To all the film buffs, as you good people are aware this book dealt with the how and why the film,ALIEN, was filmed,i just wish that i had bought this, book in 1979 when this film was first shown.Overall a nice piece of history of horror set in space.This book is quite rare and is hard to find....please bring it back.............
5.0 out of 5 starsFantastic Research.July 28 2014

One of the sections of a class I teach is on film history / appreciation. I use the 1979 film Alien as the basis for my course. Because of this (and the fact it's a fantastic film) I've collected a lot of research material over the years. This is one of the best that I've found because it was published right after the film came out. The insights are fresh and less reliant on memories or polish. I sat down and went through it all in one sitting.
