Today is Alien Day – an annual day in which fans of the Alien series celebrate all things Xenomorph.

How will you be celebrating?

I shall be spending the day pretending Alien: Covenant (2017) doesn’t exist.

I’m joking.

What’s Alien: Covenant?

I shall also be checking out more of the Alien shorts that have recently dropped on YouTube courtesy of IGN, Tongal and 20th Century Fox. As previously noted, these fan-made shorts have been produced to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Alien and include: Alien: Alone, Alien: Harvest, Alien: Night Shift, Alien: Ore and Alien: Specimen.

Here is Ore

And Nightshift

As a heads-up, if you want to revisit past glories today, you can also pick up digital copies of Alien, Aliens, Alien3, Alien: Resurrection, Prometheus and *cough* Alien: Covenant today for £3.99 a piece on Amazon Prime Video.

Anyway, happy Alien Day y’all!
