Awsome documentary
10 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I bought the Alien Legacy five video pack which included all the Alien films; Alien, Aliens - Special Edition, Alien 3, and Alien Ressurrection. The pack also included the documentary The Alien Legacy. It's a real treat for Alien fans and goes deep into the making of the original Alien. Has interviews and deleted scenes.
