Alien is for me one of the best movies ever made, featuring a unique sci-fi setting with the ultimate horror atmosphere. The movie was originally released as 1h 56m theatrical cut, and later also as a 1h 55m director’s cut, which featured about 5 minutes of extra footage, but unfortunately also omitted about 6 minutes of footage from theatrical cut, because Ridley Scott wanted to make it a fast paced movie for “modern audiences”. 

Well, I don’t consider myself modern audience, therefore I have decided to professionally edit the definitive full length Special Edition of the movie myself, using the most recent 4K UHD HDR remaster made for 2019 commercial UHD Blu-ray release. This uncut Special Edition now includes all existing scenes for a full runtime of nearly 2h 01m. In scenes where the two original cuts had alternate angles, the angle from director’s cut was used.
