The Best 35th Anniversary Artwork for Ridley Scott's Alien

It's been thirty-five years since the release of Ridley Scott's Alien, in which time it's been widely recognized as one of the best sci-fi/horror movies of all time. In honor of the chestburster's birthday, Poster Posse did a series of round-ups of Alien anniversary artwork from their network of artists. Here are our favorites from Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3:

 

The Scariest

 

Considering the technological advancements that have taken place in the last few decades, you would think that a monster from the 70's would be cheesy and would fail to scare. But after 35 years, the Xenomorph never fails to terrify:

The Prettiest

 

You wouldn't think that artwork for a movie this focused on disgusting, rapey body horror could be pretty, but it is:
