Behind The Scenes: Alien (1979)

“Ripley: Wait a minute. If we let it in, the ship could be infected. You know the quarantine procedure. Twenty-four hours for decontamination.
Dallas: He could die in twenty-four hours. Open the hatch.
Ripley: Listen to me, if we break quarantine, we could all die.”

I have so much love for Ridley Scott’s 1979 Alien, it’s a masterpiece of Horror/Sci-Fi and thankfully we keep getting more and more looks behind the scenes on the set. Like this body bag used for Kane, take a moment and look at all of the details.
