      Alien is the scariest movie I've ever seen, hands down.

      When I saw it in the theater, there were scenes where I could not watch it -- I had to cover my eyes. Even when it was on TV, I still did that years later. (Specifically, the scene where Dallas is crawling through the ducts and the alien attacks.)

      What made Alien so different from previous monster movies is the alien was so fast. Before Alien filmakers thought it heightened the suspense to show the monster slowly approaching the victims. Ridley Scott

        In the Alien franchise, only one character matters. It is big, black and has acid for blood.

        There is no need to look for a way to bring Ripley into it, especially if it involves time travel, memory loss, or cloning again.

        • I don't know if you have seen any movies from the Alien franchise, but they found a way to get Ripley into everything but the "versus" movies. They'll find a way to get her in the prequel. Just look for George Lucas' name to be involved somehow and you'll know they're trying.

        The Nostromo was diverted to the planet where they found the Xenomorph because someone in the company knew it was there. How they knew has not been explained in the films, to date. Presumably there was some prior contact that was covered up. The AvP series showed how the company could know that the aliens existed, but no reason to know where they could be found.

Presumably there was some prior contact that was covered up. The AvP series showed how the company could know that the aliens existed, but no reason to know where they could be found.

          There are few options:

          One: the company didn't know about the alien beacon in advance, and the whole android with recovery orders and crew expendable stuff was just standing standard procedure, in case they got lucky. Its plausible I think, but means there can be no prequel.

          Two: The company knew the aliens existed by previously merely detecting/analyzing the beacon, then they might divert the Nostromo with the intention of picking whatever they find up. It would make sense, even to the subterfuge of planting Ash with extra orders to recover it, and diverting the ship so it picks up the beacon forcing the crew to respond (per their contract to respond to distress calls) allowing the company to get a 'free expedition' out the crew.

          That all works, but would make a boring prequel movie. Some remote station or passing ship detect an alien beacon, and don't investigate it.

          Three: The company knew the aliens existed, previously investigated, and had already lost an expedition trying to recover it, perhaps they got some reports and know something about the aliens, perhaps they got nothing at all... the expedition just vanished without a trace. Either way it doesn't follow that they'd divert a fully loaded and ridiculously expensive refinery ship to the planet for a 2nd attempt.

          That would be like Spain deliberately diverting a fully loaded treasure ship to investigate a new island where a previous expedition had already been lost. I just don't see it happening. The Nostromo was ridiculously valuable; they might gamble it on it on an expedition where no real exceptional risks could be assessed, but it just doesn't make sense to gamble an expensive treasure ship, with an unqualified crew -- if they already knew that they'd lost an expedition.

      There is a few Darkhorse comics that touch on this and actually I was wondering if they predate aliens.

      Basically, humans get stranded on a planet full of Xenomorphs and at the last moment when they are surrounded by a sea of Aliens, one of the pilots show up with this gun that basically vaporizes all of of the Xenomorphs.

      They try to thank the pilot but being the emotionless being that it is, it just floated by to the ship without saying a word.

        The action/sci-fi (syfy?WTF?!) movie that James Cameron created, I have to admit, is about my favorite sci-fi movie of all time, it was non-stop, suspenseful, but action packed... they couldn't go with all suspense because we all already knew what was coming, just not in what quantity... but the original movie was horror/sci-fi at its finest (especially given the time it was created). I mean, if they remade that movie with today's special effects, it'd be amazing... but only the youth that hadn't seen the series would really get the full scare factor out of it. The thing is, people of the 70's didn't have aliens popping out of their neighbor's chests everyday, so when they saw that movie, it was disturbing... then the monster grew up quick and started killing old school... it was like when Doom 3 first came out and even though it was just a game, I'd jump when things popped out because i wasn't quite sure what would lurk around the next corner. By the time Aliens came out, chest popping aliens were the norm, so they had to make it an action flick to keep the interest going. Alien was a masterpiece, because it was horror defined. It wasn't some crazy person hacking people up, it was something totally unknown, moving around an environment we weren't familiar with, in a location where no help could be found. Aliens was a masterpiece, because it took that same mix, threw in space marines (who started out with the general attitude military units in space always have in movies) and then the situation deteriorated rapidly. There was still suspense, but there was also a lot of plot and character development. Shoot, they barely show Frost getting waxed, and I already missed him... and the sarge! I have a feeling a prequel may try to explain why the Nostromo was sent to LV-426 in the first place.

        They're almost two entirely different genres...

        I love both movies, but comparing them just isn't fair.

        Alien is tense, claustrophobic, suspenseful... You've got a single creature stalking and killing the crew of the ship, one by one. It's more of a traditional stalker/slasher movie in that respect.

        Aliens is fast-paced, action-filled, loud, intense... Piles of aliens popping out of corners, getting mowed down, ripping people apart. Despite the fact that some of it is downright terrifying, it's more of an action movie than a horror film.

I would imagine he would concentrate on the visual effects.

    This story should make sense because the original story directly implied prior knowledge of the Alien organism prior to its "discovery" in the movie--although why anyone thought it needed "protecting" is beyond me. It always seemed quite capable of protecting itself.

    Best alien joke: The cartoon of the Imperial Storm Trooper with a face-grabber on its face saying, "I hate being the one to have to walk Lord Darth Vader's pet."

    And yes, after seeing the original Alien in an evening movie showing without knowing what it was really about ahead of time, I left the bathroom light on that night afterwards just in case. I'm sure I wasn't the only one.

    While his style is well-known, there is possibly still something more to ask of him that would tie the movies together outside of any simple plotline.

      If he could be commissioned for something new, using some of the erotic or torture pieces as a haunting/dream-like "infection" plot device, he might be able to really breath some new visual life into the series.

      Giger was given ample room to express himself in the original, but sadly was not credited as much as he should have been for the derivative works of the monsters. This could be a great way to welcome him back, although I've read that he can be a bit eccentric to work with (The Ghost Train ordeal).

    Can't the franchise just die after the horrible efforts done by Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Alien Resurrection and David Fincher's Aliens 3? I think these films ruined Aliens forever. And After the first sequel the direction and feel of the franchise went in a massively different direction from Ridley Scott's version.

    James Cameron's Aliens was fun but Ridley Scott's Alien has so much atmosphere to it. But Ridley Scott's version, while more artistic and interesting was not the box office smash that Aliens was.

    Perhaps there is some way to recover the franchise, but I suspect your average movie-goer will be pissed at Scott's attempts at a prequel because it will likely not be anything like a film done by James Cameron, which is what people have come to expect from Aliens.

    The first movie was about a single alien, the second was about about many aliens. If this is a prequel, it will have to be about the egg of that first alien before it hatched.

    "I dunno, man, but it looks pretty strange."

  • i have an inside track on the ideas they are basing the prequel on, and it harkens back to classic themes in shockingly new and original ways, not at all feeling like some high school sophomore clicked around a bit on wikipedia and retread tired, stale ideas

    for example, the story of the alien in the prequel will revolve around important rules that one should never break, which of course get inevitably broken:

    1. don't get the alien wet, or it immediately reproduces more of its kind asexually by budding from its back
    3. keep the alien away from bright lights... especially sunlight. this will kill it
    4. and don't ever feed the alien after midnight

    i think this is a brilliant and entirely original idea

    furthermore, the movie will start with a crashed ship full of religious pilgrims, a stowaway, a dangerous criminal, etc. the alien hunts them all down relentlessly one by one whenever the planet falls into eclipse and darkness. but the fearless criminal has special surgically altered eyes that allows him to see in pitch black, so he turns the tables and hunts the alien instead

    again, a brilliant and entirely original idea from hollywood for the alien prequel!

          You know, I loved the first two movies, and would have liked the series to progress as it seemed it should - 3 would have the Alien actually brought back to a space station around Earth, then 4 could be them getting TO Earth.

          But the point I wanted to make is that the next sequel should have someone stumble on the Alien's home planet - where they originally are from. Think about it - they are communal, live in a colony and can build a new one with a single individual, like some of our insects. They cooperate, can withstand very hostile environments. They have eggs that can do the same and lie dormant for long periods of time. They have lightning speed, hide really well, and have acid for blood.

          Now think about the world that could produce such a creature, with all those defenses. The Aliens.... are not even CLOSE to the top of the food chain. Imagine what horrors you would find on the world that produced them....

          THAT's the movie I want to see.
