Truth be told, I was too young to watch the original Alien movie in the theater.
I’m not saying that I was too young, so I couldn’t go see it. I’m saying my parents brought me to see it, and they were out of their minds for taking me because I was way too young to watch the original Alien movie – especially in a movie theater.
I probably would have had more nightmares, but that would have meant falling asleep. And take my word for it, everything in a dark room can look like that alien.
Clothes hanging over a desk chair? Alien.
Jacket hanging on a hook? Alien.
Upright vacuum cleaner? Alien.
Lamp on a table? Signs definitely point to Alien.
Well, here it is. In all it’s glory. One of the most memorable scenes in movie history.
