The Alien quadilogy is a sci-fi horror series mainly revolving around a female protagonist named Ripley, whose troubled life takes her from one horrific situation to another, as her destiny is inexorably intertwined with a deadly species of xenomorph of unexplained origin that wreaks havoc on every living thing it comes into contact with. But this series is so much more than just a tale of deadly aliens. Much of the plot, characters and settings contain psychosexual undertones.
