    • Synopsis
    • Even forty years after its release, this brilliant collaboration between screenwriter Dan O’Bannon, biomechanical surrealist H. R. Giger and visionary director Ridley Scott remains just as stunning as in 1979, when it redefined the science-fiction genre. The creature, who arrives out of the depths of space, is no civilized extraterrestrial seeking to make contact with the human race; it is the embodiment of pure evil, as intelligent as it is remorseless. This visually captivating film works with our primal fear of the unknown and unseen amid the claustrophobic corridors of the spaceship Nostromo, where the mismatched crew must engage in an unequal struggle for survival – a struggle nobody will ever know about. Because in space, no one can hear you scream.
