I've found an interesting video offering an in depth analysis of the movie Alien.

'What makes the ALIEN franchise so terrifying? A look at the influence of H.P. Lovecraft and a comparison to 2001: A Space Odyssey will help in finding out why.'

That is fascinating on some different levels. This is a great video- thanks for posting. Someone did some serious homework and research here imo. It gives a lot to think about.

Just one gripe though: I disagree about the Prometheus characters in Part 2 - that was just bad writing lol!

Thank you Ati.

Ridley Scott mentioned HAL as an inspiration when discussing coming up with the "Mother" concept in an interview. The video above is put together very well.
