Air Force William Uhouse And on the level that was most important to the writers and director, it's about sex, and reproduction by non-consensual means.
And it's about this happening to a man. Film analyst Lina Badley has written that the Alien's design, with strong Freudian sexual undertones, multiple phallic symbols, and overall feminine figure, provides an androgynous image conforming to archetypal mappings and imageries in horror films that often redraw gender lines.
I said 'That's how I'm going to attack the audience; I'm going to attack them sexually. And I'm not going to go after the women in the audience, I'm going to attack the men.
I am going to put in every image I can think of to make the men in the audience cross their legs. Homosexual oral rape, birth.
The thing lays its eggs down your throat, the whole number. Alien 's roots in earlier works of fiction have been analyzed and acknowledged extensively by critics.
The film has been said to have much in common with B movies such as The Thing from Another World ,   Creature from the Black Lagoon ,  It! The Terror from Beyond Space ,   Night of the Blood Beast ,  and Queen of Blood ,  as well as its fellow s horror films Jaws and Halloween Several critics have suggested that the film was inspired by Italian filmmaker Mario Bava 's cult classic Planet of the Vampires , in both narrative details and visual design.
Writer David McIntee has also noted similarities to the Doctor Who serial The Ark in Space , in which an insectoid queen alien lays larvae inside humans which later eat their way out, a life cycle inspired by that of the ichneumon wasp.
Lovecraft 's At the Mountains of Madness , "not in storyline, but in dread-building mystery",  and calls the finished film "the best Lovecraftian movie ever made, without being a Lovecraft adaptation", due to its similarities in tone and atmosphere to Lovecraft's works.
What you need is a cinematic equivalent of Lovecraft's prose. Giger has said he liked O'Bannon's initial Alien storyline "because I found it was in the vein of Lovecraft, one of my greatest sources of inspiration.
Findings from an international audience research project conducted by staff from Aberystwyth University , Northumbria University and University of East Anglia were published in by Palgrave Macmillan as Alien Audiences: Remembering and Evaluating a Classic Movie.
The study discusses memories of Alien in the cinema and on home video from the point of view of everyday audiences, describing how many fans share the film with their children and the shocking impact of the "chestburster" scene, among other things.
Despite initial mixed reviews, Alien has received critical acclaim over the years, particularly for its realism and unique environment,  and is cited one of the best films of The website's critical consensus reads, "A modern classic, Alien blends science fiction, horror and bleak poetry into a seamless whole.
Despite having given Alien a mixed review during its original release, Roger Ebert revised his opinion in and included the film in his "Great Movies" column.
He ranked it among "the most influential of modern action pictures" and praised its pacing, atmosphere, and settings:.
One of the great strengths of Alien is its pacing. It takes its time. It waits. It allows silences the majestic opening shots are underscored by Jerry Goldsmith with scarcely audible, far-off metallic chatterings.
It suggests the enormity of the crew's discovery by building up to it with small steps: The interception of a signal is it a warning or an SOS?
The descent to the extraterrestrial surface. The bitching by Brett and Parker, who are concerned only about collecting their shares.
The masterstroke of the surface murk through which the crew members move, their helmet lights hardly penetrating the soup. The shadowy outline of the alien ship.
The sight of the alien pilot, frozen in his command chair. The enormity of the discovery inside the ship "It's full of McIntee praises Alien as "possibly the definitive combination of horror thriller with science fiction trappings.
Alien , on the other hand, focuses on the plight of people being attacked by a monster: "It's set on a spaceship in the future, but it's about people trying not to get eaten by a drooling monstrous animal.
Worse, it's about them trying not to get raped by said drooling monstrous animal. Gorehounds like it for the chest-burster. Science fiction fans love the hard science fiction trappings and hardware.
Men love the battle-for-survival element, and women love not being cast as the helpless victim. David Edelstein wrote, " Alien remains the key text in the 'body horror' subgenre that flowered or, depending on your viewpoint, festered in the seventies, and Giger's designs covered all possible avenues of anxiety.
Men traveled through vulva-like openings, got forcibly impregnated, and died giving birth to rampaging gooey vaginas dentate — how's that for future shock?
This was truly what David Cronenberg would call 'the new flesh,' a dissolution of the boundaries between man and machine, machine and alien, and man and alien, with a psychosexual invasiveness that has never, thank God, been equaled.
In , the American Film Institute ranked Alien as the seventh-best film in the science fiction genre as part of AFI's 10 Top 10 , a CBS television special ranking the ten greatest movies in ten classic American film genres.
The ranks were based on a poll of over 1, film artists, critics, and historians, with Alien ranking just above Terminator 2: Judgment Day and just below Ridley Scott's other science fiction film Blade Runner Alien had both an immediate and long-term impact on the science fiction and horror genres.
Shortly after its debut, Dan O'Bannon was sued by another writer named Jack Hammer for allegedly plagiarising a script entitled Black Space.
However, O'Bannon was able to prove that he had written his Alien script first. One of the first was The Alien Dead , which had its title changed at the last minute to cash in on Alien 's popularity.
The film built on Alien by having many similar creatures, which originated from large, slimy eggs, bursting from characters' chests.
Other science fiction films of the time that borrowed elements from Alien include Galaxy of Terror , Inseminoid , Forbidden World , Xtro , and Dead Space The "chestburster" effect was parodied in Mel Brooks' comedy Spaceballs.
Near the end, in a diner, John Hurt does a cameo appearance as a customer who seems to be suffering indigestion. He turns out to have an "alien" in his gut, and moans, "Oh, no Nintendo 's long-running Metroid video game series, created in , was significantly influenced by Alien, both in stylistic and thematic elements.
In acknowledging the homage to Alien, villains in the first Metroid installment were named Ridley and Mother Brain, after the movie's director and the ship computer, respectively.
In , Alien was deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the National Film Preservation Board of the United States,  and was inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for historical preservation alongside other films of including All That Jazz , Apocalypse Now , The Black Stallion , and Manhattan.
Alan Dean Foster wrote a novelization of the film in both adult and "junior" versions, which was adapted from the film's shooting script.
The Book of Alien contained many production photographs and details on the making of the film, while Giger's Alien contained much of H.
Giger's concept artwork for the movie. In , students at North Bergen High School in New Jersey adapted the film into a play. The production had no budget, with props and sets developed from recycled toys and other items.
Social media recognition brought Scott's attention to the play. He wrote a letter of congratulations to the students "My hat comes off to all of you for your creativity, imagination, and determination" and recommended they consider an adaptation of his film Gladiator for their next stage production.
She got on stage before the performance to congratulate the cast and crew for their creativity and commitment. The success of Alien led 20th Century Fox to finance three direct sequels over the next eighteen years, each by different writers and directors.
Sigourney Weaver remained the only recurring actor through all four films: the story of her character Ripley 's encounters with the Aliens became the thematic and narrative core of the series.
The success of the film series resulted in the creation of a media franchise with numerous novels, comic books, video games, toys, and other media and merchandise appearing over the years.
A number of these began appearing under the Alien vs. Predator crossover imprint, which brought the Alien creatures together with the eponymous characters of the Predator franchise.
A film series followed, with Alien vs. Predator in , and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem in Sigourney Weaver has expressed interest in reuniting with Ridley Scott to revive her character for another Alien film.
In the commentary track for the Alien DVD included in the Alien Quadrilogy set, she and Scott both speculated on the possibility, with Weaver stating: "There is an appetite for a fifth one, which is something I never expected I think outer space adventure is a good thing for us right now, 'cause Earth is so grim Predator films.
Weaver indicated that she would only return to the franchise if either Scott or James Cameron were to direct.
Predator , which he felt would "kill the validity of the franchise". In July , 20th Century Fox announced that Jon Spaihts had been hired to write a prequel to Alien , with Scott attached to direct.
Titled Prometheus , it went into production in May , and was released the following year. Scott said in a statement: "While Alien was indeed the jumping-off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place.
The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien 's DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative.
Variety reported on February 18, that a new Alien film would be developed by Neill Blomkamp. Several computer games based on the film were released, but not until several years after its theatrical run.

Dan [O'Bannon] put his finger on the problem: what has to happen next is the creature has to get on the ship in an interesting way. I have no idea how, but if we could solve that, if it can't be that it just snuck in, then I think the whole movie will come into place.
In the middle of the night, I woke up and I said, "Dan I think I have an idea: the alien screws one of them [ Further information on individual characters: List of Alien characters.
Main article: Alien soundtrack. Further information on the creature: Alien creature in Alien franchise. The "facehugger" was the first creature Giger designed for the film, giving it human-like fingers and a long tail.
The "chestburster" was shoved up through the table and a false torso by a puppeteer. I resent films that are so shallow they rely entirely on their visual effects, and of course science-fiction films are notorious for this.
I've always felt that there's another way to do it: a lot of effort should be expended toward rendering the environment of the spaceship, or space travel, whatever the fantastic setting of your story should be—as convincingly as possible, but always in the background.
That way the story and the characters emerge and they become more real. I mean, people were screaming and running out of the theater.
Further information: List of accolades received by Alien. It suggests that the filmmaker has finally overcome the interference of heavy-handed studio executives, and that the film has been restored to its original, untampered form.
Such is not the case with Alien : The Director's Cut. It's a completely different beast. Some have argued the film's narrative details and visual design were inspired by those of the Italian film Planet of the Vampires top , such as a scene in which the crew discovers a ruin containing giant alien skeletons.
Unfortunately, the films it influenced studied its thrills but not its thinking. Further information: Alien franchise.
