I saw this movie when it first came out in ’79. The theatre’s sound system was so loud that, by the time the film was over, my ears were buzzing as if I had just attended a rock concert. I mean, I could feel my whole body vibrating during the space shots of the Nostromo. And don’t get me started on the ear-splitting explosion of the ship at the end of the film (Oups! Spoiler alert!).
Needless to say, this classic creature feature has one of my favorite movie posters of all time, and an amazing tag line to boot.
