7 Best Alien Movies That Are out of This World ...

I love a good alien movie and I would like to share some of what I believe are the best alien movies that are out of this world. It seems we have long been fascinated by the possibility of not being alone and we would be arrogant to assume that there aren't other life forms out there. But what do they look like? Are they hostile? And why is it that all the pictures make them out to be grey creatures with huge almond shaped eyes and spindly fingers? Whilst I cogitate these philosophical questions for the millionth time, here are some of the best alien movies.

1. Alien & Aliens


Ok, I've been a bit cheeky and surreptitiously shoe-horned two movies in one go here but please bear with me. These are two of my all time favorite alien movies and you may be wondering why I didn't include the other titles in the franchise in this list. Well, to be brutally honest, I didn't feel as though they matched their predecessors and Aliens was one of the rare occasions where the sequel actually tops the first. Sigourney is sensational and the sense of claustrophobia created by the outer space setting adds to the eeriness. These are just two of the best alien movies.
