"In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream."
Today's "Feature Creature" is as close to a perfect film, in my opinion, as you can probably get. At least in the science-fiction-horror arena. Of course, i'm talking about "Alien", Ridley Scott's terrifying 1979 classic. I recently rediscovered this film, and it kicked me so hard in the guts i had to do a really special "Feature Creature" for it. I really wanted to capture the suffocating atmosphere that the film has in droves, as well as one of my favourites, concerning the fate of the spaceship captain, "Dallas". But i definitely had to have Ripley front and center. She's the heart and soul of the entire "Alien" franchise. I hope you like it. As fate would have it, today marks the release of the new science fiction film by Ridley Scott, "Prometheus", which is supposedly set in the same universe as "Alien". I'll be putting up some very LIMITED prints of this piece in the next couple days, so stay tuned. This is Trevor Henderson, last surviving member of the Nostromo, signing off. Watch the trailer here! (It's seriously one of the scariest trailers ever made, and it ruins NOTHING.)
