Forty years ago, a terrifying film burst from the mind of Ridley Scott, "xeno-morphing" into one of the most iconic franchises of all time. From the first menacing Chestburster shock to the last acid-drooling extraterrestrial kill, ALIEN became the definitive sci-fi horror film, winning fans, critics, and an Academy Award along the way.
Over the next two weeks, fans can continue to experience the Alien 40th Anniversary Shorts, a series of frightening new narratives from six emerging filmmakers selected from over 550 entries through a 20th Century Fox partnership with creator community Tongal. These terrifying tales have been shocking viewers on IGN since the first short debuted on March 29th, and the final two thrillers will be unearthed on ALIEN DAY, April 26th. The short films will also be added onto the iTunes extra features.
Launching into ALIEN Day, the biggest name brands have created exclusive collections in honour of the franchise.
