Alien

Alien

Awakened from hypersleep to answer a mysterious distress signal, the crew of the Nostromo are plunged into a nightmare of survival against the most implacable killing organism in the universe. An instant classic, Alien launched careers (Sigourney Weaver’s debut and only Scott’s second film) and a franchise, not to mention irrevocably changing horror and sci-fi films, monsters and industrial design aesthetics in cinema; including costume designs by Moebius (1938-2012). A slow burning masterpiece of terror, never to be missed on the big screen.
