Synopsis:

Some movies are just perfection and can’t be improved. That’s one of them. But there’s always a way to provide some new interesting way to experience them and that was the goal here. Ridley Scott’s masterpiece has been converted to Grindhouse-like movie. Video got additional heavy grain and print damage, 90% of the movie was re-scored, some deleted scenes and outtakes reinstated, along with little additions of footage and dialogue lines from other movies, and some fan-created videos. New opening credits sequence was created and the end credits were also changed. Some scenes were cut, some repurposed and as a cherry on top, an alternate ending was added.


Intentions:

To create a version with different vibe and feel, with added plot changes that may surprise even those, who know the movie by heart.


Change List:

- Grindhouse effects added throughout the movie - Re-scored over 90% of the movie & rebuilded some missing sfx - Cut some dialogue scenes - Added three deleted scenes from Alien Anthology Blu-ray set - Re-edited some sequences (especially some of death scenes) using outtakes footage from Alien Anthology Blu-ray set and a few seconds of footage from other movies. - Added some additional dialogue lines from other movies - Re-purposed some scenes for new little sub-plot - Added alternate ending
