'Alien: Covenant' is one of the most terrifying films ever made

• 3½ stars out of four •

Fans of the “Alien” franchise who found the prequel “Prometheus” (2012) to be insufficiently hair-raising will be in heaven this time around. “Alien: Covenant” is one of the most terrifying films ever made. It’ll have moviegoers gripping their armrests and fighting the impulse to shield their eyes.

Working from a screenplay by John Logan (“Skyfall”) and Dante Harper, director Ridley Scott — who helmed the original “Alien” (1979) — has come up with a stylish, nonstop crowd-pleaser that delivers big-time. And in Waterston, he has an actor who proves to be an inspired successor to Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley.

Reportedly, at least two more “Alien” prequels are planned. If they’re half as good as this one, prepare to tremble.
