Alien (1979) opens with a slow pan of deep space and haunting soundtrack, introducing us, its audience, to a tension that will uncoil before our eyes and strike before we can blink!
Artwork like Krister Lindberg’s invokes that chill down my spine feeling from 40 years ago, with its barely perceived horror just at the edge of awareness, against a nebulous, ambiguous (outer) space backdrop.
Cosmic horror, man. Dig it…

Now, where’s the damned cat?
