I'm less concerned with being "scared the shit out of" than I am feeling the tension and suspense. I felt virtually none of that in Prometheus.

Prometheus didn't turn out to be as profound as Ridley intended it to be.  I don't expect Alien: Covenant to be as scary as Ridley thinks it will be.

Thanks SM. Fangoria's award for Avp though lol. But most, if not all, of these awards are for how pretty the movie was. Cameron said it doesn't make sense continuity wise and it's true, glaringly so. I'll admit, some ideas were ok but i can't watch Prometheus without face palming at how stupid its characters are or rolling my eyes at how scaled down the pilot race ended up being just so Scott could make his own human origin story because he's such a big fan of 2001. Because thats what Prometheus was in actuality. He only added Alien "DNA" in his story so people would actually show up. And now since Isolation and fankamp's Alien movie has been announced and has met with positive reception by fans, Scott figures he's got no choice but to toss more xeno's into his sequel in the hopes he doesn't end up producing a movie that fails to top Alien once again. He went from Xeno's aren't scary to his sequel literally having Alien in it and now this bit of news which mirrors quotes from Prometheus. And that shit was'nt scary.

I believe he'll succeed this time. Prometheus was a sci-fi drama, and Alien: Covenant is going to be a full blown horror film(without losing any of the existential, cerebral elements). So imagine a film rife with the dread and horror of the Caesarean scene. He's still got it.

Loved Prometheus.  Still do.

You and me both. ;)

Me three!
Us four!
Now five... (millions)   ;D
I like Prometheus but wouldn't go so far as to say it's "lovable" material. It's kind of like that one kid you may have. They're smart, good looking and hard working but instead of going to college and getting a career minded background; they go into art shit or something. Sure once or twice out of a hundred they succeed or at least 10% make a decent career out of it but 90% of the time you'll be moaning forever more why they didn't just get that liberal arts degree instead.

Also, maybe Ridley is being literal with his "scare the shit out of people" comment. He could be selling Sir Riddles extra strong laxatives. Now with "black goo" power. When that colon tightens up, nothing like having trillions of little dna poo deconstructors personally scare the shit right out of you! Sir Riddles! The Power to Shit. On sale everywhere. $29.95.
