The Voluptuous Horror of Alien: Redux

June 8th, 2012 by unkle lancifer · 8 Comments

PROMETHEUS opens today around these parts so don’t expect to find me anywhere except the movie theater. Wild facehuggers couldn’t keep me away. RIDLEY SCOTT returning to science fiction is cause for celebration enough but the fact that this movie is going to somehow whisper sweet ALIEN nothings in my ear has put goosepimples on my goosepimples. I know the Internet lives to bleed acid on my sanguine expectations and so away from the laptop I must run!

Since I’m feeling nostalgic amore for all things xenomorphic today I shall shamelessly leave you with a recycled post entitled The Voluptuous Horror of Alien! I realize it is unseemly not to hate everything I do but I’m especially fond of this post because it took a lot of time and work and it ended revealing to me things about ALIEN I’d missed before. Another thing it showed me is that I need to get out of the house more often hence my impending hookey-date with CHARLIZE THERON. Hope everyone has a great weekend and make sure to venture to the theater to support this, let’s face it, momentous event! We’ll be back with something fresh and less representative of my Ripleyphilia tomorrow!

    Ahhh… Good ol’ phallic Aylmer. Zacherly is da bomb, yo. Also, you left out “The Bilbo.”

    I can’t even being to tell you how brilliant this post is. I don’t recall seeing it before, so I’m glad it resurfaced! A feast for the eyes!

    I loved your choices. Some of them made me say, “Hmmm…” out loud. You got the brain rolling! Thanks!

    It is not unseemly to boast; this is brilliant. My favorite is The Red Death. It all reminds me of a common “criticism” levied against Alien by benighted critics: “It’s just a haunted house movie in space.” As if that’s a drawback!

    Unkle L, you never cease to amaze me with your creative mind! This is so awesome! I cannot wait to see what you think of the movie!

    Oh man, this was great! “The Cartwright” from “The Birds” could be interchangeable with the one from “Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978″ as the little “Cartwright” wound up being a basket case!

    Unk, you have every right to brag about this epic-ness! :-)
