Alien trailer tops IFC list

50 Trailers IFC

IFC recently posted a listed of The 50 Greatest Trailers of All Time.

As so often with these kinds of list, there are some WTF inclusions (Red Eye?!) but there are also many worth a look.

However, it is the Number 1 entry of Alien that you should really check out if you haven’t ever seen it.

The lack of dialogue, haunting sounds and first rate editing all reflect the creepy atmosphere of the film as well not revealing too much (sadly a lost art in recent years).

(N.B. It is also worth looking out for a shot which I don’t think I’ve ever seen before at 1.09-1.10)
