One of Hollywood's most celebrated taglines, from the Ridley Scott classic "Alien," tells us: "In space, no one can hear you scream."
But anyone who's ever seen a proper sci-fi thriller will tell you that's not true at all.
Just watch "Event Horizon." Or "Sunshine." Or the brand new space haunter "Apollo 18." Even "Alien" itself.
So to all you future space travelers, use the footage above as a cautionary tale. Intergalactic exploration is f**king scary. And chances are there will be screaming. Lots and lots of screaming.

You might think that after more than three decades of talking about her iconic role of Ellen Ripley in the "Alien" films, Sigourney Weaver would be sick of it all.
But as she revealed in an extensive new interview with Moviefone, Weaver not only isn't tired of Ripley,she's actually hoping to get one last shot at James Cameron's interstellar monsters -- because she's convinced she "could definitely kick that alien's ass again."
And that's not all Weaver had to say about Cameron, "Alien" and "Avatar" when she sat down to discuss the 25th anniversary of "Aliens," still one of the most popular sequels in movie history. Get More »
Looks like Charlize Theron might be swapping out the kind of monster that shoots men for the type that bleeds acid and lays babies in your chest.
That's right, lovely Charlize is being courted like a Southern belle by 20th Century Fox to take a role originally earmarked for Michelle Yeoh in the "Alien" prequel, but getting her to sign on the dotted line ain't gonna be a dance around the maypole.
According to Vulture, the scripted part of "a fortysomething, tough-but-sexy crew member" named Vickers is being beefed up and tailored to the Academy Award-winner's liking. She's also presumably demanded a hundred sheep from the finest stock in all the valley, and exotic spices from faraway continents. Get More »
If you thought every great film had already maxed out its possibilities on home video (you know, VHS, DVD, special editon DVD, anniversary edition DVD, Blu-ray, special edition Blu-ray... and so on), well, you'd be mistaken.
This year proved another great year for high profile DVD and Blu-ray releases, and what better time to run through the 2010's highlights than during holiday shopping mania? Get More »
In space, no one can hear you scream, but you can hear us roaring in frustration now that Ridley Scott's "Alien" prequel may be delayed until 2013.
According to Scriptflags, the otherworldly sci-fi horrorfest was due to begin principal photography in February, with "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" star Noomi Rapace duking it out against "Girl With the Neon Suit" Olivia Wilde for the lead role of a Colonial Marine general, presumably a "no-nonsense" one with a giant gun.
