The ORIGINAL, from director Ridley Scott, about a spaceship stalked by an alien creature with a serious attitude. It’s the perfect blend of science fiction and horror (“In space no one can hear you scream”). Sigourney Weaver, in a star-making role, plays Lieutenant Ripley: tough as nails and with a healthy skepticism about taking extraterrestrial remains back to earth. (“This thing bled acid. Who knows what it's gonna do when it's dead.”)
