    There are two aliens in film that are far and away the most horrific: the Predator and the "Xenomorph". I love them both but I think the latter is on another level of creepiness and horror altogether, which is why it's my favourite.

    The Predators have a sort of honour code. They won't hurt you if you're not sporting enough to kill. They have reason. The Xenomorph, better known simply as THE Alien, has no ability to reason whatsoever. You can't bargain with one. You can't convince one you're not worth killing.

    But then again the purpose of the Alien is not to kill you, and that's what makes it even worse than the Predator. The Predator is just out hunting for sport. Yes, having a plasma cannon blow a hole in you isn't a particularly nice death. And having your skull ripped out to be kept as a trophy is not exactly a 'decent' treatment of your remains. But at least that's all a Predator wants to kill you for.

    On the other had the Alien doesn't kill you. It doesn't want to kill you. It needs you to reproduce, so it will snatch you up, incapacitate you and leave you to be implanted by the larval 'facehugger' form. Aliens don't kill you: they fuck you. The whole purpose of the Alien's existence is to rape you. If that isn't humiliating enough the birth of the bastard offspring kills you. And it's an agonizingly slow death at that.

    I never thought of it this way

    That adds a whole new depth to the species that I had not considered

    What a fantastic antagonist

    Just kidding, to each their own.

    I liked Predator more for the human characters than the alien. Blain (Jesse Ventura) is hilarious, much funnier than Pvt. Hudson (Bill Paxton), the funniest character in the Alien series.

    The world is a better place after hearing lines like, "You're hit man, you're bleeding!"
    "I AIN'T GOT TIME TO BLEED."

    Oh, and I also love Jadzia Dax, for reasons totally unrelated to the Alien/Predator.

    Best was the mirror universe Dax:

    Actually, now that I think about it, I might have liked mirror universe Ezri even more.
