Episode 7 - Alien 40th Anniversary Short Films

October 10, 2020

Dave, Michael, and Ryan board the Sulaco to discuss the Alien short fan films that were released in the Spring of 2019 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original release of Alien.  The crew discuss each of the six films ("Harvest," "Alone," "Night Shift," "Ore," "Specimen," and "Containment'), which ones we enjoyed the most and why, and which ones we think fell short in adding to the atmosphere and lore of the franchise.  Regardless of our artistic critiques, for being fan made and given only about 10 minutes each, the films are very well produced and we applaud those fans for their efforts.  If you haven't seen them yet, please check them out!!  They're available to watch on YouTube, courtesy of IGN.  Let us know what you think of them and if you agree or disagree with our assessments.  As always, thank you for tuning in!!  Stay frosty!!!
