THEY SAY: “The ads for Aliens claim that this movie will frighten you as few movies have, and, for once, the ads don’t lie […] I have never seen a movie that maintains such a pitch of intensity for so long; it’s like being on some kind of hair-raising carnival ride that never stops. I don’t know how else to describe this: the movie made me feel bad. It filled me with feelings of unease and disquiet and anxiety. I walked outside and I didn’t want to talk to anyone. I was drained. I’m not sure Aliens is what we mean by entertainment. Yet I have to be accurate about this movie: It is a superb example of filmmaking craft.“ – Roger Ebert, 1986
WE SAY: Few sequels have garnered such praise as Aliens, and it’s easy to see why. A relentless, nightmarish journey down endless dark tunnels, and yet it still finds room for the odd moment of perfectly pitched gallows humour. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, but also one you will definitely be glad to experience.
