'Movie Novel' is the phrase used on the cover of this book; trademarked it perhaps should be noted. It's basically a live action graphic novel with the images taken from the original film along with Dan O'Bannon's dialogue and some basic Basil Exposition. Because you control the pace you read, how long or how little time you look at each image, you are in effect seeing a different edit of the film. I don't know if that would please Ridley Scott or drive him mad!
In truth it's a pale copy of the film. There is no real tension, perhaps because there's no music, no sound effects, and dialogue on the page only allows one person to talk at a time. Memorabilia for film buffs. ( )

In the dark ages before home video, this was as close as you could get to owning a movie--a shot-by-shot picture book. I got it because you don't get a very good look at the monster until the end of the movie, and I wanted to see what I'd missed. I wasn't dissappointed. ( )
