossover ("Alien vs. Predator" (2004) and "Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem" (2007)) and one origin story ("Prometheus" (2012)). By the way, is coming continuation of the cult action movie "Predator" (1987). Godzilla and king Kong also returned to the big screen. However, it is important to note that there is nothing more frightening in the genre of space horror film than "Alien" by Ridley Scott, with its ruthlessness towards humanity and the exploration of spirituality and nihilism. So, I suggest you dig a little deeper and again to extract a valuable lesson: "In space, you scream no one will hear".
