I didn't know until a couple years ago that I actually liked horror movies. I wasn't allowed to watch violent films as a kid, though my mother had no qualms about the sexy ones. Alien holds a special place in my heart, because she saves the cat. It just resonates so strongly, horrible slavering monster bearing down on you, ready to eviscerate you or worse, and no matter how much it slows you down or bruises your shins, you take the carrier with the cat. For those of you who haven't seen the movie, I promise I haven't given it away, although I'm guessing if you haven't watched it it's because you don't like super violent scary films and won't be going out to watch it anyway.
