4.5 Alien.... blayboy | 28/03/2013 | See all blayboy's reviews (447) Alien proves that a successful Sci-Fi or Horror doesnt need to be about full on action, CGI effects or gore. Alien builds up the suspense. The ships crew are average people that seem very Human. HR Gigers sets are also well worked and iconic. As expected some scenes look a little dated but Alien will have you on the edge of your seat throughout. Classic!
