Yo, Oren Peli, I’m Happy for You, and I’ma Let You Finish…

… but Ridley Scott’s Alien is the scariest movie of all time!

People seem to be peeing their pants over Oren Peli’s Paranormal Activity, and who can blame them for being excited over a movie that’s genuinely scary?

But let’s not forget that 2009 marks the 30th — yes, as in three oh, you dabgum punks — anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Alien, the indisputed monster movie heavyweight champion of the world. To celebrate the occasion, the American Cinematheque is screening a double feature of Alien and it’s inferior-but-pretty-damn-entertaining sequel Aliens (1986) at the Egyptian Theater this Friday at 8:00 p.m..

That’s over four hours of facesucking fun for the entire family!

  1. Mike, I agree about “Alien.” See also, “The Ring.” It’s made fun of now in one of the “Scary Movie” parodies, but when it came out, whoa. Ditto for “Silence of the Lambs.”

  2. I never actually saw the American version of “The Ring,” but the Japanese “Ringu” was pretty damn freaky. I’d also put the original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” way up there on the scary list.
