Dan O'Bannon's original draft title was "Star Beast", but he was never happy with this. It was only after re-reading his script, that he noted how many times the word "alien" appeared, and realized that it was a perfect title. It works as a noun and an adjective, and it had never been used before. See more »
(at around 1h 45 mins) Near the end when Ripley is in the shuttle closet putting on the space suit there are 2 axes hanging on the wall. When she puts the helmet on they have vanished. See more »

The title of the movie is slowly created one line at a time at the top of the screen during the opening credits, starting out with the I, then vertical lines in L and E, and the forward slash in A and the slash in N (so it looks like / I I I \), then the ensuing lines of each letter are added slowly one at a time until the title is fully visible.

The Sci-fi channel version (taken from the Widescreen series video transfer) doesn't cut the violence, only the profanity. About 45 seconds is cut from the scene where the Nostromo approches LV-426. Some shots of the crew walking to the derilect are cut. Rated TV14LV and running at 2 hours 30 minutes without commercials. See more »
A Sci-Fi horror - classic Masterpiece the movie that started the terror in space
A Sci-Fi horror - Masterpiece from 70's a real classic horror film with science fiction in space. This is a time and space in the movie. The spaceship Nostromo is beautiful designed with computers. It is beautiful designed, you have beautiful great special effects that hold up till day. Alien stays the best horror movie in the franchise which was brilliantly directed by Ridley Scott. The effect and latex was made to fit Badejo's slender 6-foot-10-inch (208 cm) frame by taking a full-body costume for Alien was great designed great idea. The story is brilliant, the screenplay is brilliant. This is my second favorite "Alien" movie in the franchise I like this movie. James Cameron's Aliens is my number 1 favorite action horror film of all time.
The crew of the spaceship Nostromo answers a distress signal from a desolate planet LV-426 only to discover a deadly life form that breeds within human host. Now the crew members must fight not only for their own survival, but for the survival of all humankind.
There is a Extraterrestrial alien life form on a Nostromo ship who hunts down crew members and kills them one by one on a brutal way. Crew members has to fight for the survival and stop extraterrestrial thing before he destroys our whole world. The designed and building for shuttle and inside of the ship was brilliant to see it. The movie is rated R it is a horror film and the film becomes really scary by time to time and creepy.
Alien (1979) stars: Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm, Yaphet Kotto, Helen Horton and Bolaji Badejo all beautiful worked and acted their beloved characters they are all and believable.
The first movie in "Alien" franchise is one of the greatest science fiction films and it is perfect it is fast paced goes quickly around. It is intelligent, fascinating for the facehugger, chestburster and Alien designs. It is the movie that started the franchise. The movie has mystery and a synthetic man on board who attacks one of his crew members. There is an alien on a different space ship who bring those eggs but no one knew what was inside of them until one of the got a parasite in his face and later becomes cocooned by one of those things. The mythology in this movie about Alien is brilliant.
Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley did wonderful job at acting she was fascinating as the main heroine. I did enjoy Tom Skerritt as Captain Dallas and of course Yaphet Kotto as Parker. From James Bond 007 - Live and Let Die to Alien. There was cat Jones in the movie and the cat was trained and it was likable.
Alien (1979) first movie in the franchise is the best one in the series but my personal favorite horror film in the series will be the James Cameron's Aliens (1986) the sequel to this movie that I love to death an so much. I like the first Alien so much but I love Aliens more.
