An "alien" movie that was scary for me....The Fourth Kind. Even though I knew that the human cases were bogus, the film played upon the idea about "what if" the aliens that were mentioned by our ancient ancestors returned. And these beings were aggressive and demon-like. The realism of people freaking-out from encountering these unearthly beings would be pretty close to what would happen if we really knew that these beings had diabolic intentions.
What is loosely based on reality is far more frightening then any fictional creation from Hollywood.
A "lame" alien film. Well there are quite a few to choose from, so I'll pick one..........The Pod People (1983). A very boring "alien" flick.
There is only one alien scene which has ever freaked me out a bit; the 'head' spider in John Carpenter's The Thing. I can watch horror movies without blinking an eye but that scene still gets me a bit.
I went to see 'Alien' when it first came out, I thought that 'Alien' was bloody terrifying. I still think it's the scariest. Although the critter from 'The Thing' (the Kurt Russel version) and the 'Predator' are pretty scary too.
When it comes to my "Favourite" alien, it has to be the new enhanced 'Ripley' from 'Alien Resurrection'. Cute, powerful, lightning reflexes, and with concentrated acid for blood. Wow!
I'm surprised we haven't seen the 'The Chronicles of the new Ripley'. Very surprised indeed.
