ALIENS is a science fiction horror sequel. It takes place fifty-seven years after the events of the original film whose only survivor returns with a team of space marines to a planet on which deadly creatures have established a colony. This is the Director’s Cut which contains additional material.

Violence

There are scenes in which strong violence is combined with horror as characters are attacked by the creatures and defend themselves with futuristic weapons. One scene features a creature bursting from a woman's abdomen in a bloody manner, and another in which a creature attack results in blood splashing onto the windows of a spacecraft. As the creatures are blasted with gunfire they explode apart, but the injury detail is unrealistic and shown as showers of white liquid. Similarly fantastical injury is contained in a scene when an android is torn in half by a creature's claw.

Language

The film contains strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').
