ALIEN is a 1979 sci-fi horror thriller in which the crew of a spacecraft respond to a distress beacon on a remote planet, where they discover a hostile alien life form.

Violence

Scenes of violence and horror include a sequence in which an alien bursts out of a man's chest with resultant bloody splatter. There is also sight of a robot character being decapitated resulting in spewing white liquid instead of blood.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'bitch', 'hell', 'shit', 'Goddamn', 'son-of-a-bitch', 'damn', 'ass', 'bastard' and 'Jesus'.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
