The Original Alien 2 (Before James Cameron’s Aliens)

Alien 2: on Earth isn’t very good, but fans of that period of Italian horror or gory B movies should have a good time with it. His blatant attempt to take advantage of Extraterrestrial also did not go unchallenged by Fox, and the studio attempted to sue the film’s creators. However, when it was discovered there was a 1930s novel also called Extraterrestrialthis lawsuit was dismissed. Alien 2: On Earth might lack the production value or inventive visuals of Extraterrestrial, but the cave the characters find themselves trapped in is genuinely weird in itself. Also, once the creatures – which don’t look much like HR Giger’s xenomorphs – start attacking, it gets extremely gory.

Given that it’s a low-budget Italian rip-off, it also adds bizarre subplots such as the main character Thelma being telepathic. She even blows off the head of a member of the group – who was taken over by the alien -, Scanners-style. Alien 2: On Earth also ends on a dark note, where even though Thelma escapes the cave, the outside world isn’t much safer. Obviously, James Cameron aliens is the best movie, but Alien 2: On Earth is not without charm.
