You really expect anything to come out of this?
I mean, it's just people's opinions!
I obviously voted for Alien .
Let me give it's merits.

-Great visual design, the ship felt like a futuristic freighter, it felt real, not like a glorified space station or such.

-Believable monster, not some evil creature intent on the annihilation of others, but an unexplained organism, motives unclear.

-Wealth of characters, unlike NOTD each character is extremely personalized, each is obviously different, and all of them react differently to the situation.

-Pace, by the end of Alien, the suspense was almost unbearable, just watching the film, expecting the Alien at every turn, it becomes unsetteling.

-A creature that can keep up with you, unlike NOTD, he isn't a shambling dead thing, it's a living breathing thing, quicker, stronger, and much more agile, it brings up a sense of dread, you can't escape it at all.

-Chest-burster! Face hugger!

-Ridley Scott as director, I mean cmon, is there a better director? Gladiator?

-Great atmosphere, NOTD felt dry, I liked Alien's creepy, quiet, and strange surroundings.

If "NOTD" means "Night of the living dead", than it's just the same there.

But really, this whole topic is like comparing eggs with sausages...

I agree with Chuck. I know it's weird but weird things happen.
To me "Night of the living dead" is an horror movie, but "Alien" is a Sci-fi movie. It can be scary but it is first and foremost a sci-fi movie.

Still, i voted Alien. :Brain:

Alien. It was so good that they made a bazillion sequels trying to cash in. The first couple were really good, after that... meh.
But the original is way awesome.

They did the same with living dead, except Day of the dead, dawn of the dead, land of the dead, teatime of the dead and In the kitchen with the dead were all somewhat decent compared to the alien franchise.

As much as I love NOTD, I have to go with Alien, I've always loved Gigers work (but still prefer NOTD as a film, amazing acheivement with the budget)
