One of cinema's all-time sci-fi horror classics, Ridley Scott's film stars Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt and Ian Holm as the crew of the Nostromo, a deep-space tow-craft that unluckily intercepts a distress call from a deserted planet.
On the planet, they find a crashed spaceship and some strange eggs. And then John Hurt fatefully leans over one...
Spellbinding, edge-of-seat horror follows as the alien finds its way onboard the tow-craft, and begins to hunt down the crew.
