This was a much better experience than either film. It is a challenge of patience to watch Alien through a modern lens, given how slowly it progresses. And Prometheus had far too much happening, from bizarre side stories to forced storytelling mechanics (like taking off your helmet on a foreign planet). Derelict does a great job of minimizing the quirks of the original films, while weaving them together with real artistry. The choice of black & white really sets the mood for this excellent fanmix. I love the side-by-side comparison near the end, of the Xenomorph hanging in the doorway struggling not to be sucked into space, and then the Engineer hanging in the doorway struggling not to be consumed by the trilobite.
