Yesterday I went to see the movie “Alien Covenant” with my boyfriend. I normally would not have picked this movie, however, I wanted him to pick a movie he wanted to see. Typically, I avoid scary movies at all costs (and had I watched the trailer for this movie before hand I probably wouldn’t have ever walked into the theatre).
The beginning of the movie was interesting. I was pretty invested in watching it and enjoyed watching it. That was until the aliens started shooting out of people’s backs.
The “birth” of the aliens was absolutely disgusting. I’ve never had an issue with blood and gross scenes in movies. There’s a first for everything. This movie actually made me feel sick to my stomach. I thought that I was going to get sick at any moment.
Apparently, there are a couple of sequels to this movie, which I have never seen. With that being said, I really didn’t follow the plot of the movie. At the end all I kept saying and thinking was “What is even happening right now”. That could also be because I spent half of the movie covering my eyes from watching the aliens. I was almost positive I would see those things in my nightmares that night.
My boyfriend said that he thought it was a good movie. He had seen the ones prior and understood what was happening. There was one scene that was pretty funny at the end.
Despite the gross scenes and scary aliens, the movie graphics and characters were great.
7/10 would recommend seeing. If you aren’t easily scared or don’t have any issues with blood and gross scenes, you would enjoy this movie.
Has anyone else seen this movie?
