    I've only gotten to appreciate it once I've gotten a bit older. Before, it was too dark, too slow, too boring for my taste. But now I like it just as much as Alien 2. It's just so visually and conceptually compelling – in those scenes where they actually do show something. And in the scenes they don't … leaving out the right parts at the right times, and leaving that up for the individual psyche to fill out can sometimes be SO effective.

    And it's damn effective here.

    Score: 9.0 (Fantastic!)

    ‘Nothing happens for 45 minutes,’ a studio boss sniped to Ridley Scott about ‘Alien’, failing monumentally to get that its opening is menacing as hell. Aboard the commercial spaceship Nostromo, the crew answers a distress signal from a nearby planet. That it’s so natural – they drink coffee, bitch about overtime – only adds to the suspense. Of course, we’re all waiting for the ‘chestburster’, who makes his entrance at around the one-hour mark. Scott filmed the scene in one take, not telling his cast exactly what to expect as John Hurt thrashed about on the table, convulsing in spasms, about to give birth to HR Giger’s infant alien creation. ‘Alien’ had been pitched to the studio as ‘“Jaws” in Space’. Later writer Dan O’Bannon openly admitted, ‘I didn’t steal “Alien” from anybody. I stole it from everybody!’. Horror films have been paying ‘Alien’ the same compliment ever since

    Master Crash I remember watching an interview where the actress that played Lambert was saying that in the chestburster scene she was actually really terrified and screaming because of the amount of blood that was coming out of the body. xD
