10 Best Alien Movies of All Time
Now that the Department of Defense has declassified footage of U.F.O.s from the Navy, it’s time to return to those alien films that once seemed like pure fiction. This time, for research. If you’re an impassioned enthusiast, or an Area 51 stormer, Hollywood might not be the best source to satisfy your curiosity. However, if you found yourself attempting to “binge-watch” the three blurry videos with hopes of some lasers and CGI jump-scares, there’s an extensive library of alien flicks you should be putting on your radar.
From space invaders, to intergalactic discoveries, and, of course, the heart-warming connection of “Man meets Martian,” there’s a well-suited alien movie for just about every genre. With a subject matter so out of this world, the alien movie stands as a distinct genre all its own. Don’t worry about falling into the black hole of campy, low-budget space thrillers; we’ve scanned the Milky Way for some movies that are the cream of the crop circles.
Directed by Ridley Scott, this sci-fi horror film follows a crew aboard the commercial spaceship Nostromo, who soon discover that their ship has been invaded by a deadly extraterrestrial. (See also: Aliens, the franchise’s next installment, for another stand-out performance from a spacebound Sigourney Weaver.)
You either spent a portion of your childhood trying to ride your bike fast enough to launch into space, or you’ve never seen this movie. There is no in between. Either way, Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece E.T. is a mandatory watch or rewatch for all alien lovers. Offering a sci-fi and family flick in one, E.T. tells the heartwarming story of a young family who discovers a homesick alien stranded in their backyard.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
This Don Siegel-directed sci-fi horror film doubles as a McCarthy-era allegory. The film focuses upon a California doctor who recounts the alien invasion that overtook his hometown, overtaking humans and rendering them into a zombie-like state.
John Carpenter’s The Thing is a technical feat of its time, marking a major advancement in the special effects standards of the sci-fi genre. The film follows a crew of researchers in Antarctica who encounter an otherworldly creature capable of assuming the form of anything it preys upon, determined to kill their base camp one by one.
The Day the Earth Stood Still
Directed by Robert Wise, this film tells of the arrival of a humanoid alien by the name of Klaatu, who arrives on Earth with the companionship of his robot bodyguard, Gort. Determined to deliver an important message, Klaatu decides to shut down the world’s power for one day to make the Earth “stand still.”
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Another sci-fi great from director Steven Spielberg, Close Encounters of the Third Kind provides a more nuanced, human lens to the genre of extraterrestrial encounters. The film follows the story of Roy Neary, an electrical lineman whose close encounter with a U.F.O. leads him to leave his daily life in pursuit of his newfound obsession.
Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as the leader of a Vietnam War paramilitary rescue team, who are ordered on a rescue mission into the jungles of Central America. Within the thick tropical climate, the team finds themselves a target to a lethal alien predator that is stalking them throughout the jungle.
Edge of Tomorrow
Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt star as two soldiers defending the Earth against an unrelenting alien attack in this action thriller. Discovering a paradoxical loophole in which the two soldiers resurrect and repeat their combat every time they die, the duo find themselves incrementally getting closer to defeating the invaders.
From writer-director M. Night Shyamalan, Signs explores the consequences that follow a sudden apparition of crop circles on the Pennsylvania farm of a former priest. Beginning as a chillingly ominous thriller, the film quickly progresses into an exploration of faith, family, and otherworldly encounters with performances by Mel Gibson, Joaquin Phoenix, Rory Culkin, and Abigail Breslin.
War of the Worlds
Tom Cruise stars as a divorced father determined to protect his family through an extraterrestrial invasion in this Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation of H.G. Wells’s 1898 novel. As tensions run high Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning, playing his daughter, form an unforgettable survival duo in the midst of this action drama.
