Alien - The Directors Cut Two Disc Special Edition DVD Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play By transplanting the classic haunted house scenario into space Ridley Scott together with screenwriters Dan O&39;Bannon and Ronald Shusett produced a work of genuinely original cinematic sci-fi with Alien that despite the passage of years and countless inferior imitations remains shockingly fresh even after repeated viewing Scott&39;s legendary obsession with detail ensures that the setting is thoroughly conceived while the Gothic production design and Jerry Goldsmith&39;s wonderfully unsettling score produce a sense of disquiet from the outset everything about the spaceship Nostromo--from Tupperware to toolboxes-seems oddly familiar yet disconcertingly well alien Nothing much to speak of happens for at least the first 30 minutes and that in a way is the secret of the film&39;s success the audience has been nervously peering round every corner for so long that by the time the eponymous beast claims its first victim the release of pent-up anxiety is all the more effective Although Sigourney Weaver ultimately takes centre-stage the ensemble cast is uniformly excellent The remarkably low-tech effects still look good (better in many places than the CGI of the sequels) while the nightmarish quality of HR Giger&39;s bio-mechanical creature and set design is enhanced by camerawork that tantalises by what it doesn&39;t reveal Actors Sigourney Weaver Tom Skerritt John Hurt Veronica Cartwright Harry Dean Stanton Directors Ridley Scott Writers Ronald Shusett Dan O&39;Bannon Producers David Giler Gordon Carroll Ivor Powell Ronald Shusett Walter Hill Format PAL Language English Subtitles English Subtitles For The Hearing Impaired English Region Region 2 (This DVD may not be viewable outside Europe Read more about DVD formats) Aspect Ratio 169 - 2351 Number of discs 2 Classification 18 Studio 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment DVD Release Date 15 Mar 2004 Run Time 117 minutes
