    I think one of the main things that made that movie scary was that everyone's a potential rape victim. I read something about how they mentioned that previous movies weren't as scary to men because it usually expressed the concept of unspeakable physical torture and men generally had the idea they're tough as nails and can withstand that. Something like that, they said. I think that's what they said.

    Then Alien is the one that's goes to a deeper level of fear with the sexual violation. And supposedly men are really creeped out by the idea of getting raped in the mouth and impregnated by some creepy hand thingy with a vagina mouth.

    Or so I've heard... too lazy to look up the source.

    That was a good video. O'Bannon wasn't very pleased that they mangled his story a bit at Fox. I'd say they improved it quite a bit. Here's the original O'Bannon script.

    Yes, I've read O'Bannon's draft. Giler and Hill's revisions made it significantly better. Right off the bat even the names in O'Bannon's script are silly: the ship is called Snark and its captain is Standard.

    Now that I think about it, those little alien eggs did look a lot like candy...

    I'm rewatching Prometheus tonight.

    Wish me luck.
