Alien

Ian Holm's character Ash is an android. Ripley finally kills the alien on her spaceship. Ripley and her cat have a nice, peaceful sleep.

Continuity mistake: In the shot of the alien's tail wrapping around the back of Lambert's legs right before it kills her, the floor is different to what it was before, there is water suddenly falling from the ceiling when there wasn't before and her trousers have changed from white to blue. This is because that shot was originally intended to be used when Brett was killed.
