Critic Reviews:

Alien may not have been totally original in its approach, but the film's widespread acceptance made it a blueprint for an entire sub-genre.

Visionary and terrifying, Ridley Scott’s Alien hybridized the horror and science-fiction genres in 1979 to effectively launch a new subgenre, and countless clones have since grafted from the resultant genetic blueprint.

..I have had many an argument with others debating the possibility that Alien is not a sci-fi movie at all but rather a full fledge horror film that just happens to be set in outer space.
