|AKA: Good Ol' Giger's Alien|
|Kingdom: Classic Monster|
|Genus: Big Nasty|
|Species: Biggus Buggus|
|Special Powers: Acid for blood. Double mouth. Tough. Mean. Nasty. Fast. And somehow capable of sensing when humans are walking, alone, down a darkened corridor, whistling happily to themselves and thinking all is good and just and right in the world. That's when it kills 'em.|
|Weakness: Sudden temperature changes, so ease the AC up slowly, OK? Oh, and Sigourney Weaver. Then again, I've got a weakness for Sigourney Weaver myself, so who can blame them?|
|Notes: Director David Fincher tried to make the alien seem new and fresh by having it come out of a dog, walk around on all fours, and run on the ceiling with the camera showing us it's POV, which was oddly reminiscent of a Surge ad shot through a fisheye lens. Whatever. David Fincher went on to become an acclaimed director after this, which just goes to show you how short people's memories are.|
