Then again you could argue that that's all Alien comes down to in the end, an unstoppable killer picking off people one by one till the plucky heroin finishes it off.
Yeah, you're right about that. I guess it's all about the atmosphere and presentation of the story. With Event Horizon (although working on ten-plus-year old memories here so correct me if I'm wrong) and Sunshine, there wasn't much if any notion of the films being anything but straight up science-fiction adventure/exploration, whereas Alien starts out the same but changes gears a hell of a lot sooner.
