It's no small secret that I enjoy the Alien franchise. I love the classics, but also enjoy the recent iterations by Scott, of which I've written several pieces , recorded many videos on, and even done a fan-edit of. Yesterday I learned of a black-and-white fan-edit of Alien: Covenant (2017), titled Alien: Covenant - Necropolis Edition (2018). I wish to review it, here. Disclaimer: B efore reading this review, I strongly recommend watching the fan-edit, first. Before I start, a word on Covenant . I remember the negative criticism it received. Critics declared, "It was too quick, too abbreviated, too stupid!" I don't want to pretend Covenant was perfect—it wasn't—but I found many of the complaints to be short-sighted. Alien is a classic, but also the movie from which Covenant stems. Both are Gothic horror. They share similar ideas and follow the same, basic script. Alien , however, lacked a mad scientist. It had the setting without the host.
