In space no one can hear you scream. Awakened from hypersleep by a distress signal, the crew of the space tug Nostromo lands on planet LV-426 to find a derelict alien ship, and unwittingly brings back a nasty stowaway. Ridley Scott's sci-fi version of an English country house mystery — the crew suspects one another as their numbers keep dwindling — mutates into all-out horror as it nears its finale, and shrewdly hides its iconic, H. R. Giger-designed creature from view until the big reveal. The film features John Hurt, Yaphet Kotto, Veronica Cartwright, Tom Skerritt, Ian Holm, Harry Dean Stanton and a star-making performance by Sigourney Weaver, "the most courageous and resourceful heroine seen on screen in years." – Gary Arnold, The Washington Post. DIR Ridley Scott; SCR Dan O'Bannon, Ronald Shusett; PROD Gordon Carroll, David Giler, Walter Hill. U.S./UK, 1979, color, 117 min. RATED R
