Far beyond what we have explored, might lie a planet with life just like ours. While astronomy hasn’t reached there yet, cinema hasn’t failed in its imagination. Isn’t that the beauty of films, it takes you to places which may not even exist and make them palpable beyond anything real? Here is the list of top alien movies ever made. You can watch some of these best alien movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
1. E.T. the Extra Terrestrial (1982)
Steven Spielberg directed ‘Extra Terrestrial’ is about a lonesome being from another planet and his quest to go back home. His friendship with the earthling ‘Elliot’ forms the crux of a joyfully drafted drama. ‘ET’ is more than just its plot. It is a reflection of the innocence that precedes adulthood, about friendships which we all once had and ‘that time’ which never comes back. Nostalgia is guaranteed!

2. Alien (1979)
‘Alien’ was released at a time when space exploration had created a new wave of curiosity over the possibility of extra terrestrial life. Director Ridley Scott uses the combination of mystery and fear already surrounding aliens to create a horror film. The absence of technology in that era is converted into its strength as the film keeps the unseen invisible to the audience.
