Another Top 10 Scariest Movie Aliens


These extra-terrestrials will make you think twice before exploring the darkness of space. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be counting down our picks for another top 10 scariest movie aliens.

For this list, we’re looking at more terrifying movie aliens that are without question, the scariest in our galaxy or any other. If you didn’t see a big screen extra-terrestrial or UFO you thought should be on the list, be sure to check out our first video of the Top 10 Scariest Movie Aliens!

#10: Alien Agents
“The Arrival” (1996)

A common MO amongst sinister alien races attempting to take over our planet is to disguise themselves as humans. This way they can undermine us from within as opposed to waging an all-out planetary war right from the get-go. What makes these aliens downright scary isn’t their superior technology or their freakish appearance (though that does add to it). It’s the fact that anyone and everyone could be one of them and you wouldn’t even know it until it’s too late. What’s more goosebump-inducing than that?

#9: Aliens
“Signs” (2002)


The mention of M. Night Shyamalan ignites more jeers than cheers these days, but the once promising director gave us some unforgettable scares in the sci-fi thriller, “Signs.” Although simplistic in design, these outer space foreigners left a lasting impact on moviegoers. Who could forget the intense kitchen scene or the jaw-dropping birthday interruption footage? The horror came from what we didn’t see and Shayamalan built upon the tension to create some truly memorable moments. Let’s hope those splashes of water were enough to keep them from coming back.

#8: Owl Aliens
“The Fourth Kind” (2009)


Going under deep hypnosis, Milla Jovovich’s Dr. Abigail Tyler uncovers haunting visions of alien abductions that have become a common occurrence amongst the residents of Nome, Alaska. Although they don’t actually look like owls and the physical details of their appearance are hidden throughout the film, the interpretations given by their horrified victims is enough to send chills running down your spine. Their visions of majestic owls quickly morph into the haunting imagery of an alien abduction. Birdwatching will never feel the same again.

#7: Parasite Creatures
“Cloverfield” (2008)


As if dealing with the giant-sized Cloverfield monster wasn’t bad enough, the survivors of what they initially believe to be an earthquake find something equally terrifying within the sewers of New York City. These insectoid parasites, having fallen off the big guy, have made their own home beneath the streets. Armed with razor sharp teeth and night vision, these would make one actually yearn for a tick or cockroach instead. To make matters even worse, their bite leads to a nasty infection that’s only outcome appears to be a gruesome death. Taking refuge in the sewers probably wasn’t the best idea.

#6: Extraterrestrials
“Fire in the Sky” (1993)


One would hope that our first contact with aliens will be nothing like this. The extraterrestrial beings in “Fire in the Sky” are somewhat plain-looking and don’t appear very menacing, but what makes them utterly terrifying is the way they conduct horrific and intensely painful experiments such as the ones Travis Walton goes through. This is exactly the sort of abduction that nightmares are made of. Let’s hope that if aliens actually want to study us that it’s through more of a face-to-face conversation, not a brutal game of Operation.

#5: Sil
“Species” (1995)


Created by genetically splicing human DNA with that of alien DNA, the drop dead gorgeous Sil is one smoking hot alien that isn’t shy about her intentions. With an unstoppable desire to reproduce, she searches for a mate, often with extremely deadly results. Strong, smart and possessing incredible regenerative capabilities, Sil is as dangerous as she is sexy. Definitely not the type of girl that you’d want invite to dinner to meet your parents, especially when she has those tentacles coming out of her shoulders and back.

#4: Mr. Grey
“Dreamcatcher” (2003)


Based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, “Dreamcatcher” follows a group of friends that come across a parasitic alien species that have the ability to possess an unwilling victim’s body as well as use telepathy to control their victims. The main alien antagonist, given the name “Mr. Grey,” along with several sharp-toothed alien worms, seek to populate the planet with their larvae. But it’s his methodical and gruesome methods that make him stand out and one the fiercest aliens this side of the Milky Way.

#3: Puppet Masters
“The Puppet Masters” (1994)


What’s up with aliens and taking over our brains? In “The Puppet Masters,” the government is out to prevent a secret invasion of our planet by parasitic aliens that inject themselves into our bodies and control our minds. To make things worse, these guys aren’t exactly the prettiest beings to come our way. It definitely makes us wonder that if aliens are going to come and take over planet, couldn’t they be at least a little more pleasant to look at?! Yuck!

#2: Alien
“Extraterrestrial” (2014)


When a group of friends decide to get together for a party at a cabin in the middle of the woods, horror movie 101 dictates that treacherous events await them. In “Extraterrestrial,” this group finds themselves confronting some absolutely vicious otherworldly beings that happen to crash land nearby. If these aliens weren’t menacing enough to begin with, killing one of them certainly didn’t help the friends’ chances of survival. The sheer brutality that these aliens unleash upon these unfortunate victims is one for the record books and makes us second guess the idea of exploring other planets.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Slug-like Aliens
“Night of the Creeps” (1986)


Aliens with Glowing Fangs
“Attack the Block” (2011)

Mimics
“Edge of Tomorrow” (2014)

Brain Bug
“Starship Troopers” (1997)


#1: Grey Aliens
“V/H/S/2” (2013)


What starts out as a fun get together with a group of teenagers strapping their camera to their lovable Yorkie quickly turns into a nightmare. The camera captures every terrifying second as the kids are abducted one by one. Tricked by flashing lights and sirens, the kids head towards the police, but ultimately fall right the grey aliens’ trap. We are given one last haunting image of them being taken away while their dying dog takes one last breath, and it all leaves us speechless with thoughts of space travel seemingly less and less appealing with every passing moment.
