“In space, no one can hear you scream,” is one of several poster tag-lines for Ridley Scott’s 1979 film, Alien, a claustrophobic horror film that dishes out scares in an intentionally subdued manner — that is until we get into the third act. Our story follows the crew of the Nostromo, a commercial spacecraft that receives a distress call from an alien vessel on a nearby moon. As mandated by their mission, the crew must investigate any and all SOS beacons. Stepping aboard the unidentified ship, the Nostromo team discovers a chamber filled with hundreds of eggs, one of which hatches and evolves into a monolithic Xenomorph. Alien is a classic example of a film that does a lot with little, especially in terms of budget and effects. But the end-result is a nail-biting, sci-fi chiller that is hard to forget.
We all need to let loose once in a while. The same goes for Marcus (Lil Rel Howery) and Emily (Yvonne Orji), the main characters of Vacation Friends. At a resort in Mexico, the straight-lacers party it up with newfound friends, Ron (John Cena) and Kyla (Meredith Hagner). But when the week of thrills concludes, Marcus and Emily return to their normal lives. On the day of their wedding, John and Cena show up uninvited, descending a rowdy whirlwind onto the day of nuptials.
