This is more top notch stuff from Kennedy and Larocca.
The stand out moment, however, was at the very start. There’s a scene with a little girl and her grandfather hiding while alarms blare and the aliens break into their quarters and all you really see is her face…and the tension is palpable, the sense of horror so very real.
The rest of the story is fairly standard Alien stuff, the man who thought he was out of it all is dragged back into it all and has to face certain death as he has no choice but to put himself in the way of the greatest killing machine that ever bled acid.
Look, if you like the Alien franchise you’ll love this. I’m the kind of person who personally thinks there’s no such thing as a bad Alien movie. So, of course I love this.
