Alien redefined the genre of the science fiction thriller and shocked and enthralled a generation of cinema-goers.
Alien follows the crew of the USCSS Nostromo, a mining ship, as they investigate a life form distress signal from a nearby planet. Whilst on the planet they discover a number of mysterious eggs that turn out to be alien lifeforms that dont come in peace.
What follows is a story of survival as the crew retreat to the ship and try to avoid violent deaths by the facehugger/xenomorph creature.
A number of sequels and a wealth of expanded universe literature, movies and fan-fiction followed, making Alien one of the most important science fiction franchises in history.
