In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma.

One of the finest films of its era. Relentless atmosphere and suspense doesn't let up until the very end. Sigourney Weaver gives one of her best performances.
Perfect blend of sci-fi and horror that keeps you spellbound.November 12th, 2013 · Details1 Thank ·
