A blue-collar spaceship picks up an odd signal. Upon investigation, the crew finds a wrecked alien ship and a sea of slimy eggs. After the eye-opening hatching of one of the little fellas, and they decide to get the hell out of Dodge. But it is far too late.
Alien is a masterful melding of sci-fi and horror. The alien is as grotesque as it is intimidating and one of the best-designed creatures ever (kudos to H.R. Giger). The rest of the designs are equally impressive. Combine all of this with Ridley Scott’s penchant for visual storytelling, and you have a film that changed both sci-fi and horror (for the better).
Final report. Alien is still a harrowing experience and a voyage to space that all cultists must endure. This is your Cult Caretakers, signing off.
