“Although it has often been described as being a haunted-house movie set in space, Alien also has a profoundly existentialist undertow that makes it feel like a Film Noir — the other genre to feature a slithery, sexualized monster as its classic villain. From the first minutes of the film, as cinematographer Derek Vanlint’s camera crawls through the empty corridors, the mood of dread and confinement is almost unbearable. Watching these scenes on the big screen I recognize how few horror movies I’ve seen before or since that ever manage to capture such a tangible feeling of menace.”
Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
