Alien (1979)

By Robert Kirchgassner ,
the classic Ridley Scott film

This is another film I enjoy watching during this time of year. Yes, its recent prequel, Prometheus, proved almost as disappointing as the three prequels to Star Wars (1977), but the genius and success of Alien cannot be denied.

Some have called the film a redo of It: The Terror From Beyond Space (1958), but I’ve always likened Alien more to the classic Agatha Christie novel And Then There Were None. Both stories have a limited number of characters and an isolated feel to them.
