Fans celebrated Back to the Future Day on Oct. 21, 2015, the date Doc, Marty and Jennifer traveled to from 1985. In that same spirit, fans of the ALIEN franchise have marked a movie date of their own. Taking inspiration from LV-426, the ex-moon where the crew of the Nostromo first encounter the famous xenomorph, April 26th has been deemed 'Alien Day.' We honor the occasion with a Sacred Cow review of Ridley Scott's 1979 classic. Plus, a conversation with GREEN ROOM writer/director Jeremy Saulnier, and the 2016 Filmspotting Madness champion is crowned.
