SCREENING

Alien

Ongoing

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Ridley Scott. 1979 (2003 Director’s Cut), 116 mins. 35mm. With Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm, Yaphet Kotto. Ridley Scott’s elegant creep-show, a gut-wrenching, atmospheric blend of horror and sci-fi, transported the haunted-house genre to outer space. After a particularly nasty foreign agent smuggles itself—in famously gruesome fashion—onto a mining ship, the crew is picked off one by one. A gothic for the ages, thanks to the pitch-black widescreen compositions, Carlo Rambaldi’s iconic creature design, and Weaver’s star-making performance as Ripley.
