Absolutely incredible. Deep space has never been more terrifying, and for a film that is now 35 years old it hasn't aged a bit, it's atmosphere is positively pulping with dread and the special effects and set designs are so realistic and believable, you'd think you were in space. Ridley Scott is a masterful director, and this is high masterpiece, it still is the benchmark for sci-fi/horror, and also a showcase for the talent that is the beautiful Sigourney Weaver. Ripley is the ultimate female hero, and to this day no one has surpassed her, not even The Bride from Kill Bill nor Alice or Selene from Underworld and Resident Evil, and I love those films and lead characters. Alien is simply unmissable, you can't go wrong.
