Remembering “Alien” And Anticipating “Prometheus”

Sprung from the gelatinous innards of an obscene egg on some far-off planet, a hideous, squidlike thing leaps onto the startled face of a hapless astronaut. Yuck!  What could be more basic than “Alien”? A crew of space travelers on a commercial mission picks up a strange organism on a remote planet and brings it aboard ship, where it disappears, metamorphoses and proceeds to eat our heroes one by one.
