[edit] Information

Originally aired on AMC, this documentary focuses on one of the most horrifying series ever to be committed to celluloid — the Alien film series. In 1979, ALIEN burst onto the scene with a strong female lead in the form of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) battling the ultimate biomechanical creature. The brilliant and terrifying result reinvented the horror/sci-fi genre. This award-winning, feature-length documentary serves as the definitive story of how a dark, nightmarish screenplay became one of the most successful - and celebrated - film franchises in Hollywood history. THE ALIEN SAGA also examines the sexual and mythic origins of its subject with compelling interviews, never-before-seen outtakes and extensive highlights from all four big-screen incarnations. HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE: - The greatest moments from ALIEN (1979), ALIENS (1986), ALIEN3 (1992) and ALIEN: RESURRECTION (1997). - Rare home movies, screen tests and outtakes. - Exclusive interviews with cast members Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Michael Biehn and Carrie Henn; artist and "Alien" designer H.R. Giger; screenwriters Dan O'Bannon, Ronald Shusett and Joss Whedon; special effects artists Martin Bower, Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr. - and many, many more! Producer/Director: Brent Zacky; A Prometheus Entertainment Production in Association with Van Ness Films, Inc., Fox Television Studios and AMC American Movie Classics
