way more Helter Skelter.

June 22, 1979 - 2024: 45 years of: Alien.

In space, nobody can hear you die.

It's all business in deep inter-stellar blackness, as the traveling convoy receives a weak mayday-type signal from the LV-426 moon. Contaminated by face-assault and inseminated by force, the eye-less 8 feet tall reptile takes the party apart, one by one, in hopes to conquer new civilizations. Little did they knew, the crew learns they are expendable, under strict programmed orders from their owners, an evil corporation that vows to bring back the perfect organism for studies, back to Earth.

H.R. Giger's gothic morbid tale creations are put to life ...and death. The acid-bleeding mammoth Alien finally gets a host, silently grows in size and exponential strength and is now ready to absorb worldwide pop-culture. Matched by Ridley Scott's pacing and hypnotic suspense, the iconic life-form is the apex of from beyond horror.

Special Order 937.

Instant cinema hit, boosted by the current Star Wars influence, this macabre interpretation of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, brought the Alien brand into the mainstream and would display the dark side of the Space Race. Now part of this massive 80s sci-fi phenomenon, the Alien life-cycle goes from Egg, to Face-Hugger, to Chest-Burster, to fully grown Xenomorph new badass protagonist heroine super-star Sigourney Weaver.

The Rambo-effect was later incorporated into 1986's canon-sequel Aliens ...inadvertently laying the canvas for 1987's Man Vs Monster to-the-death jungle battle: Predator.

"You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you ? The perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility." - Ash
