Film Description:

The time is the future. Seven astronauts are returning to Earth in their battered commercial starship for some well-earned leave. When responding to a mysterious distress call, they become the victims of a galactic creature of unspeakable horror. Their desperate attempts to combat the alien and escape make for a story you could never imagine in your wildest dreams – or nightmares. Starring Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt and John Hurt, Alien is one of the most suspenseful and powerful science fiction films of all time. (Ridley Scott, 1979, R, 116 min.)
