If anyone was curious about Alien: Covenant, I would recommend it. Whereas Alien is borrows much from the slasher sub-genre of horror, Alien: Covenant is more or less straight up gothic horror, complete with what amounts to a creepy castle, pouring rain, Frankenstein-esque weird science and plenty of gore as well. Considering it's a sci-fi film, it was interesting to see Ridley Scott pay homage to a form of horror that you wouldn't naturally assume would go with sci-fi quite so well, and though I think it pulls it off it isn't so seamlessly blended as the slasher genre was with the original. It is also more or less a direct sequel to Prometheus more so than it is an Alien film, which I think might be off-putting to some people, but I didn't mind - I always thought Prometheus was a reasonable film that fell short of people's sky high expectations with Ridley Scott returning to the Alien franchise. If you're a fan of the franchise it's definitely worth a watch, and it's a solidly entertaining 7/10 - probably an 8/10 for me personally for the unusual horror nods and the complex philosophical questions as well as great character development (well, of at least of one character) that occurs in the movie. Good morning.
