Ridley Scott’s heart-stopping, skin-crawling sci-fi masterpiece returns to the screens, still terrifying after 40 years. Sigourney Weaver gives a career-making performance as Ripley, a young woman part of the crew on board the Nostromo, a mining starship trudging home through the cosmos when after making an SOS stop to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel, they unwittingly pick up an unwanted guest – forcing Ripley to fight for survival as her crewmates are viciously picked off one by one. Brilliantly shot, edited and performed, with unforgettable set-pieces, it’s a lethal, paranoid, cold-blooded sci-fi classic and must be seen on the big screen.
