Alien, American movie (1979)

Although the official part of my science fiction and horror theme month might be over (the requested reviews), the month it self definitely isn’t yet. And this is well, not a real request, but more something that came up in a conversation. I was talking to Lina the other day (No,not going to be doing a promo here again, you already all know how awesome she is. And if you don’t just press on the link and go follow her already. Whoops…still did a promo, sorry!) and at one point the conversation came to science fiction films. And how cool the movie that I am about to do a review for still is even after so many years. So, seeing as this is one of my all time favorites, and I was planning on writing this one anyway at some point, I figured I might as well do it now. And Lina wanted me to write this too, so there is that. It was the late 70’s when this film came out, and remember this was around the time when the first Star Wars movie had become an overnight success. Science fiction was a very hot property to have and movie studios had certainly discovered that. But audiences just weren’t prepared for the terrifying vision that director Ridley Scott had on this genre. In space no one might hear you scream….but in the movietheatres everyone could hear you scream!

I know some people like to cover their eyes when going to sleep. This is a bit extreme though…..

In the darkness of space a large spaceship slowly comes into view. The camera moves inside the craft where lights and machinery is being turned on by the ship’s computer. Not only the ship is coming alive though, but also it’s human crew, that is being awakened from their cryosleep. The ship is called the Nostromo, and after having been in space for a very long time, it’s crew that includes Captain Dallas and Warrant Officer Ripley, were looking forward to finally heading back to Earth. But unfortunately they are not anywhere near their homeplanet. A transmission of some kind, maybe even a distress signal, has been picked up from the nearby planet designated LV-426. As per their company’s policy they are obligated to investigate any unknown signals. Using a shuttlecraft they descent towards the surface of the planet. When they finally make it to the ground a small team, under the command of captain Dallas, is leaving the shuttle behind to find out where the signal originated from. Meanwhile Ripley stays on board the ship trying to decipher the transmission. When she finally manages to uncover at least a part of it, she finds out it was not a distress signal, but a warning. However, that warning has probably come to late. For what they find on the desolate planet is something that has come straight out of the darkest pits of hell itself….

Heeeeeerreeeee’s……Johny!!! Erm…no wait….

It doesn’t matter that this film is now almost 40 years old. Because it is still every bit as terrifying as when this was first released all those years ago. What we have here is a movie that might very well be one of the most claustrophobic horror films ever made. Right from the very start of the movie, when the letters of the word Alien begin to slowly make an appearance, the atmosphere for this film is pretty much set. It is a dark film, both in tone, but also in subject matter. One of the most memorable sequences ever created for film, and maybe even one of the most horrifying ones, is where the alien’s first form emerges in all it’s bloody glory on the screen. The reactions that you see at that point from the terrified cast were real. Ridley Scott never told them exactly what would happen at that scene when they filmed it. And even if he would have told them, I think they would still all have been shocked at the way it looked. Even today it is still horrible. The only reason I’m not going into any more details is because I don’t want to give away spoilers in case you might have not seen this one yet.

In the future amusement park attractions have certainly come a long way.

The alien itself, designed by H.R.Giger, an artist from Switzerland that has sadly passed away, is a vision that seems to have been born straight out of the mind of a complete madman. It’s dark and sleek form, that can even be called very sexual in a disturbing kind of way, is one of the best movie monsters ever created. Director Ridley Scott has done a great job in not showing the monster right away, but just taking his time, building up to the reveal. It works perfectly. But when talking about Alien, it is not enough to only mention the cool set designs, the terrifying creature and terrific special effects. No…there is one other element that makes this film so great, and that is actress Sigourney Weaver. In her role as Ripley she created the most iconic female character to ever make an appearance in a science fiction movie. She is totally bad ass. Ripley is not only a strong figurehead for women all over the world, she is a character that personifies the word girlpower. Yes she is scared, who wouldn’t be when faced with such a terrifying creature. But she doesn’t cower in a corner: she takes the lead, and does something about it. And by doing that she more than gives the men in this film a run for their money.

I’ve got some thinking to do here. Will I go shopping tomorrow? Or kick some aliens behind?

The rest of the cast of characters in this film also do a great job in their respective roles, especially actor Ian Holm who plays the sinister character of Ash. And yes, trust me when I say that he becomes very sinister indeed. I could go on talking about this film all day. Don’t worry I won’t be doing that as this review is already getting pretty long. Alien is simply one of those rare films that, just like the Xenomorph itself, is simply the perfect organism. It’s a timeless film, that doesn’t feel dated even for a single second. Okay, maybe the spaceship scenes don’t look as great anymore as they did back in the days. But seriously I’m really nitpicking now. Well..and now there is a question that needs to be answered, right Karandi? Is this film better than it’s sequel? Sorry…I’m not going to answer that one just yet. I will though….soon…in the review for Aliens that will be coming up somewhere next week (yes…I am evil that way). As for this film: see it! That’s pretty much all I can say about it. It is one of the most powerful science fiction horrormovies ever made, and I absolutely love it!

I give Alien a 10 out of 10 score.

    1. It’s a movie that probably will never get old. It’s a terrific movie franchise. The direcor’s cut was cool too! But then again, I am a fan of all things Alien. It’s pretty much timeless..and probably will remain that way for many more years to come 😊😊😊

    1. Totally agree. This is a film that definitely won’t get made again in our lifetime but boy was it awesome! Although I am in the minority here, I quote liked Alien Covenant too. A lot of people hated it, but I had a good time with it.
      Lol..well I just saw a comment appear from someone who hasn’t seen this one yet. But to be fair…I have definitely not seen my fair share of classic films either: like for instance Pulp Fiction 😊

  1. I have good memories of watching this as a kid (and getting scared out of my wits). It’s a classic and very influential–sometimes its impact is neglected because of all of its clones and remakes! The special effects still look great (except the alien itself looks a little costumey). I’m motivated to go back and watch it now–thanks for the review!

  5. Excellent review. You are right in that it doesn’t matter that this film is now as old as it is. This film is every bit as affective now as it ever has been (given it was an old movie when I saw it the first time and I completely fell in love with it). I definitely love how real and everyday space travel feels in this movie with the ship not being some gleaming piece of new technology but having a cramped and lived in kind of feel. Plus the horror element definitely works. Really looking forward to your thoughts on Aliens.

    1. Thanks so much, I’m glad you enjoyed the read 😊 Well, exactly: the fun thing is I had not seen this in quite a while, and even though I know pretty much exactly what is going to happen, I still got totally drawn into it again. It was just genuinely frightening, tense and claustrophobic. But so incredibly well made and a film that will always be a timeless classic. And you are so right, every little detail makes sense. The lived in and old look of the ship, stuff like that: it just works for this movie.
      I’m hoping to see Aliens this week: and post the review for it hopefully in the upcoming weekend (have a bit of busy week ahead of me with a couple of later shifts), but I’m sure I can squeeze it in somewhere 😊😊

  6. More than excellent !! ❤ This review sums up everything I think about Alien. It's such an iconic movie and thanks to it, I still greatly enjoy the comics hihi. The Alien was so symbolic, terrifying in its own way and the distubring art behind it make it even more fascinating :O BUT YOURE RIGHT. RIPLEY IS EVERYTHING. She's a strong female lead and she continues to be, I'm happy they kept her!

I also love Alien, I have read a lot of the books as well as the comic books from Dark Horse (which are awesome by the way), but the movies will always rank amongst the best science fiction films ever. You are quite right about the disturbing art. That to me is one of the scariest parts of the film…the sets and the way the alien looks.
      And Ripley? She is just in a class of her own. She was great in this and I would love to see her reprise her role someday 😊

  17. There are so many things to love about this film.
    I think one thing that really helps is the fact that so much was done through practical effects, which, in my opinion, often age much better than digital.
    I also love how this story really plays with space. The ship itself is a kind of “haunted house”, with this ghoulish creature appearing and disappearing at will.
    And so many regions are dark, full of steam or water, and in some cases very cramped. The alien itself is amazing, but in many ways its the environment that really maintains the atmosphere.
    Similar to Event Horizon and John Carpenter’s Thing in that regard.

    I also read a really interesting piece on how, much like vampires create a dark version of sexuality, the Alien creates a dark version of pregnancy.
    It forces the victim to become a host, and when it’s ready, the creature is baptized in blood, killing it’s “parent” as it emerges.

    Part of what I think is really interesting when comparing Alien to Aliens (Alien 2), is how they are both strong in very different ways.
    In the original, the Alien is very much a supernatural creature, a thorough mystery. At no point in the film does the creature show any sign of being injured, only annoyed or driven back. There’s a very real question of whether this creature can be killed.
    In the second one, there’s a pack of them, and while still fearsome, individually they can be killed.
    In that regard I feel that where the first is pure and beautiful suspense horror, the second veers rather sharply into action territory.
    Where the fear of the first film was rooted in “is it possible to stop this creature”, the second one is much more rooted in “will it cost too much (in weapons, and personnel) to stop these creatures”.

    1. This was such a great comment, and I could not agree more. The one thing that I have always loved is how the ship in this film is almost like an extra character. It is not this sleek vessel that you sometimes see in other science fiction movies. It’s a place that has been lived in. And everything just works and is so well thought out. Like the self destruct mechanism that Ripley has to activate. I love the way how that is put together.
      Yes…it certainly has a lot to do with the cycle of birth and rebirth. I am a huge alien fan and have a lot of books on the making of these film, and Ridley himself said that as well. I really has to do a lot with that theme.
      It’s hard to compare the two movies, as both are quite different in style as you say. I do have a favorite though…as to which one that is…I’m going to hold on that answer until the weekend where I hope to do my review for Aliens 😊😊

  20. I think science fiction has a large role to play in bringing new realms to cinema. Not just cinema but visual and entertainment technology. Being an electronics and communication student I have had my fair share of studying the kind of advances we have had maybe not in these fields specifically, but a lot in geberal. I think movies and it’s highly imaginative on-screen demands have brought large advancements onto CGI, image processing, and so many more things. And science fiction has a huge role in it. Again, I an going to watch this as well. Your sci-fi horror movie month has been really good! I have heard of some wonderful films that I wouldn’t have heard of otherwise. So thank you Michel ! And great job friend! You did an “adipoli” job. If you are wondering what that means, in my native language that means “awesome”. I think some feelings are best expressed in our native tongue , more than anything else!

    1. Science fiction is a highly enjoyable and in my opinion very underrated genre. There are so many goof films that can be found in this genre but are sometimes dismissed just because it sci-fi.
      I agree: some of the advancements in technology would probably not even have been discovered without these films.
      As for Alien..it is really, really good. Again a movie that I would not recommend seeing on your own, as this one really is very scary and truly frightening.
      Aww…and thanks so much, it really makes me smile that you enjoyed this them month so much😊😊 And of course that last comment made me blush again..but that was probably to be expected lol 😂
      Great though…it’s a word I am going to remember: and just so you know: I think you are superlief (which is Dutch for very sweet). Thanks for another wonderful comment 😊😊).

    1. It definitely was. A true horror classic..but…the sequel (at least in my opinion and truly a very rare occasion) was even better. Don’t know if you have seen that one…but if you haven’t it’s really worth a watch. I posted my review for that one yesterday 😀
