Ridley Scott’s Alien – a groundbreaking mix of science fiction and horror. The Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger designs the disturbing extraterrestrial lifeforms. For the first time in this genre, a female protagonist fights against the evil creatures from space (Ellen Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver).
The film proves to be extremely successful and will spawn three sequels and other spin-offs, including Prometheus (2012).
