    Default Alien - "This movie is about interspecies rape"

    http://www.cracked.com/article_18932...rely-rape.html

    "Bringing Giger on board turned out to be the decision that shaped the entire movie that itself spawned a franchise and some of the most recognizable images in all of film history. Giger designed the alien, the derelict ship and its captain, and the alien landscape. And every last bit of it is loaded with galactic penises and space vaginas."

    This may be why we consider it an iconic horror film

    Before there was Alien there was Philip Jose Farmer.. the pioneer in gender bending alien rape. Come on, you're now using cracked as a source.

    This ain't rocket science.

    Nor is Giger's art for the squeamish... while I like it, I still find it pretty unsettling as well. (Alien captured the sexuality of his visual art, but there was a whole subcategory of dead/decrepit babies that I don't think made the movie imagery. Wow.)

    And then you get a guy like Jack L. Chalker (Baltimore's own son! Wheee!) who habitually abused/debased women in his various scifi stories, just some really bizarre stuff.

    There's just too much processing by that point. You're then referencing that they referenced primarily for laughs, probably from a secondary source. Which also means that they may have inaccurately framed the subject primarily for the 'rule of funny'. I guess I prefer anything factual to be sourced further up the ladder.

    I guess I just like to dab a little Funny on my Serious. (Tastes great, more filling.)
