This week’s trailer Tuesday is a little different. In honor of a big review I’m posting on Friday, I decided to share the trailer for Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Alien.

I love the way the trailer is put together. It matches the tone of the movie well. It shows you nothing but you know immediately it’s something you want to see. It’s a quality that’s lacking in today’s trailers. View the trailer below.

    Ah, “Alien” – how I love this film. Hell, even the trailer is a masterpiece. I’ll always consider it not so much a sci-fi flick, but an old-fashioned horror movie with sci-fi trappings. And it will always remain in my list of the top five scariest films ever made.
