** The cast ''did'' know what was going to happen, they had read the script (which describes the scene in fairly graphic detail on it's own). What they ''didn't'' know was what the practical effect would look like, since no one had attempted something like this before. Even the effects team weren't certain if they'd be able to pull it off. They'd pepped the rig, complete with a scored t-shirt that the alien prop should be able rip through, and on their first try, it didn't. [[ThrowItIn This made it into the film,]] the first shot where the chestburster pops and pushes out the shirt, and everyone freezes. The actors in a fairly genuine "what the hell was ''that''?, the crew in an "OhCrap, it didn't work!" After a beat, everyone remembers their jobs, the crew makes the gag work, and the result is one of the most terrifyingly iconic scenes in cinema history.

* The original alien concept was made by the artist, H. R. Giger, who based his art style on his once frequent nightmares (ala the same one that caused HPLovecraft to introduce the concept of the EldritchAbomination). Despite the negative connotation of the word "nightmare", he apparently saw beauty in the creature.

* When Kane wakes up after the facehugger releases him, someone asks him what he remembers, and he says "Just some horrible dream about. . . smothering." ''He doesn't remember the facehugger grabbing him.'' A perfectly logical defense mechanism for the alien, preventing someone who's been grabbed from alerting others to their condition and threatening the embryo, but it also means [[ParanoiaFuel a person could be gestating an alien and have no idea until the pain starts.]]

* The thought of extraterrestrial beings that invade your body, through another being that technically ''rapes'' you, then burst out of your chest when you least expect it.

** It also adds to, yet again, another amount of FridgeHorror. This means that the Xenomorphs don't NEED a queen in order to make eggs. They can literally MAKE MORE from the bodies of those who have been face hugged if they lack one.

** It also adds to, yet again, depending wether or not deleted scenes are canon (It IS a deleted scene, after all. Plus, the Xenomorphs are never seen doing that again in anything else, so wether or not the scene is canon is quite debatable.) another amount of FridgeHorror. This means that if this scene is canon, then this means that the Xenomorphs don't NEED a queen in order to make eggs. They can literally MAKE MORE from the bodies of those who have been face hugged if they lack one.

** One character thinks about the hypothesis that the Alien's have acid blood because ''it makes them taste bad.'' '''What the hell could be out there trying to eat the fucking ALIEN?!?'''
