Best horror film ever made


'Alien' is, from my view, the single scariest movie ever put to 8mm film. It scared me more than any other film, and to this day continues to scare me.

The entire film has so much dark and tense atmosphere it's hard to relax at any point, the claustrophobic ship is suffocating in how cramped it looks, and overall the ideas of the film are simply horrifying.

Alien has been described as a "haunted house in space".

I don't consider this a horror film, it is more of a sci-fi/thriller

Why include horror? It could very well be the best film ever made.

It is a masterpiece.
