ALIEN (1979) memories...

So, where were YOU when you first encountered Ridley Scott's masterpiece of shapeshifting space terror? Here's what WildClaw's Dr. AC had to say:

"I had the good fortune of seeing ALIEN for the first time in the cinema in 1979, back when "chest-burster" had not yet entered the popular lexicon. All I was aware of going in, at the tender age of 11, was the creepy poster art of that infamous space egg, with the unforgettable tagline "In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream." Coming out, I knew that I had been changed forever, much in the same way that HALLOWEEN had traumatized me the year before. I was a huge fan of monster-in-a-suit movies and I loved sci-fi, but nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see aboard the Nostromo's fateful last voyage.

"The chest-buster scene was one of those magical moments in my moviegoing life, now that I look back on it. The crowd that I saw it with did not, remarkably enough, scream out loud when little junior Alien popped out of John Hurt's innards. Instead, we all just sat there slack-jawed, disbelieving, and quietly, slowly, inexorably lost our mutual mind. Stunned doesn't even begin to approach what we felt. We had all encountered something that we not only hadn't seen before, we had never even imagined it. It was something akin to PSYCHO's shower scene - once witnessed, it could never, ever be forgotten."

Anyone else?
