Plot – Captain' Ellen Ripley is still young because of a long hibernation into a sophisticated container on the space ferry Nostromo and she is the only survivor of the terrible misfortune that destroyed her crew. The monstrous beings encountered on the planet Archeron haunt her nights with constant nightmares. Now a colony of space pioneers lives on Archeron. When she is entrusted with the mission of finding out the reason why the contact with that distant planet has been mysteriously interrupted, Ellen faces the proliferation of the monster from which she adventurously escaped. That time, in fact, there was only one alien, now countless scary aliens live there and they proliferate with a frenetic pace, more and more greedily hungry of human beings.
