I stayed perfectly still after they chased me into the air vent. I hadn’t heard anything for several minutes. Surely they’d left by now. Crawling out of my hiding spot, I found myself face to face with one of my pursuers. He hadn’t moved. He started shouting, but he remained locked in place, unable to move at all. …
The movie Aliens scared me almost as much as the first film back when I was a kid. Alien Vs. Predator wasn’t so bad as I was much older and immune to fear, at least until Alien: Isolation proved otherwise. Now all three are digital pinball tables. These I can handle.
Retro tech, abandoned coffee cups, unmade beds, monitors saying “LOST CONTACT” in all caps. Yep, that’s a deserted Alien space station, alright.
It’s weird, for all its influence in both games and film, not that many people cosplay as characters from the Alien series. So it’s awesome seeing this ver1sa, not just because it’s OG 1979 Ripley, but because it’s so good.
How I’ve missed you, Bo’ Rai Cho. Alien, Leatherface, Triborg—those guys want to kill me. You just want to get drunk, throw up on me and maybe fart in my face. It’s like they made my older brother a Mortal Kombat character.
When Ridley Scott’s Prometheus hit theaters, it was polarizing for a bunch of reasons. Some of the biggest were its connections to Alien, which created more questions than they answered.

What makes a living weapon? Well, first of all, living, obviously. But like normal weapons, living weapons are designed solely to hurt and kill others. They aren’t soldiers, who can take a variety of orders, or assassins, who may choose to kill in secret. Living weapons use their powers for one reason: destroying…
One of the coolest things about Alien: Isolation was how thoroughly it put players into the quaking space-boots of its protagonist Amanda Ripley. There was a button for re-focusing her eyes!
Last week the news emerged that director Neill Blomkamp’s recently confirmed Alien movie will wipe away the series’ less celebrated sequels and will pick up the story of Ellen Ripley from James Cameron’s Aliens. “I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens,” Blomkamp said.
From the moment that District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp released his concept art for a possible Alien movie, we've been salivating over the possibility of a Blomkamp-directed Alien film. But after saying that he wasn't "ready" to make it, Blomkamp has apparently confirmed it's his next project.
What happens when Alien: Isolation and Team Fortress 2 mix? You get this nicely done short film by MaGGoT4th, in which an Alien turns TF2's colorful cast into quivering mush puddles. Make sure to stick around for the twist ending.
Guess what? Neill Blomkamp was working on a secret Alien project that included Sigourney Weaver reuniting with Corporal Hicks, and the concept art is gorgeous. But now it's dead, or was never going to be made in the first place, and I'm just going to scream "PROMETHEUS" into a pillow all day until I pass out from…
This might just be the ultimate faux-nostalgia grab ever. Gentle Giant Have Jumbo-sized Funko's retro Kenner-style Alien action figure based on the scrapped toy from the movie's release - and then gold plated it to celebrate the movie's 35th Anniversary. Fancy!
