With the exception of The Descent (which I haven't seen yet), I want to vote for every single film on this poll.

Thanks Heather <_<

You should definitely add it to your "To Watch" list. Then you'll want to vote for every film in this poll!!!

28 Days Later

loved everything about that film

I voted the same. As much as I love Alien or The Thing, there is just something about 28 Days Later that just sets it apart from all other zombie movies and just about every horror.

Alien will go through - that's nailed on, but I voted for 28 Days Later as it deserves to go through to the next round too... :clap:

05-10-2014, 02:55 PM
Alien is one of my top 10 favorite films, but it looks like it already has enough votes to move on. So people vote for The Thing!

05-11-2014, 04:34 AM
The Thing, for reasons I included in the previous round.

05-12-2014, 04:37 AM
I went with 28 Days Later. Its easily my favorite out of this bunch, but that's not to say there aren't some great films in this group.

05-12-2014, 07:06 AM
Went with my heart and voted for The Thing, but it doesn't look like it's going to do it much good. :(

Alien designer HR Giger dies at 74

The Swiss artist and designer of Ridley Scott's Alien, H. R. Giger, has died aged 74, a spokesperson at Giger's museum in Gruyere has confirmed.

He died in hospital of Monday after he fell down stairs at his Zurich home.

Born in 1940, Giger was best known for his 'Xenomorph' alien in Scott's sci-fi horror masterpiece for which he won a visual effects Oscar in 1980.

He studied architecture and industrial design in Zurich and was known for creating strange dreamscapes.

Meticulously detailed, Giger's surrealist paintings were usually produced in large formats and then reworked with an airbrush and usually feature scenes of humans and machines fused together.

Giger described his style as "biomechanical".

One of his pieces in particular - Necronom IV - inspired the titular alien killer in Sir Ridley's hit film.

He also worked on Aliens 3 (1992) and, more recently, appeared in a documentary about director Alejandro Jodorowsky's unmade film of the book Dune.

Giger's vision of a human skull inside a machine appeared on the cover of Emerson, Lake and Palmer's 1973 album, Brain Salad Surgery.

He also designed covers for Debbie Harry's solo album, Koo Koo.

His most infamous work was a poster inserted into the album sleeve of The Dead Kennedys' LP Frankenchrist.

The image of rows of genitalia resulted in the band's vocalist Eric Reed Boucher, aka Jello Biafra, being tried for distributing harmful material to minors in 1986. The case was dismissed.

In 1998, Giger opened his own museum in Gruyeres, Switzerland, which alongside his own paintings and sculptures, displays works from his own art collection from the likes of Salvador Dali, Dada and Ernst Fuchs.

The museum is run by the artist's wife, Carmen Maria Scheifele Giger.

In December 2004, Giger received the prestigious award, La Medaille de la Ville de Paris, at Paris City Hall.

Last year, he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in Seattle, along with fellow inductees, David Bowie and JRR Tolkien.

His work has also been exhibited around the world, including recent retrospectives in Hamburg, Germany, Moscow and Istanbul.

His art is phenomenal. Big loss.

I've been a huge fan of Giger since I was seven and saw the Xenomorph for the first time. A magazine my brother was suscribed to back in the mid-90's had a lot of interviews with him and offered a lot of inside looks at his creations which was totally awesome. I guess it's official, I have to get a massive Xenomorph tattoo, with the stingers going around my arms and shoulders and shit, make it look like its walking along my back...will be badass...I've literally been wanting one since I was thirteen and now I must get one.

I get a sense that Alien will be hard to stop. And it could as well be nominated in our upcoming Sci-Fi tournament.

This is probably the first bracket where the two films moving on are the same two I would've picked.
