Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Director: Ridley Scott
Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Ian Holm, Veronica Cartwright, Yaphet Kotto, John Hurt, Harry Dean Stanton

A commercial spaceship Nostromo and its crew of seven unwittingly pick up a deadly alien life form in this claustrophobic horror film. Ridley Scott's highly influential science fiction classic delivers a perfect fusion of atmosphere, suspense, and design, and it not only spawned several sequels (Aliens, Alien³, and Alien Resurrection), prequels (Prometheus), and spin-offs, but also established the formula for dozens or second rate imitations.
