Force Material Episode LV-426: Alien w/ Brandon Wainerdi
In a galaxy far, far away, no one can hear you scream. This week, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ridley Scott's masterpiece by explaining how Star Wars influenced Alien!
This week's episode is a special crossover event, as we're joined by Brandon Wainerdi — host of the great Talking Bay 94 podcast, and the VP of Marketing at legendary horror and cult film magazine Fangoria — to explore the connections between Star Wars and Alien.
We also break down all the other influences that make up Alien's recombinant DNA, from Dune and The Dark Star to HP Lovecraft and The Who!
Finally, we rank our favourite Alien films — and our lists might surprise you.
