Here are some movies Dead Space fans must see

7. Aliens (1986)

Movie Trailer

This classic film had no trouble making this list. Despite its age it’s definitely a must see for Dead Space fans. For those who have never seen the film, it’s a sequel to the 1979 Aliens film. Directed by legendary film director James Cameron, creator of the blockbuster film Avatar, this film takes place on the planet from the first film. It has now been colonized, but the colony has suddenly fell out of radio contact. Fearing the worst a rescue team is dispatched to investigate. Ripley, survivor of the first encounter, is sent with a team of battle tested space marines to investigate the colony; taking the Marine ship called the Sulaco. As they fly to the planet LV-426 Ripley recounts her experiences from the first film and her encounter with the Alien presence though no one seems to take her seriously and her warnings fall on deaf ears. What they find will change everyone’s minds and it’s up to Ripley to lead them to survival.

Fans of the Dead Space series will find plenty to keep them interested in this film. The way it was shot puts this film ahead of its time and makes it relevant even today. So what are the similarities? Well, let’ have a look. Like Dead Space, we have a crew following a distress beacon to an unknown fate. The antagonist is an alien presence with the ability to infiltrate the human body leading to the death of its host. The classic film clearly influenced others on this list such as Prometheus, both Alien films and Event Horizon. There isn’t quite as much of a psychological component in this film, but what it lacks in this area it makes up for with plenty of human vs alien action. The action scenes are well constructed, though the weapons definitely portray the age of the film.

All in all this is a dynamic, ageless film that Dead Space fans will definitely enjoy. I give this film an 8 out of 10
