Ridley Scott's 1979 seminal sci-fi hit Alien is a true masterclass in building suspense. Even though the titular beast is hardly seen on-screen at all, its frightening presence haunts the viewer mercilessly.

Watching the Alien stalk the crew on board the Nostromo was such a nail-biting experience, I feel like the stress of it took years off my lifetime! The cast themselves certainly seem to have aged since the movie first hit screens almost 36 years ago, but just how different do they look now?

You might be shocked to find out, but just remember: in Moviepilot no one can hear you scream!
