Still the best horror film ever. It was good to see the extended version with the scenes returned of the crew in the wall, etc.

I never get sick of watching the Alien Movie and rewatching the the first Movie again was even better. The extra footage puts a whole new spin on the movie and much easier to watch. Looking forward to seeing the other 8 discs.

A film that is still scary and suspenseful even after having seen it a number of times and is also 35 years old. Well written, directed and acted and the cat is brilliant too.
