The Alien Chestburster Scene

It’s a scene that we will never, ever forget. The 1979 film Alien introduced the monster by having it emerge from John Hurt’s chest where it was apparently incubating. We were horrified, not only by the idea of an alien growing inside his body, but also the death of a major movie star so early in the film. The new series Art of the Scene by Cinefix looks at the nuts and bolts of conceiving, designing, and pulling off the horrific scene in the days before non-stop CGI. (via Laughing Squid)
