First: I think it helps to like the earlier Alien movies (1 & 2) or at least know something about them to understand some of the plot.
As a stand-alone movie it was a solid movie. It freaked out Ms. Nimble for sure, but left a person with a bunch of loose ends to figure out.
As a precursor to Alien- it was running uphill and into the wind during a snowstorm with regards to expectations.
