Though Ridley Scott seems hellbent on dismantling the core mythologies of the Alien franchise with his bloated, bombastic prequels Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, the first 2 films remain classics of both horror and sci-fi. 1979’s Alien is a masterpiece of claustrophobic body-horror and 1986’s Aliens, directed by James Cameron, has as much action as terror and garnered Sigourney Weaver an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.
The latter is the subject of Dead Meat’s latest Kill Count video. Narrator James A. Janisse delivers an examination of the movie’s many dispatches, from the jaw-dropping to the heart-wrenching. It’s more than just a highlight of the kill scenes, it’s a complete recap of the film with witty commentary and running stats.
