Alien

Top 10 Scary Movies

One of the grotesque "facehuggers" from the movie "Alien"


Alien (1979)

Though it spawned several action-packed sequels (those face-hugging aliens really can breed), what makes the original, Ridley Scott-directed film effective is the atmosphere of claustrophobic horror. It's true that in space, no one can hear you scream; there's also nowhere to run. Suffocating blackness outside, a huge, acidic-blooded monster inside ... these are not good odds. Watching Sigourney Weaver's Ripley beat them, even as the rest of her crew is decimated, never ceases to thrill, terrify, and make one view the starry sky just a little more warily.
