“Critic’s pick! Scott’s sexually radical, chest-bursting horror landmark features H.R. Giger’s obscenely phallic beastie stalking a remarkably tony cast, including Ian Holm, John Hurt, and Sigourney ‘Hell, I’ll battle this thing in my skivvies’ Weaver. Forget the vastly overrated Blade Runner; this is Scott’s best film, period.” – Time Out New York
