| More about Alien: The Director's Cut|
Sunday November 2, 2003
Before 1979 there had been SF-horror movies, but none on such a scale or as ferocious as Ridley Scott's Alien, and in this new 'Director's Cut' it's as effective as ever. Seeing it is like picking up an old jack-in-the-box and being punched in the face just as hard as before. Alien is Agatha Christie's Ten Little Niggers (aka And Then There Were None) in space, combined with The Thing From Another World and garnished by Joseph Conrad.
