    1. There are two 'official' versions of this movie with different soundtracks, both great, and seeing as it's essentially a silent film, there are various fan scores floating around out there. Chaybee shared this awesome Psychic Teen version of it with me way back when.

    1. Did they jump out of their skin during the chest burst?

      Delete
    2. Absolutely. It was a whole crowd of millenials at one of those Game of Thrones style screenings at a bar/micro-theater. The place inserted a ten-minute intermission after that scene, which, amazingly, actually made the movie more fun to sit through. The excitement in the place after they'd gotten knocked on their ass by that scene (which they genuinely didn't seem to know was coming) was palpable.

      Delete
    3. Did the theater get noticeably less crowded after the intermission?

      Delete
    4. Haha, no, of course not! Everyone stayed, and were even more tense during the final fifteen minutes than they were during the chestburst scene. Weirdly, a lot of them had already seen Prometheus, Covenant, etc before the original. I guess the lesson is young people will respond to good older movies if they see them, but they don't seek them out on their own, and see the new stuff because it's what they're being presented with.

      Delete
    5. Seems to be the case. I'm the only person my age (27), that I know that is truly interested in older or foreign films. Sad too because I think we have truly lost something with current Hollywood films, but that's just my opinion. I don't know if a lot of the people I know could sit patiently through Alien. Such a slow burn.

      Delete
    6. I disagree. We tend to remember the good stuff, and that’s what we rewatch. However, it’s sledom that out of any single year more than a handful of films we care about we released. Same with today. You just remember the bad stuff because it’s fresh on your mind.

    1. I remembered watching this shortly after watching Faces of Death when I was in highschool. It was a dark time for me.

      Delete
    2. I was into stuff like that too at the same time ('00-'01), watching stuff as like a dare to myself: Guinea Pig, Traces of Death, Salo, The Untold Story, Ebola Syndrome, Red Room. Eventually you figure out that it's kinda pointless to do (they are mostly all just movies after all), but it was a fun experiment. The things kids have access to now is absolutely horrifying, and makes those kinds of things seem downright naive. Ten minutes on Liveleak will show you things a thousand times more terrifying than everything in the whole of 'shock' cinema combined. Salo was the only one that really fucked me up, since in some ways it was Funny Games two decades ahead of Funny Games; it really woke me up to how dumb I was being. I watched both that and Last House on the Left '72 for the first time as a double feature at a sleepover my junior year, ha ha! I've had MBtS on DVD for over fifteen years! It was time to finally sit down with it.

      Delete
    3. I'm right there with you. I was obsessed with trying to find the most fucked up movies, not realizing how pointless it was. In regards to Salo, though, I went so far as to buy the book it's based off of. The movie was a cakewalk compared to that book. I've come to the conclusion that book is impossible to complete.
