Re-Release: Directors Cut 2003

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film's synopsis and content.

Synopsis:

What begins as an investigation into an SOS from a spaceship that crash-landed on an unknown planet turns into a desperate fight to save their own lives. Unbeknownst to the crew of the rescuing vessel is the presence of an Alien creature that uses humans as a host --and the parasite leaves no survivors.

After huge box office success when it was released in 1979, Alien is making another big screen appearance. This time, the film being shown is the Director's Cut.
