Alien: Covenant (2017)

Set ten years after the events of Prometheus, the sixth entry in the Alien franchise (I refuse to count Alien vs Predator and AVP: Requiem) finds us on-board the Covenant on an intergalactic IVF mission. After a freak accident jolts the…

TRAILER PARK – Alien: Covenant

One is tempted to ask if, after several sequels and attempts to reinvigorate the Alien franchise, it might not be better to let sleeping creatures lie, and just remember the glory days of Ripley and crew in the 1979 classic?  Well if the…

TRAILER PARK – Alien Vs. Zombies
