HMV have reduced the price of their Alien Quadrilogy to just £9.99 with free delivery. This makes it the cheapest price for this box set by a couple of quid. This is the first time I've seen it this price online, although I have seen it at similar prices at supermarkets in the past.

This nine DVD boxset contains all 4 films in the ALIEN saga: ALIEN, ALIENS, ALIEN 3 and ALIEN RESURRECTION along with just about every extra any fan of the ALIEN series could ever want;
ALIEN:
Recognised as a classic of both horror and science-fiction. Starring Sigourney Weaver as warrant officer Ellen Ripley, ALIEN focuses on the crew of the space cargo ship Nostromo, which lands on a moribund planet in response to a faint SOS. Inside a crashed ship, the crew members come upon strange pods, one of which spews forth a repellently fleshy insectile creature that locks on to the face of the unlucky Kane (John Hurt). Despite Ripley's advice, science officer Ash (Ian Holm) allows Kane to return to the ship, where the creature finally releases its grip. Soon, however, in one of the film's most infamous scenes, one of its offspring explodes horribly from Kane's stomach and scurries away. Dallas (Tom Skerritt), the vessel's captain, leads the others in a search for the rapidly growing, acid-dripping alien before it can cut them down one by one.
ALIEN is available on this box set in both the original and new Directors Cut editions.
ALIENS:
Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), the sole survivor from the first film, is awakened after 57 years of drifting through space, her stories disbelieved by Company executives who tell her that the alien's planet is now inhabited and colonized. When contact is suddenly lost with the colonists, Ripley returns to the planet with a squad of marines, an android (Lance Henriksen), and a Company executive (Paul Reiser) with a mission of his own. Once on the planet, no survivors can be found except for Newt, a little girl who awakens motherly instincts in Ripley just in time for the acid-blooded aliens to attack in what quickly becomes a one-sided battle for sheer survival. Considered by many to be the best of the series, ALIENS is a fast-paced, high-intensity thrill ride that set a new standard for action films and cemented director James Cameron's status as one of Hollywood's leading directors.
ALIENS is available on this sbox et in both the original and Special Edition editions.
ALIEN 3:
Directed by David Fincher; ALIEN 3 picks up almost directly after the events in ALIENS, finding Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) frozen in suspended animation as her ship crashes on Fiorina 161, a prison planet. When awakened by the prison's staff, she discovers that she is the sole survivor of her crew. Trapped on a barren planet with convicts and no weapons of any kind, Ripley soon realizes that an alien was also on the ship and has survived. As the savage creature begins to massacre inmates, Ripley bands together with the remaining prisoners and attempts to destroy it by wits alone.
ALIEN 3 is available on this box set as both the original edition and in a version based upon the Director's original cut.
ALIEN RESURRECTION:
In the last part of this saga, a drop of Ellen Ripley's (Sigourney Weaver) blood spawns a part human, part alien Ripley clone. Now that Ripley is dead, the clone has fallen into the hands of government scientists who want to harness the Ripley clone's breeding powers. When the new and improved Ripley lands on a ship of androids, her mere appearance is enought to set the action rolling.
ALIEN RESURRECTION is available on this box set in both the orginal and new extended edition.

Love the Alien films (especially 1 and 2)

Voted hot :thumbsup:

If you pop into McDonalds they are doing their monopoly deal - it appears that with every cup/ fries carton / burger carton they are giving £1 or £2 off any purchase at HMV worth £9.99 or more. So if you did pop in I bet you could find one and end up paying just £7.99 cash - what a bargain!

But you have to purchase a Mcdonalds to receive the discount, so you would have to factor in the extra cost into the discounted price

That's presuming the instore price is the same, often its higher at HMV instore than online. Plus you have then to subject yourself to such rancid fast food, but thats another story!

Alien Quadrilogy BoxSet (4 films on 9 DVDs) - not just £9.99 delivered @ HMV
..what else then??

i bought this from hmv just over a year ago for the same price, so it has been that price before...

I Still don't understand why these sets get voted hot when the same company sell the total destruction set (which is every alien film every predator film and every AVP film) for just £12.99 delivered!

If you're not too interested in the extra content I managed to get Alien & Predator Total Destruction - which includes:
Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien resurrection, Predator, Predator 2, AVP and AVP2 Requiem in a box set for £12 ish from Sainsbury.

They still had a few left in the big Hampton branch a couple of weeks ago.

typo...now just £9.99

This is a bargain, as is the Total Destruction set as another poster said above.

This set was actually selling for more than the bigger set instore last week - I think it was £14.99.

Regardless - crazy prices on these films at the minute. It wasn't long ago that this set was selling for £50-£60.

I could be wrong, but this set has many, many more extras in regard to the alien films. That boxset contains single disc editions of eah film, plus some people may not want the predator films, or the AVP spinoffs. As said, the only one worth having is Predator...

Ah yes Aliens, classic mid eighties styling, loved it at the time but its dated worse than the original film no thanks to the cheesy dialogue!

"Mostly they come out at night, mostly...." The infamous words from Newt and humoured further in South Park.

"In case you didnt notice we just got our asses kicked, game over man" and "How can they turn off the power, their just animals"

Vasquez: Look, man. I only need to know one thing: where they are.
Drake: Go, Vasquez. Kick ass.
Vasquez: Anytime, anywhere, man!
Hudson: Right, right. Somebody said "alien" she thought they said "illegal alien" and signed up!
Vasquez: F you, man!
Hudson: Anytime, anywhere.

Classic :-D

Bought this boxset when it first came out for around £45-50. Awesome films and brilliant extras (which you don't get in the other boxset with the predator films). Well worth the price. Voted hot.

Ordered, thanks. Can't fault just over a pound per disc! Heat added.

I ordered and received this from HMV, great deal! I've been waiting for it to come down in price for ages.
Even on DVD, the picture quality is great (I use the 360 so it upscales to 576p).

Heat added!

B***er. Back up to 14 quid and 23 for the total dest set.
