HYPNOBOBS 80 - The Origins of A L I E N
With the long awaited Prometheus, Ridley Scott's much anticipated return to the universe of Alien, finally unleashed on our screens, Mr Jim Moon heads for deepest space to explore the origins of that most seminal movie. Joined on this epic voyage by Mr Lee Medcalf and Mr Darren Barnard of The Black Dog podcast, we explore three similarly seminal movies that are said to have inspired both Scott and screen writer Dan O'Bannon - spaced out cult classic Dark Star (1974), vintage scifi shocker It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958), and Mario Bava's interstellar gothic Planet of the Vampires (1965).
Warning! Contains assorted rambling, swearing, wild speculation, and On The Buses!
