Spokesman at Press Conference:
Ladies and gentlemen of the press: As you know, the first attempt to send a spaceship to the planet Mars was made six months ago. We knew that that ship, the Challenge 141, had reached its destination, but that's all we knew. Teleradio communication with Mars ceased immediately and we were forced to assume that the ship and crew had been lost.

When you first watch "Alien", you soon realize it is a remake of this movie, and you know how to get rid of the monster. But if you've never seen either movie, you probably would be as much on the ropes as the characters. In both cases, a space crew happens upon a hostile life form which infiltrates their space ship. No longer a haven from space, the astronauts try every means to kill the invader and save their lives (because the monster is killing them at will), and nothing seems to work. The basic difference is, of course, the special effects, which are paramount in the "Alien" movies, but nondescript in this movie. The robot and other automated features provided by the "company", seems to be actually at fault for all the carnage in "Alien." In "It!", the creature pretty well does it all on his own. Minor difference at best, because both movies are about thrills and adventure, and both succeed. An advantage of black and white film representation with little or no special effects is that it doesn't have to prove as much, and there is no exorbitant information for the viewer. It's more of a dream state where the information provided is the information needed. In the modern colorful world, it is too much for a viewer to fend off extra information in most movies. There again, both "Alien" and "It" capture the essence of what they try to achieve. And if you like one, I'm sure you'll like the other.
