» Alien
In the near future, the Nostromo, a commercial spaceship returning to earth intercepts a distress SOS from a distant planet. The seven-member crew are woken up from their hyper-sleep as the ship descends on the planet. While exploring the planet, a three-member team of the crew discovers a derelict spaceship and a huge chamber inside containing thousands of alien eggs. When a curious team member gets a little too close to one of the eggs a parasite inside the egg attacks him, rendering him unconscious. He's brought back aboard and the spaceship takes off. After a while the parasite dies and his host wakes up seemingly unruffled. Everything returns to normal - but not for long. This Sci-Fi classic that launched a franchise is directed by Ridley Scott. "Final report of the commercial starship Nostromo, third officer reporting. The other members of the crew, Kane, Lambert, Parker, Brett, Ash and Captain Dallas, are dead. Cargo and ship destroyed. I should reach the frontier in about six weeks. With a little luck, the network will pick me up. This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off." (1979)

7/31 - 8/6
» Aliens
Ripley, the sole survivor of the alien attack on the mining ship Nostromo, awakens half a century later when she is found by a salvage ship. The welcome given to her by the "Company" officials is far from warm, since they refuse to believe her discovery of alien existence. She also discovers, much to her horror, that the planet LV-426 where her crew had encountered an alien species for the first time, is now colonized by the company. But when all contact from the planet is lost Ripley's called back into action as an adviser to a team of tough space marines. To get rid of her recurrent nightmares about the alien creature, Ripley prepares for a final battle with the monsters - and this time, there are hundreds of them out there. Directed by James Cameron. "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure." (1986)

8/7 - 8/13
» The Monster Squad
One hundred years ago, Dracula and some other monsters survived Dr. Van Helsing's attack with a magical amulet on the Count's castle. In the present day, Dracula travels to the United States and he summons the Werewolf, the Mummy, the Swamp Thing and Frankenstein's creature to help him to retrieve the long missing amulet. 12-year-old Sean Crenshaw and his best friend Patrick are die hard monster fanatics. Along with their friends they come together and talk monsters in their tree house. They rally when the monsters arrive in search of the powerful amulet that will grant them power to rule the world. Our heroes - the Monster Squad are the only ones daring to stand in their way. Directed by Fred Dekker and co-written with Shane Black. "Where the hell am I supposed to find silver bullets? K-Mart?" (1987)
