Genre - Horror, Sci-Fi
Director - Ridley Scott
Starring - Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, John Hurt, Harry Dean Stanton, Veronica Cartwright, Ian Holm

Alien is a classic blend of horror and sci-fi from talented director Ridley Scott. This is the story of a mining expedition into deep space which encounters an alien, some kind of super-predator with acid for blood; it grows very quickly and likes to eat people. Sigourney Weaver plays the fantastic Ripley who does her best to fight it off. Alien still looks excellent by modern standards and it was released in 1979. Scott hadn't done much before this and he was only fourth or fifth choice for the job, thank god he got it. Alien remains a masterpiece of sci-fi cinema which inspired a glut of cheap rip-offs and imitators.
