About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1979. Vintage borderless reference photograph of director Ridley Scott with a camera crew on the set of the 1979 film.

One of the greatest science fiction/horror films ever made, a franchise so rich in themes and expandability that it has generated three sequels and two prequels of comparable (or nearly comparable) artistic merit. The infamous "chest bursting" scene paved the way for future horror films to feature gore in more imaginative ways (but also caused viewers to vomit in theaters upon its initial release).

Returning home from a mission, the crew of the spacecraft Nostromo is awakened by the ship's computer to answer a distress signal from a nearby planet. The rescue team discovers a bizarre pod field with pods housing unseen terror. Winner of an Academy Award for Best Effects.

10 x 8 inches. About Fine.

National Film Registry. Ebert II.
