RMG 249: Alien (1979)

June 9, 2021

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by Jimmy Poole (check out more from Jimmy HERE or HERE), and they’re geeking out over Alien (1979) and

  • realism in both sets & characters
  • sexual innuendos
  • music & sound design
  • genuine scares
  • and much, much more!


In deep outer space, the crew of a commercial spaceship, make an unscheduled landing on a barren and desolate planet for engine repairs.

They encounter a pulsating organism which attaches itself to one of the crew members, and reproduces within his body to become the deadly ALIEN.

As each of the crew members is slain by the creature – one by one – the final confrontation between the last surviving crew member, and the Alien, culminates in an explosive conclusion.
