Re: the literature/sources that "Alien" (1979) borrowed from

what would happen if Hollywood made a film adaptation of
A. E. van Vogt's The Voyage of the Space Beagle (1950), particularly the stories The Black Destroyer,[1939] in which a cat-like alien infiltrates the ship and hunts the crew, and Discord in Scarlet,[1939] in which an alien implants parasitic eggs inside crew members which then hatch and eat their way out.
Van Vogt's novel The Voyage of the Space Beagle incorporated these two stories along with others.

Would everyone just call it a Alien ripoff?
