When ALIEN was an utter mystery…



Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed by all the details there are to know about  your favorite movie? Well, I sure do, and here’s my cure…


I came across this article today, written by Ryan Britt over a year ago.

38 years ago, journalists were pumped, with good reason.


In the article, he explores that memorable issue of Starlog (#23) that captured the attention and imaginations of so many fans that summer of 1979.

Those creepy photos.

The cool tech.

But nowhere did you see…

…the Alien!


When I wonder if I’ll ever remember the multitude of minutiae about ALIEN, I love to go back to the beginning, like Ryan did here, and discover it all over again!

P.S. As a bonus, he included a link to the online issue so you can read the magazine yourself.
