Alien: The Director's Cut

An amazing poster image, even though
that's not what the eggs look like
in the movie, and there's no
green spark either?
I've loved this movie since I was a kid, it's one of the first and most powerful scary movies I saw in my formative years. A brilliant combination of serious "hard" science fiction and haunted house horror, the facehugger and xenomorph are the essential movie monsters of the 1980s. The additions for the Director's Cut really enhance the film, which is rare for director's cuts, which all too often add bloat to an already quality film. (AMC Fenway with Jon, Paris, Michelle & Hal, and Todd & Danielle.)
