Thanks to “Prometheus” I remembered one of the greatest Sci-Fi thrillers of all time, “Alien”. Directed by Ridley Scott, starring Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, John Hurt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto. After you watched this, I would also recommend “Aliens” the continuation, directed by James Cameron. It’s nearly perfect in every way, storyline, characters, menacing threat, suspense, action, music, emotion, etc…both are with good reasons classics.
The crew of the deep space mining ship Nostromo are awaken from hypersleep to investigate a strange signal from a nearby planet. While investigating the signal, they discover it was intended as a warning, and not an SOS.
