What exactly is dark science fiction?
If you have watched the film Alien and its sequels, are you watching a horror movie or a science fiction film?
It could be classed as sci fi because it has all the aspects of sci-fi, namely:-
It’s set in space, in the future.
There’s an android, advanced technology and a spaceship.
There is a new lifeform on a distant planet….
But you could argue it’s horror
The Nostomo’s crew take on a mersy mission.
They end up being hunted by a ‘monster’
There is an android under orders to take the “monster” back and sacrifice the human crew.
I would say the dark sci fi combines horror and science fiction because it has elements of both.
So what do you think.? Is Alien:-
- Sci fi
- Dark sci fi.
