Designed by the beautifully warped mind of H.R. Giger, this creature and others like the “face hugger” and the “chest burster” would haunt fans for years as a reoccurring, unstoppable horror in subsequent films. The film was rounded out with the perfectly moody score composed by Jerry Goldsmith.
This perfect storm of unbridled horror and sci-fi perfection was completed with the perfect casting of Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt,Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto. Each member served their purpose in the grand scheme of this suspenseful tale and left their mark in film history as the ill-fated crew that didn’t stand a chance. ' DON THOMPSON - POSTER POSSE
