In a decade noted for its horror and thrillers ("The Omen," "The Exorcist," "Marathon Man"), "Alien" is still, in my opinion, the most piss-your-pants scary film of the 1970s, if not ever. Just watching the trailer makes my heartbeat rise.

I really hope "Prometheus" can live up to that promise, because it seems that's what Ridley Scott wants to invoke with this trailer.
