I'm sorry but

I just cannot take the original monster from Alien (1979) seriously.

I love virtually everything else about the film. The set design, the photography, the whole damn atmosphere is just immaculate. You want to fucking be there to just take in that whole vibe of the film (but not really because scary, of course).

I've seen the film at least 4 times and every time the actual goddamn alien shows up on screen, it just looks like a guy in a suit with a thing on his head to me. Like, it literally makes me laugh.

This opinion is probably made worse by the fact that I kinda love Aliens and Alien Cubed. The creatures in the sequels freak me out so much more.

Not sure if it's just the age of the production itself, but I just lose all immersion when I see this lanky cosplay guy show up and it's like "wait, that’s what we're supposed to be afraid of?"

Idk, it's weird ... I'm weird.

Since I was on a slasher movie marathon these days, let's see...
New Nightmare>Elm Street
Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 > Halloween
Texas Chainsaw 2003 > Texas Chainsaw
And none of these movies will ever be five star horror masterpieces a la The Shining, The Exorcist, Don't Look Now etc.

Fun lil' experiments/distractions within the series': Friday the 13th Part IV, Jason Lives & Jason X, Halloween 2018.

Now, onto Chucky...
