Alien 40th Anniversary short film: Alone & Harvest


Hello! I totally forgot about Friday, which was Alien Day, but today I’m making up for it with two short films, both are equally good.

To celebrate Alien’s 40th anniversary and in partnership with Tongal, 20th Century Fox is releasing new Alien-universe fan-made short films leading up to Alien Day on April 26th.

But the Alien fun isn’t over just yet! 20th Century Fox revealed that to mark the 40th anniversary of Alien, the movie will return to more than 600 theaters for three days only — October 13, 15 and 16 — as part of Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies’ yearlong TCM Big Screen Classic Series.

Written and directed by Noah Miller, the synopsis for “Alone” reads, “Hope, an abandoned crew member aboard the derelict chemical hauler Otranto, has spent a year trying to keep her ship and herself alive as both slowly fall apart. After discovering hidden cargo, she risks it all to power up the broken ship in search of human life.” 

The guy in the film is none other than Bill Paxton’s son, James! 


Directed by Benjamin Howdeshell, the synopsis for “Harvest” reads: “The surviving crew of a damaged deep-space harvester have minutes to reach the emergency evacuation shuttle. A motion sensor is their only navigation tool leading them to safety while a creature in the shadows terrorizes the crew. However, the greatest threat might have been hiding in plain sight all along.”

In my opinion, this one is the best. The thought of being in a situation so intense, how it was executed and the ending was unexpectedly good.  I need to do a list of worst to best or something along with that. 

I think I will do that later on Wednesday. Until then enjoy the rest of your Sunday, be blessed!
