Alien Day, 26th April, is two weeks away and IGN has released the third in a series of movie shorts made by fans of the Alien franchise to celebrate forty years since the release of Alien.

Last weeks short Alien: Specimen set the bar relatively high with its well-executed acting, lighting, and sound design, especially after the generic though modestly made first short Alien: Containment. This week's short Alien: Night Shift was directed and written by Aidan Michael Brezonick and stars Amber Gaston, Terrance Kieth Richardson, Christopher Murray, and Tanner Rittenhouse

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Nice! Like the others, it has a nice twist.

I liked! Finally we can see the classic chestbuster.


ChestbursterMember902 XPApr-12-2019 10:38 AM

This should have been called Night of the Living Alien instead.

That handgun was fashioned after Rick Deckard's! ;)

Anyone else hear a Predator at the very end?

It is good that they kept a lot of it in the dark. I can understand sort of how you would feel when there are nasty things around you that you do not see. We just saw the monster once I think? Having it like this made my imagination going because it could mean that they could be anywhere which makes it a lot scarier.
