It’s October, which means Curiosity is skewing spooky. This month our over-excitable alien chum is feeding Rob and Clive titles with an extra layer of creepyplasma.
We start with Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce–a deranged slice of Quatermass-style oddness with added nudity, exploding corpses and weapons-grade scenery-chewing. This one has to be seen to be believed, and even then you won’t believe what you’re seeing.
The red-headed stepchild of the Alien franchise gets a brisk going-over from Rob and Clive. Surrealist French director meets a series that badly needed a shot in the arm. It’s pretty out there. Worryingly, they find lots to like in Alien Resurrection. Have they been out in the depths of space maybe that little bit too long?
Controversy on the Ulysses, as Rob confesses a sneaking admiration for David Fincher’s bleak take on the Alien franchise. Can Clive talk him back to his senses, or does our noble astrogator have a point?
CycloMedia points Rob and Clive at a story about a supercomputer with a mysterious agenda. How very appropriate.
A For Andromeda is a classic piece of British TVSF that would be well worth your attention. If only there was a way to see it…
Alien. The movie that redefined SF horror and made the names of Sigourney Weaver and Ridley Scott. Is there anything more to say about this stone classic? Well, CycloMedia thinks there is, and it’s down to Rob and Clive to sort it out.
