Maturity Rating Reason

Sex & Nudity
mild
Sex & Nudity Reason
There is some people who wake up only in their underwear, if there is any nudity in this scene it is brief and it is not the focus of the camera. At a hour and twenty two minutes to a hour and twenty three minutes you can see topless posters of women in the background of a scene. This scene is very gory and intense so it's easy to miss. Towards the end of the movie a woman undresses into her tank top and pants and is attacked by the alien, she continues the rest of the scene like this.

Violence & Gore
moderate
Violence & Gore Reason
The alien shoots its teeth into a man's head. (quickly, before the camera cuts away). noting too bad In the directors cut an alien bits into a man's head. A robotic character is burned a bit. We see his fake latex skin burn up and peel back, revealing a mannequin-like shell of a skull. No blood , as the character is a robot. An alien burst through a man's chest while he is eating. A crewmate shoots the alien it dies. (Blood is only shown in the directors cut.) Lambert is killed offscreen (you still hear her scream.) A man is hit in the head with a fire extinguisher and white substance comes out of him; he is then hit once more and his head tears off; moments later, we figure out he is a robot; afterwards, the crew asks him questions and at first he answers with sputters and spurts (his blood is white and milky, though). A woman is punched by a humanoid robot which causes her nose to bleed. A man cuts a "finger" of a facehugger and it bleeds acid.

Profanity
moderate
Profanity Reason
Five uses of "fuck" theatrical & director's cut. Eight uses of "shit", six uses of "bitch", some "ass" and milder words. Some uses of religious profanities "Goddamn", "God", "Jesus", etc.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
mild
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
The crew members smoke cigarettes and drink canned beer.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
severe
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Rated R for sci-fi violence/gore and language The Alien creature is not that scary. the frightening and intense scenes are about just as bad as stranger things. A note to animal lovers: though Jonesy the cat is in danger throughout the film, he survives. In one scene an alien bursts through a man's chest (This is only in the directors cut). In the scene when Ripley is getting ready for hyper-sleep, she turns around and an alien is hiding in an air duct (very sudden). When Dallas is in the air ducts, the alien screeches when he sees him and reaches out to grab him. In the scene with the alien eggs, one egg opens and an alien jumps out and jumps around
