Alien, 1979 – ★★★★★

A perfect film. I think of this movie as a classic stage play getting repeated all over the theater world year after year. Only this is a film from 1979 and this cast and crew just made it once, perfectly that one time.

The creature is an important attraction. It is impeccably made through the use of a person in a costume. Clearly tobs of time was spent designing it. They call it “practical effect” when the suited stuntman reaches out his webbed hands to grab and consume a person.

The music sounds great in my surround sound. The acting is highly credible. This film puts me in a good trance every time. It is and will always be a horror film I rate as 10/10. If you haven’t seen it, please do it soon.
