Episode 17: Horror in the Alien Franchise

December 6, 2021

Dave, Michael, Devan, and Ryan escape in the Narcissus in terror as they discuss one of the most powerful and prevalent elements not only within the Alien franchise, but in many of the greatest stories ever told: Horror.  The crew dive into what draws them in most to horror, how the horror genre was used effectively in the Alien series, and what earlier fictional works helped inspire the filmmakers within the franchise.  They also talk about a few of the many horror films that were heavily influenced by Alien and Aliens, with varying levels of success, and give a few recommendations for the listeners.  We hope you have a great time listening to this latest episode!  Stay frosty and don't worry, they mostly come out at night...….mostly.
