“In space no one can hear you scream.”

With that simple statement Alien introduced a generation to a universe of face huggers and other things that terrified not only the characters on screen but also audiences everywhere.

The story was simple: A crew of researchers on their way back to Earth stop to investigate a distress call coming from a planet near them. But what they find is a perfect killing machine, an alien that incubates in a human host and then goes on a killing spree. Only the tenacity and resourcefulness of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) ends the threat from spreading to Earth.

After the first installment was such a hit a sequel was inevitable. So Aliens took Ripley and a group of Marines to the remnants of a human colony that has been ravaged by the parasitic aliens. The movie was a big shift from the original, featuring more overt action where the first was more a dramatic fright fest but was even more successful than the first movie.

Ripley’s story would continue with both Alien3, which introduced audiences to first-time director David Fincher, and Alien: Resurrection, which finished the story 200 years after the events of the third movie.

All four movies are available on PlayStation Store now as Special Editions with Bonus Features. So even if you’ve seen the movies you’ll want to check these out and find out even more.

And now the story continues in the new game Alien: Isolation. Set 15 years after the first movie (meaning it also takes place before Aliens) it features Ripley’s daughter Amanda, who has set out to find out what happened to her mother. The game features the same sort of thrills and chills as the movies as players navigate Amanda through her struggle to not just find out the truth but also simply survive.

Shadow of Mordor: Friday Night Gamers: It’s Friday Night Gamers time, and this week is all about Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor! Listen to our brand new selection of songs as you battle as Talion in Middle-Earth to break his curse.

Stax Soul Classics: The flagship indie label that defined the Southern soul sound, Stax Records introduced the pop world to such stellar artists as Otis Redding, The Staple Singers, William Bell and The Dramatics. Stax talents such as Isaac Hayes, The Bar-Keys and Booker T & The MG’s started as behind-the-scenes alchemists and were quickly elevated to brilliant careers. Stax folded in 1975 but its catalog is still prized today.

Dance/Electronic New Releases: Fantastic mix this week of new tracks from SBTRKT, The 2 Bears, Royksopp as well as top singles from Deejay Deer and AVICII. We start this mix off with a track from techno pioneers LFO, whose founding member Mark Bell sadly passed away this week.

Brit Pop: When American grunge ascended at the start of the ‘90s, Britain fought back for alt rock dominance with a guitar-based party-ready sound that recalled everything from the glory days of The Beatles and The Stones to The Smiths and The Jam. Blur, Oasis, Supergrass, The Verve and Pulp led the new breed while veterans such as Paul Weller, Morrissey, Julian Cope and Edwyn Collins were sited as key influences.

Intro To…Movie Themes: Imagine watching Jaws without John Williams’ gripping film score. Movies have been brightened by the orchestral brilliance of Bernard Herrmann, Ennio Morricone and Philip Glass and given jazzy, midnight sheen by the likes of Henry Mancini, John Barry and Duke Ellington. Today’s synth mavens, such as Cliff Martinez and Daft Punk compose pulsating electronic scores which recall the glory days of Vangelis and Giorgio Moroder. The directors John Carpenter and Clint Eastwood often score their own films.

Alt/Indie New Releases: Weezer are back with an album that delivers on the promise of the Blue Album so many years ago. Other new tracks comes from Tweedy, Perfume Genius and Christopher Owens (ex-Girls). Don’t miss out on the especially Kate Bush-esque tracks from BØRNS and Lydia Ainsworth.

Solo John Lennon excelled at direct, often painfully confessional songs that confronted his childhood, his emotional highs and lows, political ideals and the course of his marriage to Yoko Ono. Often at his artistic best when his life was falling apart, Lennon recorded these songs in ten short years when he was fighting to stay in America, separating and reuniting with Yoko, and starting over as a husband and father. We collected some of the best for our John Lennon: MU Icon playlist, which features beloved songs such as “Imagine,” “Jealous Guy” and “(Just Like) Starting Over.”

Listen to the John Lennon: MU Icon playlist right here.
