I'm embarrassed to say how many times I have seen it. For 1979 it was made well. Could be made today and still scare the shit out of people.

Aliens (1986).

Bad ass Marines, big guns, and Vasquez (the Marine chick). Doesn't get any better than that.

The best horror movie by far IMHO, also a pretty cool allegory for several sociological issues

Re: Seriously...has there EVER been a better movie than the 1979 classic "Alien"?
It came out when I was nine years old, a couple of the "cool" kids claimed they saw it and talked about how good it was, so I begged and pleadded with my father to take me to see it, I got told know till I actually got a spanking( yes youcould still spank your kids those days).
So I did one better. I was supposed to go see a different movie with a friends parents and suck into alien instead.
It fucked me up.
It scared me so bad I couldn't hardly sleep for a week.
And almost wet the bed because I didn't want to walk down the dark hallway to the bathroom.
I kept the lights on and refused to go outside after dark for months.
I love that movie now, but it freaked me out went I was nine.
Never did tell my parents.

Shaft in Africa.

Enough said.
Well it seems so real I can see it
And it seems so real I can feel it
And it seems so real I can taste it
And it seems so real I can hear it
So why can't I touch it?

Oh yes! Jaws was a goddamn horrific film for me as kid too.

Some critics list Jaws as the all time best horror movie...you can't go wrong listing Jaws or Alien as number one.

I was watching it only a few months ago, and had to pause to go to the bathroom..same routine, long DARK hall.

I'm walking down it, my head full of "Alien", passed a deadend corridor branching off to my right and this shuffling movement sound came towards me out of the pitch black.

Just about had a heart attack---it was the family dog WHO NEVER hangs out in that dark boxed end! LOL

She's never hung out in it before or since, but damn her she did that one time! LOL
