Really Nice..

Director Ridley Scott talks about recognizing 'his alien' immediately upon seeing the sketches of H.R. Giger, the famous artist behind the nightmarish Alien creature that has haunted our dreams for over twenty years. Additional interviews with Giger, screenwriter Dan O'Bannon and executive producer Ronald Shusett reveal the many challenges involved with bringing this chilling masterpiece to the screen. Another excellent Alien documentary that takes fans back to the day that Alien was released and scared audiences and critics alike but also the sequels too.
