After reading the mixed reviews..I made up my mind on the recommendation of a friend to check it out. It was great. This was the prequel to the original Alien movies. Turns out the "Space Jockey" from the first Alien film in the crescent space ship is actually the creator of the creature along with many other life forms. It's not for the casual sci-fi fan. If you were a fan of films like "Event Horizon" or "From Beyond"..you should dig. Yeah..there's a very HP Lovecraft element to it.
