The Alien franchise (okay, maybe just the first two movies) is a cult classic for many cinephiles, famed for its groundbreaking art design and genuinely terrifying plot. One of Alien's most defining yet underrated elements is its iconic minimalist logo, but alternative concept art suggests that it could've looked completely different.

An alternate logo designed by Michael Doret caught the attention of Alien fans who were divided by the creation. The 70's creature feature style is certainly a dramatic shift from the original and in itself, tells a completely different tale.
