Twenty Awesome Aliens in Movies


There’s an allure about beings from another planet.  We as humans are always interested in the unknown, and since the time of our grandparents, cinema has been infatuated with this unknown as well. Whether it’s an invasion of saucers, or a disgusting drool filled creature, aliens have been a staple in movies for a long time.  I’ve decided to select twenty out of this world beings that I personally think are awesome. Ranging from completely badass to completely ridiculous, here are my favorite 20 aliens in movies.


Aliens in Movies

Hands down one of the best, if not the best alien in all of cinema.  The face, the body, the strength, the disguise, hell even the fact that he self destructs which causes a mushroom cloud is badass.  “what da hell arrrre you.”  And that sinister laugh…forget about it.

I’m scared just looking at this picture.  This “perfect” life form will forever be burned into the brains of any person that sees any of the Alien movies.   Unstoppable.

The cutest, lovable little child alien, ET.  “ET phone home.”  ET sticks out his middle finger and it lights up.  ET can make bicycles fly.  ET has that cute walk and long neck.  He’s so funny!  I love ET.


Aliens in Movies

Jeff Bridges was awesome in this movie.  I’d have to say my favorite part is when he sings “New York New York” in the car.  It’s incredible.  That and when he punches that redneck and spits blood.

Water in the Abyss

Aliens in Movies

This is Cameron using that liquid effect before Terminator 2.  Everything about The Abyss is awesome.  And these aliens that can manipulate water are no exception.

Edgar in Men in Black

I mean who wouldn’t love a giant cockroach that can squeeze into Vincent D’Onofrio’s skin?

Three Boobed Chick in Total Recall

Aliens in Movies

Three of them?  Enough Said.

Space Pirates in Fifth Element

Aliens in Movies

I’m actually a fan of how dumb these guys are.  I love the scene when they’re all playing with that crazy gun that Zorg sells to them.  Plus they just look funny.

Meathead in Meatballs 2

Aliens in Movies

Perhaps my favorite alien in any movie, Meathead is the spoof of ET.  All he wants to do is fit in at summer camp.  And clearly you can see that his gray rubbery body doesn’t help.  Oh wait, put on a rain hat!  Perfect, now he’s assimilated.

Jeriba Shigan in Enemy Mine

Aliens in Movies

Louis Gossett Jr.  Enemy Mine is a mixed bag in my opinion.  Some people love the flick and some hate it.  I’ll let the readers argue this one out.

Kitty in Cocoon

Aliens in Movies

Played by Raquel Welch’s daughter Tahnee.  The fact that Tahnee posed nude in Playboy is reason enough for this addition.  Plus I love the term “Share Ourselves” meaning to have sex.

Grig in The Last Starfighter

Aliens in Movies

This is another movie that gets a mixed bag of reviews.  Although there’s tons of high comedy in this flick.  Grig is clearly one of the reasons this movie gets a thumbs up in my opinion.

Wiploc in Earth Girls are Easy

Aliens in Movies

Played by Jim Carrey (the red one).  You actually get a chance to see Carrey being pretty funny at times.  The movie is of course, horrible, but he and Damon Waynes are actually good in this flick.

Martian Call Girl in Mars Attacks

Aliens in Movies

A martian hooker?  Enough said.

Marybeth Hutchinson in The Faculty

Aliens in Movies

Played by Laura Harris.  Look man, you see her naked one second and then she’s the queen alien in the next.  That’s pretty impressive in my book.

Phil Gordian in The Arrival

Aliens in Movies

Ron Silver is perhaps one of the most underrated prick actors of our time.  I hate him in every single movie I’ve seen him in.  Which to me means he’s doing his job.  Same goes for The Arrival, which I think is a very underrated Sci-Fi flick.

Robert in Village of the Damned – 1995

Aliens in Movies

Played by Cody Darkin (guy on the right), Also check out David played by Thomas Dekker who is now in Sarah Conner Chronicles but used to be in Seinfeld.  These kids are badass, period.

Celeste Martin in My Stepmother is an Alien

Aliens in Movies

Hot chick as an alien?  You know my policy.

Sil in Species

See comment above.

Jabba the Hut

You didn’t think I’d leave this guy out did you?

    That scorpion-like thing at the end of Howard the Duck was pretty cool, especially considering that those were pre-CGI days…. speaking of things… THE THING was pretty freaking badass as well. That would be a good remake… IMAO

  2. “The Thing” was a remake of a 1951 movie, so is a remake of a remake really needed?

    Other honorable mentions:
    Khan (Star Trek II)
    The Blob
    The fat alien (From “The explorers”)
    Kevin Spacey (K-PAX)
    ‘Bugs’ (Starship Troopers)

    oh, and something’s wrong with this page. i clicked on ‘…..weapons’ but ‘….bad guy wins keeps coming up

  5. I have to be a nerd here and say that the 3 boobed chick from Total Recall is a mutant and not an alien. The only Aliens in that movie have been long dead.

    Non the less, thank you for putting her on the list anyways.

  6. Maby i’m the only person who watches naruto shippuden here, but for Village of the dammed, am I the only one who thought, ‘omfg its hidan!’ ?

  7. This list is missing The Silver Surfer. Also, there were no aliens in the movie The Abyss, it’s what the movie was about; unknown creatures discovered in the depths of our own ocean. The “water worm” that you have shown is simply a way for the creatures to look at things above water. (Like a Navy RC Submarine for us.)

  8. Clerg,

    You are correct about the Water Worm not being an Alien, but the things controlling it were… Clue…. Big Space Ship emerges from the water…

  9. Two words: Time Lords. (And yes there have been Dr. Who features, even if they were knock-offs designed to give Peter Cushing something to do between stints as Van Helsing.)

  10. Не подскажете, как ссылки в футере убрать, если он закодирован. С интересом читал ваш блог и тоже решил завести себе на подобную тему. Заранее спасибо.

  11. You forgot, “The Creature from the Black Lagoon”, “The Body Snatchers” (The Original) and this old black and white movie that was the predecessor to the Alien movies (can’t remember the name), where the creature boards the ship and try to destroy all on aboard. Back in the 50’s?????

  12. The creature from the black lagoon isn’t an alien, he was discovered on an expedition through the Amazon, and is a missing link in the evolutionary chain. Alien was heavily inspired by The Thing From Another World

  13. thanks man, cute collection.
    the sign that that’s good job – i’m wishing to do something too, to arrange funny reviews. to make funny subtitles for flicks..

  14. You started off going pretty good with horror aliens and then turned for the worse just going into average or funny aliens. If your gonna rock out the Predator and Alien then you should keep all the creatures in a horror base system. Once you start comparing them to other things then you lose thier worth as vile aggressive monsters.

  15. holy donkey balls you left out my favorite aliens ever! the clowns from killer clowns from outer space, yea they were retarded but COME ON their flippin clowns what could be better then that lmao =] and how they turn people into kotton kandy and pop corn i think anyways lmao their awesome as hell =]

  16. WHERE’S YODA said, “Man, I can’t believe they left Yoda out of this list!! IT’S A TRAP!!!”

    Yoda never said, “it’s a trap”.
    It was Admiral Ackbar

  17. peppersax,
    the “old black and white movie that was the predecessor to the Alien movies (can’t remember the name), where the creature boards the ship and try to destroy all on aboard”

    Terrified me when I was 8 years old.

    My favorite aliens – THE EYE CREATURES – especially the one with only half an alien costume and black leotards.

  18. The alien monster in Outlander is the best I’ve seen in a recent film. Awesome creature design and sound design. Worth seeing just for the creature.

  19. They get inside of you, grow horribly fast & come spattering out in a flood of gore. Children are the worst aliens of all!
    Smart kids give me a pain.
