20 Great Movies And TV Shows With Aliens

Mork And Mindy

Mork comes from Ork to study humans, and suddenly hilarity ensues. This show ran from 1978 to 1982, and was Robin Williams’ first long running stint on TV, playing a wacky alien. This show definitely didn’t make people afraid of aliens.


ALF didn’t make people afraid of aliens either, although it may have scared a cat or two. ALF ran from 1986 to 1990 and was about a wise cracking furry alien that spent his time with one family, and most of it was spent trying to eat their cat.

The Fourth Kind

There are a lot of alien movies about making contact with those from other planets. Heck, there’s even a movie named Contact. The Fourth Kind is abduction. That should be enough to tell you that this is one freaky movie. You aren’t just going to see aliens, you are going to see them take someone, even in your nightmares.

Independence Day

Independence Day was the day the world fought the aliens and won, in this scenario anyway. This movie gives the depiction that when they come, they’ll come to kill, not to make friends. The original film came out in 1996 and next year the aliens will be back.
