  1. How can pre-Aliens movies be rip-offs if they were released initially? Or is there something I’m missing?

  2. How about Carnosaur 2 from Corman which was an almost shot for shot remake of Alien, only with Dinosaurs? And also, how is The Abyss a ripoff of Alien? The alien isn’t even the bad guy. In fact I feel you sold it poorly making it seem like the crew is trying to survive the aliens when in fact they’re trying to survive themselves and are eventually saved by the aliens. Now you want an underwater Alien knockoff…Leviathan. It’s almost a shot for shot remake only it’s underwater instead of in space. Even has the main character to escape only to find the, “thought dead” alien reemerge for one final scare.

  3. Many of those were no where near “rip-offs”… Maybe instead of trying to publish svereal videos each day, try for one quality video a day or every couple days.

    Quality > Quantity

  4. Aside from the Italian ones and the number one pick, I wouldn’t say any of these are rip offs. Inspired by maybe but not rip offs.
