But I remember someone else saying that the first Alien is a slasher film covered up with a great story and visual storytelling. Can't AvP:R do the same thing?
Probably not. The thing with the old school horror mentality is that it was more story minded and classical. This enabled it to be blended with scifi to become a hybrid, something not slasher. Nowadays horror is completely cheap. Thats why I always thought the approach to these films MUST not include "were going to make a bloody monster picture". Bad connotation, slippery mindset. Make a gritty scifi film plz. And not a NERDY scifi film like A res either lol.
Now that there is no novelization, I am starting to question this film even more now. I did like the new interview and a small mention of an attempt at story, but dont they all say that?
No novel = another eerie coincidence, and I dont like it.
