Reel Comic Heroes 056 - Aliens with Andy DiGenova


The last time we saw Ellen Ripley, she was settling in for a long nap after all of her crewmates were hunted and killed by an alien xenomorph. We’re joining her as she wakes up from her sleep to discover she’s slept longer than she intended and discovers a new colony is overrun with xenomorphs. Joining us on Ripley’s trip back to LV-426 is Andy DiGenova from Holy BatCast. Let’s hope we make it through the night, which as we know, is mostly when they come out. Mostly. 

57 years later, Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team during her hypersleep. The moon from the original movie has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?

Reel Comic Heroes 024 - Alien

Alien is one of those weird movies that is essentially just a slasher/thriller, but because of how well-made it is, it is regarded often as a classic piece of cinema. And rightfully so. This is a movie about survival in the face of pure terror against a creature that, like Keith Richards, cannot be killed by conventional weapons.
