ALIEN is one of the best horror/science-fiction movies ever made. Don’t argue with me on this, you’d be wrong.
Here are some behind the scenes shots, mainly of the models used in the film. They look stunning.
It’s a shame that movies seem to be moving to CGI wholesale, foregoing the distinct effects you can only achieve with models.
Moon is the only picture that comes to mind that has used models in recent years. I don’t think Duncan Jones could have got the atmosphere of the film as spot-on if he had used CGI.
