Anyone who knows me knows how much I love 80’s horror movies. Now I know this came out in ’79 but I knew it was right up my alley. Its a movie I always needed to watch but have been really wanting to watch it as I am very excited for Alien: Covenant.
This movie is a classic for a reason. This movie is a benchmark of the horror genre, and for this reason, I already knew a lot of what would happen and I had already seen some scenes. Unsurprisingly, this didn’t take anything away from the movie. The chest-burster scene was just as great as any other time I’ve seen it, and the scene in the air ducts was just as tense as it could have possibly been. The big jump scare in the ducts still got a big jump out of me even though I knew it was about to happen.
There really isn’t a whole lot to say about this movie that hasn’t already been said. Its wonderful, everything looks wonderful, and it’ll scare the pants off of you.
I give Alien an easy 9/10.
