Good movie worth watching
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned
Very good film
This version is the 2 disc version which has one disc which has many features for the film. They can be played separately or all together. Over two hours of features. The main disc has the 1979 version and the Directors Cut. The latter is a about a minute shorter although it has never-before seen footage. However, I cannot really tell which is the new footage that has been added. A good film that you can "escape" into.
Classic Sci Fi Horror, not to be missed!
As everyone knows, the only thing guaranteed to survive is a cat... Classic sci-fi horror. Alien is the ultimate blending of the two genres. The suspense will get you every time, and a film like this never becomes dated as it doesn't totally rely on special effects to get the story across... The characters are believable, a real insight into the reactions of humanity when faced with the ultimate alien... Watch it with the lights out and a cat on your lap, cats are a good indicator as to whether or not there's an alien in the house...
one of the best horror films of all time
Made in 1979 yet looks like it was made this year, great story line and acting bought it for the kids , watched it and it was like I`d never seen it before , and completely unsuitable for young kids.
directors cut always good to watch plus the many extras many addaed scenes not in original and some commentary from Carpenter
