Alien

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Penny dreadful -

Ri­d­ley Scott, 1979 Much has been writ­ten of gen­der pol­i­tics in the Alien movies, the pe­nis- like xenomorph, the ship’s com­puter called “Mother”, the boobs on the bot­tom of the Nostromo... but no preg­nancy hor­ror list can be com­plete with­out John Hurt’s oral im­preg­na­tion and chest­burster “birth” scene. Night­mar­ish, and acted with ter­ri­fy­ing con­vic­tion too.
