Movies, TV shows, games, and books, you can’t get away from the things. They are either funny and cute, or evil child abducting monsters. They might stick a probe up your bum or they might just want to go home. Whatever they want, a truly amazing alien will keep kids up at night; some adults too. A good alien is not just scary, but believable, they might not even be intelligent, but they must look good. A back story can help but keeping the aliens mystery’s is also good. So this is my top
5. Sandworms (Dune books)
The sandworm is the only alien on the list that does not exhibit a clear intelligence. The sandworm or the spice worms, are the central species in Frank Herbert epic Dune novels. The giant worms have are a crucial part of the dune (Arrakis) planet, ecosystem. They are the create a spice that allows pilots powers for safe interstellar space travel so they are most important things in the dune universe. The worms are the central to how the whole universe of the Dune Universe and they look pretty bad ass so that is why they are on the list.
4. Combine (half life series)
In Half life the combine have a number of different looks, they can be transformed human, alien or a synthetic lifeform with AI . They have taken over the earth and are extremely smart as well as being completely evil. Combine are harsh rulers that use violence to keep the population subservient. The combine are a lot of different races together, so i can’t go their look to put them on the list, although the grub like alien (pic) is perhaps the most alien that is shown in the series. The combine is the only truly bad aliens on the list, they have not killed the population but enslaved them. They are my favorite alien race from a game.
3 Prawns (District 9)
The fucking prawns from district 9, are the most disgusting aliens. While the Aliens from Alien drool everywhere, this species eats cat food. The aliens are abused by humans which is a strange twist to the alien movie, and they look like seafood. I like prawns so they are on the list.
2. ET (E.T)
You can’t have a list of aliens with out including the leathery, rugby ball headed, dwarf. All ET wanted to was “go home” but we humans just could not let that happen. I know how unlikely that an alien would look so close to humans, but would we really feel such sadness for a gas cloud that speaks through farts? i think not. ET goes on because i’d feel bad if i didn’t put the little fella (was he a man?) on here.
1. Grey Aliens (various including stargate)
When we think of aliens we think of Greys, they are burned into are conciseness. They might be tall or short, they look like unnatural humans that could do with a bite more to eat, and they are at the scariest when you only see their outline. Greys have been in many programs and films with the Asgard from stargate being one of the more famous ones. Given that i am such a big sci-fi fan you might think as a kid i would love aliens, not the case, i had so many nightmares about the Greys, that it is not a joke. I would stay up at night and think they would open my door with their long spindly arms. That is why Greys are number 1 because they scare the shit out of me and a lot of other like minded people.
