‘ET the alien‘ (ET: Extraterrestrial, 1982) celebrates 40 years defining much of the style of fantastic cinema signed for the current big screen, partly because the imprint of its director, steven spielbergis still in force as both author and producer, and the legacy of the little brown alien remains, And it touches remember that its success created a whole avalanche of cheap imitations.
Although his influence can be followed in films like ‘Short circuit‘ (1986), ‘Purple People Eater’ (1988), ‘The iron Giant‘ (1999) or ‘Lilo & Stitch‘ (2002) what we care about now are their direct scruffy cousins. We must thank a great team of unashamed producers, writers and directors without whom we would not have been able to enjoy these thirteen samples of spiritual misery. A selection of substitutes for everything to a hundred of the adorable alien designed by Carlo Rambaldi. A dirty trip to challenge your mental health, laugh and cry.
