** Brett's death is terrifying, as in the theatrical version, Brett stares at the Alien for a second before the Xeno kills him with its inner mouth. In the extended edition, the Alien pulls Brett towards him while using its tail to ensure he cant run, and lets Brett scream what is it and calling for help before he is killed. The Alien had the chance to kill Brett quickly, but instead let him stand there terrified. The Alien enjoyed watching Brett look terrified, indicating it can actually be sadistic and genuinely evil.

** What arguably makes it worse is that, atleast to some viewers, the Xenomorph IS beautiful in an alien, otherwordly sort of way. It has a sleek, symmetrical design that doesnt trigger a horror response when just seen as an image.

** 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.]]
