I can’t lie to you about your chances, but… you have my sympathies.
The iconic masterpiece Alien was released in 1979. It completely changed the landscape of of not one, but two genres – horror and science fiction. The film follows a crew of space workers come across a derelict craft where one of their number is exposed to an alien egg case. When the egg hatches, it unleashes a horrific spider-like creature that attaches itself to the unfortunate victim. Based on surreal concepts by Swiss artist H.R. Giger, the alien spider plants a parasite inside the crew member which grows into adult form, also designed by Giger, which slowly hunts down the crew one-by-one until final girl Ellen Ripley is left. With an artificial Big Brother-like ship computer and a duplicitous android, the film contains layer upon layer of horrific subtext. Starting off a deep dive into D&D conversions for this long-running franchise is the first form of these classic monsters – the Xenomorph.
