in space nobody can hear you scream! by piptastic

Chilling space thriller! The tension in this movie has never really been replicated for me, and thus is in my top ten of all time. The aliens couldn’t be more vicious, and adding acidic blood was a master stroke! Various spin offs came from the first movie, but for me it’s only about alien or aliens. Bucket list movie, still as good today.
