Review:

On Film presents an always engaging, often provocative, and frequently brilliant philosophical investigation of the 'Alien' quartet of science-fiction/action/horror films...the book achieves the rare distinction of having something interesting and important to say to philosophers, fans and cinema studies scholars simultaneously.
American Society of Aesthetics Newsletter

A new and noteworthy addition to Routledge's high-profile Thinking in Action series, Stephen Mulhall's On Film presents an always engaging, often provocative, and frequently brilliant philosophical investigation of the 'Alien' quartet of science-fiction/action/horror films initiated in 1979 with Ridley Scott's eponymous classic...the book achieves the rare distinction of haiving something interesting and important to say to philosophers, fans, and cinema studies scholars simultaneously.
Film and Philosophy

This is clearly an important series. I look forward to reading future volumes.
–Frank Kermode

As a study showing how this particular film quartet thematizes deep metaphysical and existential eissues the book succeeds in an admirable manner, and makes for a thought-provoking read. It is clear, accessible and engaging, and thus certainly fulfills the aims of the series it appears in.
–Simo Saatela, Uppsala University, Philosophy in Review
